"H2LiftShips, a tech manual for a future”
Imagine a world, exactly like ours, but different
This can be considered an anti-dystopian story, not one that assumes a prior societal breakdown, but just a twist on where we could be if we tried something different. To tie it to one specific event is to limit the scope and growth of the story and its society.
A bit of science, some future fiction, dogs, simians and an octopus. Humans are also in the mix, but who really cares about them?
The story starts with a look at Sol’s inhabitants living on its many rocks and using Solar Sail empowered space ships. We explore the structure and problems of that environment. Future past history shows how this society came into existence and their path forward.
The second part, “H2LiftShips, the journey,” has our protagonists, Jack and Tang, working with a boost crew to cross the empty divide between two H2LiftShips just beyond Earth’s space before space.
We look at the design and functionality of the H2LiftShips, how the crews interact and introduce the roles and actions of senior crew members.
The Journey ends with a trip across the desert and tasty carne asada burritos.
