His engines still worked though.

He increased his acceleration.

    I was just reading about a possible future “Carrington Event” and now I find your story that covers some of the effects of a geomagnetic solar storm. An interesting take on the prompt!

  4. Gritty and determined, I hope his cause was worth it! Great writing!
