Light years away getting ready to head out to reach the great unknown planet that will take me and my crew a week to get there and build our space jump bridge to transport humans. Scientist took years to find this mysterious planet that is sustainable to with hold our living condition. As earth is starting to die with out any hope of it self healing people starting to become weak as my duty as caption alex my duty is to lead the people of this world to a new beginning. I walk round the space ship thinking to my self if I can make it in time before everone is dead. My wife lindsey finds me wondering to my self “ alex I love you if you get there or not I will always love you”. Staring at her eyes knowing just in a few moments of taking of from this planet to space as scientist to question them selfs why our planet is dying as its life on it oxygen starts to become poison we are the peoples only hope. People glance at the ship with hope that these men and women on bored will be there savers. With the most advanced technology and the ability to build a jump bridge to earth to this new planet. My crew as jack on communication getting the count down ready, my engineer Cynthia checking the engines for any errors. Count down start my heart beat increases, my hands shake of being scared.
