High Above The Earth

I couldn’t trust the targeting computer to take the shot, just in case they missed. If I missed, I could hate myself, I’d been doing that forever, but I needed to have faith in my tools, even if that meant, for this one time, I had to not use them.

So instead I flew out to the belt myself, and chose the best asteroid for the job, and spent several hours going over the numbers before I finally turned on the solar engine.

It was the tensest week of my life, until it finally landed, setting off the extinction event.
