By Mary Lynn Bushong
1 The shuttle bounced and jostled its passengers as it entered Earth's atmosphere. Jason kept his face glued to the small side window as they glided toward Earth. He'd made this trip only once before, but he hadn't had a window seat that time.
2 He'd been born in the lunar colony, and his first visit to the Earth had been several months ago. That was when his family had come down to visit his cousins in the PHC, an oceanic colony.
3 Instead of looking through the heavy transparent domes to the lifeless landscape of the moon, he'd looked out his window in the Permanent Human Colony, or PHC, at the ocean. Instead of a static landscape, the ocean view was constantly changing.
4 The shuttle slowly reduced altitude, and landforms became visible, followed by cities and the ocean waves. For just a few moments, Jason saw a sight that made him catch his breath. Colors arched up into the sky in a display that his teacher had once described. He'd never seen one before. It must be a rainbow.
5 The transition from land to ocean was quick. The PHC was in relatively shallow water.
