I watch as the spaceship takes flight. It’s silent and quick, more like a bird than any kind of old rocket. Alpha Centauri will be getting a new load of colonists soon.

She nods, bouncing on her heels. She reads about oceans like fairy tales. All those fish, whales, and water must have been amazing to see. But the Exhibit has the largest oceanic remnant in the world— 4,000 square miles of real ocean salt water of what was once called the Atlantic.
While it’s all cool that space travel could explore other planets and stuff, if Earth is all incinerated, it probably won’t matter a whole lot. Unless the spaceships found a giant water planet! How a huge planet-sized ball of water exists in space, I have no idea. We should probably just not evaporate all the oceans. That’ll work, too.
Good luck, you brave writer folk!
