Finally! I passed my drivers test. It took me three tries which might sound like a lot although it’s really not. Well that and that it was for my space ship license. The only reason that I didn’t pass my first two times was because when I would reenter the atmosphere, I would reenter a little too shaky and things would get flung everywhere. My spaceship is a Boeing Spark. In the past, Boeing was an airplane company. Now it and many other companies switched from airplane only to spaceship making. Anyway, my spaceship is very economically efficient since I get 25,000 miles to the gallon. However i can only get up to 200,000 miles per hour maximum.
Well now that I have my license, I am going to a friends house on Mars, It’s not that far of a distance from Deimos since its a Martian moon. It’s a start to driving on my own which is why I’m making this venture. While entering the atmosphere of Mars, I start to notice that because I had taken my spaceship test on Earth, the thicker atmosphere had caused me to shake when entering. However, because of Mars’ thinner atmosphere, I didn’t shake when entering the atmosphere. As it turns out am having a very easy time getting to the planet of Mars. Landing however is going to be tricky.
The reason for this is that when humans colonized Mars around 200 years ago, they built biomes with which they could breathe and farm and create civilization. Thousands of these dot the martian landscape from space. The things are massive when you start getting close to them. I mean they have to be to allow for farming and house thousands of people. I have to park my Spark outside the biome in a parking lot like area where hundreds of others are parked as well. Entering the massive structure is something you don’t really expect when viewing it from the outside. Everywhere you look, there are people wondering the streets and outdoor vendors trying to sell you their products. Two and sometimes three story houses line the streets. I walked up to the one my friend lived in and we hung out for a couple of Martian hours. But, when I was about to leave, an alarm went off alerting everyone that a dust storm was approaching us. At this moment I think I’m just gonna go to the nearby coffee shop and wait out the storm. The storm sounded like an earth train blasting around the massive structure. The coffee was surprisingly good and I really enjoyed my stay. Leaving, the dirt still lingered in the Martian air which is going to make this harder to get back home than i had originally planned. The dirt in the air is really not a big problem, but it was an unforeseen obstacle. The reason is because I hadn’t seen the dust storm on the news. Now I’m just going to have to make some adjustments.
Exiting is turning out to be much easier than I thought. Nothing is going wrong, and all I have to do is make it to my house on Deimos. My house is inside an almost glass-like structure that contains oxygen. unlike the biomes on Mars, its only for one house and some farmland. I get back to my house and this time I have to deploy the landing gear. Everything is going better than expected, I can’t believe it. I put the key in the keyhole and look back at my spaceship one last time to see it rolling… I had forgot to put the brake on. I stop it, luckily before it left the moon. I walk back over to the door to my glass-like biome, put my key in the door, and then enter. I am finally home from a pretty much successful day of driving.
