Mona as a Space Vessel Captain’s Apprentice spent several years in near earth orbit doing maneuvers with simulated and real asteroids. Her training was to allow her to assume the control of the largest two-mile-long asteroid mining machine. It will be the fastest, and most advanced Mother Ship in the Earth’s fleet. There are thirteen other such ships in operation. They were assembled in low earth orbit at one of the human habitats circling the Earth. These habitats are six in number and took one thousand years to build and is home for five hundred thousand souls. These structures are visual reminders of man’s advanced culture and cooperation. They hang in the sky above the horizon and seem to have always been there. Two can be seen from SpaceJump City, the place Mona lives when not in space.
