Exodus from Mars
Too Long; Didn't ReadA man named Akeyo Ochenge lives on Mars in a Green Mars Project agricultural station. Mars has a population of 2.5 billion, but its food production cannot keep up with its needs, so Earth pumps in more people. Akeyo is sterile, as are all colonists. A large spaceship called the Exodus is being constructed to travel to distant stars, and Akeyo has been accepted as a colonist if he passes the physical requirements and training. He is to report to the recruiting office in Muskville in 42 hours.
