Good Morning, Midnight: A Novel - Lily Brooks-Dalton

Sully and her colleagues had become the first human beings to delve this deep into space, but more than that: Jupiter and her moons had changed them. Soothed them. Shown them how tiny, how exquisite, how inconsequential they really were. It was as though the six members of Aether's crew had been awakened from the small, insignificant dreams that constituted life on Earth. They could no longer relate to their own history, their own memories. When they arrived at Jupiter, an unfamiliar layer of their consciousness overflowed. It was as if they light had been turned on in a dark room and revealed infinity, sitting naked and glorious beneath the swinging bulb.
