• Mark Watney est l'un des premiers hommes à poser le pied sur Mars. Il pourrait être le premier à y mourir.

    Lorsqu'une tempête de sable mortelle force ses coéquipiers à évacuer la planète, Mark se retrouve seul et sans ressources, irrémédiablement coupé de la Terre.

    Mais il n'est pas prêt à baisser les bras. Ingénieux, habile et terriblement têtu, il affronte un par un des problèmes insurmontables. Parviendra-t-il à défier le sort ? Le compte à rebours a déjà commencé...

  • Anglais THE MARTIAN

    Andy Weir

    I'm stranded on Mars. I have no way to communicate with Earth. I'm in a Habitat designed to last 31 days. If the Oxygenator breaks down, I'll suffocate. If the Water Reclaimer breaks down, I'll die of thirst. If the Hab breaches, I'll just kind of explode. If none of those things happen, I'll eventually run out of food and starve to death.

  • Artémis

    Andy Weir

    Un thriller bourré d'adrénaline, d'humour et de science. Jasmine Bashara, dite Jazz, une jeune femme d'origine saoudienne, vit sur Artémis depuis l'âge de six ans. Elle connaît la cité lunaire comme sa poche : ses cinq bulles où se répartissent toutes les classes sociales, du plus riche au plus misérable, ses lois si particulières - et pas seulement gravitationnelles - et sa corruption. La vie sur Artémis est rude quand on n'est pas un riche touriste ou un milliardaire.
    Jazz rêve d'une vie meilleure, et son job de porteuse (elle livre à domicile les denrées légales et de contrebande importées de Terre) ne lui promet guère d'évolution. Une chose est sûre : elle ne compte pas dormir toute sa vie dans un "cercueil", ces couchettes ultra réduites où se serrent les pauvres. Quand un de ses riches clients lui propose un job risqué, elle ne peut pas refuser : c'est un défi bien payé.
    Mais elle ne se doute pas qu'elle prend part à une conspiration politique dont le but est de renverser le pouvoir sur Artémis, et de prendre le contrôle des 2000 âmes qui vivent sur la Lune...

  • Nominated as one of Americas best-loved novels by PBSs The Great American Read Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that hes alive--and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills--and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit--he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

  • PROJECT HAIL MARY Nouv.

    A lone astronaut must save the earth from disaster in this incredible new science-based thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Martian . Ryland Grace is the sole survivor on a desperate, last-chance mission--and if he fails, humanity and the earth itself will perish. Except that right now, he doesn''t know that. He can''t even remember his own name, let alone the nature of his assignment or how to complete it. All he knows is that he''s been asleep for a very, very long time. And he''s just been awakened to find himself millions of miles from home, with nothing but two corpses for company. His crewmates dead, his memories fuzzily returning, he realizes that an impossible task now confronts him. Alone on this tiny ship that''s been cobbled together by every government and space agency on the planet and hurled into the depths of space, it''s up to him to conquer an extinction-level threat to our species. And thanks to an unexpected ally, he just might have a chance. Part scientific mystery, part dazzling interstellar journey, Project Hail Mary is a tale of discovery, speculation, and survival to rival The Martian --while taking us to places it never dreamed of going.
