Losing Dani Strumm
Dani was a natural in school. Her only distraction was an absent mother and her suicidal brother, whom she felt overly protective. Maybe because she assumed the role when her mother abandoned them, or perhaps it was just her nurturing way.
The mission was only possible once every 60 years because of the strange elliptical orbit of Tau Ceti e, which made it impossible to reach more than once in a person's lifetime. However, modern technology did allow humankind to get to the edge of the planet's orbit every 60 years for approximately three months. Dani aspired to travel this great distance to carry out this dangerous and previously failed mission. Unfortunately, the last mission team was never heard from after a scouting trip to the planet 60 years earlier.
Her job was a simple one. Release scientific orbital satellites around Tau Ceti e to gather important information for team two, which would form a landing and exploration party.
Dani would find herself scrambling for the emergency escape pod to flee a dying ship. Within minutes she would find herself on an alien planet with two weeks of supplies, two days of oxygen, injured, and her rescue nearly two months away.
