Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir

ALMOST as good as The Martian (2011).

… unforgettable story of survival and the power of friendship …

Project Hail Mary is a 2021 science fiction novel by Andy Weir.  …

 Set in the near future, the novel centers on middle school-teacher-turned-astronaut Ryland Grace, who wakes up from a coma afflicted with amnesia.

He gradually remembers that he was sent to the Tau Ceti solar system, 12 light-years from Earth, to find a means of reversing a solar dimming event that could cause the extinction of humanity. …

Ryan Gosling plans to star as Grace in the film adaptation.

What I like best about Weir is his ability to make arcane science entertaining and interesting.
