The Honeycomb Comet

by Roger B. White, Jr., copyright Jan 2004

Story One in the HX series

The year is 2132. Mankind is exploring and exploiting the solar system, but the process is still a slow one. Up until now, the exploration has been done with boost-and-coast rocket technology.

New things are being discovered, but John Burnmeshorts is going to go further and faster using a new propulsion technology, constant acceleration drive, and is going to find something very interesting... if his problem with a conniving relative back home doesn't torpedo his dreams.
