Description: Written like a group of journal entries, this story take you through 25 years of a space mission to Mars. Written by one of the astronauts, she describes the life threatening issues and their endurance of finally making it back to Earth.

Summary: A group of astronauts are on a mission to Mars to try and create a new, liveable world. They set up systems and modules on the planet that were supposed to help create life and plantation. Unfortunately, there was a huge dust storm that cloged the system and everything went into failure and the whole operations system exploded. Now the crew must try and survive long enough on board their ship to make it back to Earth. After 25 years, they finally approach Earth and return back to civilization.

Excerpt: At Union last week, Beth and Chris announced that they were engaged. Commander Campbell ordered that the last of the chocolate pudding be served and joked that he was saving the ice cream for the birth of the first child in space. At least I think he was joking.
