Voyage to the Planets and Beyond

This "hard science fiction" depicts a 6 year long planetary tour by an international team of astronauts.

Unfortunately, intelligent speculation and scrupulous attention to detail are ruined by repeated depictions of instantaneous radio communications between Mission Control and the magnificently detailed Pegasus space ship as it tours the planets.

You'd think that someone had finally figured out to make radio waves travel faster than light!
