Email from the Moon, Orbital Lab I, Fiction

Dear Laura:

Just a quick note.

Looks like I will be going up to the company’s lunar orbital lab after all. I was on the reserve team, which only goes up if crystal production exceeds projections. It is, so we are.

I’ll be catching the first shuttle tomorrow morning. Weightlessness, here I come.

Ironic that we will be surrounded by so much advanced technology to keep us alive, yet crystal finishing can only be done by the human hand. The first company to automate the process will make a mint. Even more of a mint than crystals already are.

Now, off to figure out how to cram all my stuff into my personal mass allowance. Where did it all come from?

Yours from multiple locations in space,
