Eighteen year old Piper is one of four selected to colonize Mars. Facing a seven month, one-way flight, her crewmates discover that pregnancy in space is possible. Locked in a cramped space with zero privacy, they must all overcome their differences to navigate life and death decisions together. Piper's personal challenge will be to learn to trust the people as much as the technology.

I imagine young is a bonus in colonizing a world in and of itself, especially for a female.

Sleeping in a drain pipe - what a great way to practice. ANd I agree the old Total Recall is the one to watch. I started reading with your Part 2 - I definitely plan to come back here

This is so cool because it's actually real! Well, Mars One that is. :)
