‘The SpaceX Accident’ By Z. Alexa

It’s the year 2030, November 6, 2030, to be exact. The SpaceX program released the list of accepted participants in their “Race To Space” program and everyone was on edge. Millions applied, but only five would be chosen. The application process was rigorous, consisting of a triple background check, multiple interviews, a CV, a 1-page Statement of Purpose, and a month-long training program, and took months to complete. The winners were emailed with specific instructions on what to do next as well as congratulations on being accepted into the program. Then things took a turn for the worst. This is Jasmine’s story.
