ISS Icarus

By Kayla Brosseau
On the edge of Earth’s orbit, the residents of the ISS Atlas prepare for mankind’s next great venture: colonizing Mars and beyond. Marcus Vella, the lucky winner of a ticket onboard, finds himself in the middle of a plan years in the making. All the while, Lunar Colony resident Carina Stridlen is moving forward with a plan of her own... getting out of orbit by any means necessary.
