It is 1965 and Ginny Eckhardt is a science fiction writer. She’s been published in the big science fiction magazines and is friends with many of the popular science fiction authors of the day. Her husband, Walden, has just been selected by NASA as one of the New Nineteen Apollo astronauts...which means Ginny will be a member of the Astronaut Wives Club.

Although the realities of spaceflight fascinate Ginny, her genders bars her from the United States space programme. Her science fiction offers little in the way of consolation — but perhaps there is something she can do about that...

Covering the years 1965 to 1972, when Walden Eckhardt lifts off aboard Apollo 15 as the mission’s lunar module pilot, this is Ginny’s life: wife, science fiction writer, astronaut wife...because that is All That Outer Space Allows.
