Future You Future You

She’d sacrificed a lot to be here.

Everything, in fact.

Shang travelled to Callisto on the Hohmann transfer from Earth, which took almost six years. She sacrificed everything for the chance to explore distant moons for resources and critical minerals, but she gets paired with a Drobo called Semper that always wants to play, like a real dog. Shang doesn’t have time for games, so why was she paired with such a useless Drobo?

Semper explores robotics, AI and mineral exploration.

Semper made everyone smile, except Shang.
