Allie was the first child born on the Solar Wind, a spacecraft on a twenty-year mission to survey the asteroids for the United Nations. Nippon-American built the spacecraft and provided the crew. The UN provided the scientific staff from all over the world.
The staff and crew of the Solar Wind were expected to be sterile by the end of the voyage so they were required to leave ova and sperm deposits on earth for future use. Women will not be permitted to give birth to a child on the spacecraft and agree in writing to terminate any pregnancy.
This is Allie’s Adventure: How she came to be, why she was kept as the ship’s mascot, and became the first of thirty-five children secretly born on the Solar Wind.
