Featured Story - Cold Equations
Our featured story is a fascinating bit of science fiction. If you are familiar with the first space flights of the 1950’s you know just how important fuel conservation was. You were allowed so many burn-cycles before the mission was a failure. But what if the mission only allowed for failure? What if there was only enough fuel for one outcome and hundreds of lives depended on it? That is the premise of the tale Cold Equations. It first aired on X-Minus One in August of 1955.
Other Stories Include - Blood On My Hands, Review - The Downloaded, Why are you just standing there, That’s My Name, Cold Equations, and Johnny Is It True - Santiago
