An Orbit Away

my Life on Mars

Authored by Stacy L Rucker

Henry Billingsly is just an ordinary guy who wants to be extraordinary.  He knows no better way of rising to the challenge than being a part of a team going to Mars on a privately funded enterprise.  He's ecstatic to be accepted into the program, but there's one thing that makes him stand apart from the others on his team.  He has a wife and child.  With no promise of a return mission, he knows he may be saying goodbye forever.  Upon arriving, he sees that not only glory, but the basic necessities for living are difficult to come by.  His wife divorces him, his son's video messages are becoming less and less frequent, and he and the team are in constant fear for their lives. Not only does it look as if funding for the mission is running out, but they are afflicted by frequent quakes that jeopardize the security of their pods.  If the team doesn't find a more permanent way to secure the pods and get the greenhouse to start producing, their chances of survival are slim to none.  When Henry finds the prospect of true love on Mars, survival becomes all the more critical.
