Jaclin groaned and stood up from her wrecked ship. The front of it was buried deep in the dirt.
“Now I’ll never get back home.” She sighed.
Jaclin stepped tentatively out of her ship and stared into the forest. A few bushes rustled. A deer scampered into the clearing with her, then ran off. A wolf chased close behind.
The sun glinted against something and Jaclin squinted through the trees at it...
Lizzie’s heart pounded in her chest as she struggled to regain her bearings. The crash had been sudden and unexpected, leaving her disoriented and surrounded by the wreckage of her spaceship. She looked around, her eyes widening in disbelief as she took in the lush landscape of the unknown planet.
“Daniel, are you okay?” Lizzie called out, her voice trembling with a mixture of fear and excitement...
Sometimes I wonder,
If I’ve been silent for so long,
That I’ve forgotten how to speak
And if I’m in the mirror,
Watching my own life,
In the same world but detached from everything.
Alone from everyone.
I’ve become quite the introspective girl in these past months.
How do I relate to anything?
What is my place in the world?
I’m trying to learn.
I spend everyday learning,
Everything is dark.
The last thing I remember is a flashing light, and a loud BANG!
I look to my left and move the fingers on my hand.
I’m still alive.
I think everything is okay.
Luckily, the trees helped cushion the impact and slowed our speed before plummeting into the surface.
Our crew is 6.
I look around and everyone is accounted for in their hyper sleep chambers. Vitals appear to be n...
“Houston be aware - I’m coming in hot.”
“Roger that, Zenith One. We expected this. Brace for a bumpy landing.”
I braced all I could in the coffin-like pod, bunching my fists and screwing my eyes tight. Thoughts of Emily popped into my head, the way when she smiled at me she always gave me a little wink, something I’d never seen her do to anyone else. I couldn’t wait to see her. I had only been a...
ASHLEY’S SPACE JOURNAL
October 1, 2043
I wasn’t expecting that my first entry would be describing a terrifying crash rather than a safe landing, but here we are. The goal of this solo trip was simply to arrive on Mars and snap some photos, but inexplicably my ship crashed when I was only about halfway there. To my immense gratitude, I ended up crashing not into an asteroid or comet but another ...
Every muscle hurt. The memory of pain, incredible pain, rattled my clearly broken bones. Dry yet sticky my lips were stuck together. A cool sweet flavored towel patted my lips. Sweet relief. Slowly I opened my eyes. The Centauria were waiting.
Proxima Centauri b, earth’s closest M planet, was four light years away and the most like home. Nearly eighty percent water, this was an island planet. O...
“Beeeeeeeeep” The door to my spacecraft slid open and the only thing in sight was… green. The ground was bright green and the sky was blue, everything was off to a great start. Then I noticed, the only living things there was animals. All the cats and dogs you could imagine were there; no humans in sight except for myself....
The sound of a loud hiss reeled me into consciousness. I inhaled and winced as a sharp pain shot through my ribs. The smell of burnt rubber filled my lungs causing me to cough.
My ribs screamed in protest. I groaned in response to the pain and peeled my eyes open. Darkness engulfed every one of my senses. My body started to wake up, responding to all of the things that were hurting it.
