Gordon Rupert Dickson : sciencie fiction author
"A six-nation join project to put a team of men on Mars is about to come to fruition. Jens Wylie, Undersecretary fror the Development of Space, tries to warn the powers that be that the astronauts are overscheduled and is ignored. A low level engineer tries to warn of a worrying increase in problems in the twin space- craft's laser communication systems and is ignored on the grounds that while problems increased, they are well within spec. Gervais, an Air Force Intel type is keeping an eye on Jens, among other people, and is increasingly unhappy with a colleague's inability to do his job."
