THE RETURN TRIP – Episode 2

…This baby is the most impressive space station ever!” Sampson is beaming like a father bragging on his newborn son from outside the nursery window…

For Sampson and Celeste McKinney, this is a proud moment, one that makes their 8 month  journey to this space-place worth every blasted boring minute. Here in the year 2030, a decade of secrecy has come to an end.

“Would you look at those lights Celeste? This baby is the most impressive space station ever!” Sampson is beaming like a father bragging on his newborn son from outside the nursery window, amongst the other proud papas.

“You (me) AND 8 billion of our closest friends,” he shrugs off his wife’s oversight. After all, for these 255 days, it seemed that they are the only two people in the Universe. “It won’t be long and hundreds of people will be on their way to Space Colony 1; them and every alien species that happens by.”

Curiosity

“Poor little Curiosity has been looking for a break.” Celeste looks back at other Mars projects over the years. That American product has paved the way for colonization, with the discoveries of hydraulic {water} and O2 {oxygen} reserves in the subsoil.

“And ExoMars was a bust, generally wasting time and resources that only slowed down Colony’s development.”

Indeed his hopes for the orbiting colony’s success are glossy, but not totally unrealistic. Considering that there will be a permanent on the Martian surface soon, his estimates could be on the low side. In fact, if every person who applied for colonist status gets his/her wishes, Mars will be a thriving planet-world, complete with its own democratic government and a United States-style melting pot of Earth nationalities; with no anti-imperialist, fascist, communist or Islamic factions to stand in the way.
