Ian and Jack Talley and the Prometheus Space Program set a record for the fastest manned
flight to Jupiter. But the journey ended in disaster, crippling Jack and killing the rest of the crew.
Ten years later, an eccentric multi-billionaire offers them all his money, and a second chance, if they'll fly him to Pluto. But they must decide whether they are making history, or repeating it.
Ian and Jack Talley and the Prometheus Space Program set a record for the fastest manned flight to Jupiter. But the journey ended in disaster, crippling Jack and killing the rest of the crew.
Ten years later, an eccentric multi-billionaire offers them all of his money, and a second chance, if they'll fly him to Pluto. The Talley brothers reunite their team, ready to rekindle the dream of manned space flight. But self-doubts and technological issues both old and new appear, leaving the question open: are they making history? Or repeating it? And finding the answers could cost them far more than the Prometheus program.
This is a near future, hard science fiction novella.
