# Seul sur Mars
What is document about ? The subject of the essay is to analyse an SF oeuvre and
its relation to Science. What are the *novums* introduce by the author ? What is
corresponding to our current scientific knowledge. At least, it is how I understood it.
This essay will be evaluated by 5 peers and there is some constraints :
- less then 5000 characters,
- 2 parts, one on science representations in the oeuvre and one in their role in the story,
- clear expression,
- use of knowledge on science and science fiction.
5000 characters is really short and I could have done more of course.
At this point, it is 4600 characters (3500 without the bibliography).
I'm quite happy with the bibliography and it usage.

I'm less happy with the conclusion. I delivered as it is presented here but I
could have redacted it a bit more. I'm not sure that the 2 parts are clearly
identified and that they are balanced but that, it is not me to judge.
