Specialist astronaut Evelyn Slater encounters a badly damaged, ancient alien artefact on the first ever space junk elimination mission.
               
      A security clampdown is imposed by the USA, Russian and European governments. Evelyn leads a team of hand-picked scientists who make amazing discoveries within the alien device.
              
      Secrecy is impossible to maintain and she becomes embroiled in international politics as the existence of the Visitor is announced to the world.

Good opening chapter. Very believable. Felt like I was in the Soyuz with them. I think I spelled the name of the capsule/ship right.

Do the Russian cosmonauts also have to learn English?
                              It's hard to believe the U.S. now depends totally on Russia for travelling to the ISS

Good gracious -- it has been ages since I added this to my reading list. The fall break arrives in a few weeks here, so I will start my reading process then. Looking forward!

Aliens and space and politics oh my! ☺️ Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us this time @TonyHarmsworth!

This is why people love Sci-fi, the sense of pure unknown that you don't really get with other genres.
