The Martian - Andy Weir

I have four books due in the next three or so days, so I really shouldn't be reading this right now. But this bit made me laugh:

 

"We can rescue him with Ares 4. It's very risky. We ran the idea by the Ares 4 crew. Not only are they willing to do it, but now they're really pushing hard for it."

 

"Naturally," Teddy said. "Astronauts are inherently insane. And really noble."

 

Thank goodness for people willing to do the kind of things that would make the rest of us go catatonic with fear, right?
