NEW Story: The Fountain
Going to the moon is a big deal and you dress up for it.
Travel to the moon is a whole process — you have to fly to the astroport on Ascension, attend the flight briefing and have a medical checkup. Eventually, Tzipora and Baron are on Commonwealth Starlines Flight 1 to the moon.
Although the timing coincided with Tzipora’s birthday, you can’t time a trip to the moon. There are only about sixty slots a day and there’s a two-year wait.
With some patience and luck, however, any Vekllei citizen can visit space, a special privilege of their society.
