The year is 2027. The world has become calm and committed through global policies made better through successful and responsible leadership. Even the most once-ardent skeptics acclaimed the shared cooperation among super powers and newly reinforced industrializing nations.
Under the dome of science and space exploration, the Theta Space Station Program, a six-nation partnership whose proposals and clandestine origins dates back to 2009, has been totally non-confrontational and successful beyond expectations. In High Earth Orbit, 1,461 miles above the Earth, the massive Theta Space Station’s structure and infrastructure has been assembled to an 80% completion through the multi-national, well-trained military and civilian astronauts who inhabited Theta I and Theta II.
The nine qualified astronauts in Theta III are to complete the space station’s infrastructure for Theta IV’s extended, extraordinary, life-sustaining five-year mission on schedule for launch in 2029. Theta III’s launch and supervision by the finest and most knowledgeable scientists and technicians on the planet is without peer. What could possibly go wrong?
