Just after sunset, Kendall and Katya took a walk up their favorite canyon, their last opportunity for two years.
“Can you believe we’ve come this far,” Kendall thought back to their graduate days. “To think that the research of two college students was taken seriously by so many.”
“And fought against by so many as well,” Katya reminded her husband and colleague.
“Yes, but just look at it, Katya!” Kendall turned and pointed across the skyline to the west. “It’s beautiful. A continuous stream of satellites orbiting Earth. And in two months, we’ll be riding her like a water skier on a smooth lake.”
“Da. The science will be phenomenal,” Katya said softly. “The view, incredible.”
