THE WAY UP, THE WAY DOWN

THE WAY UP, THE WAY DOWN

“Unlike most people, Charlie had a job. He lived on Earth and worked in space, and for his daily commute, he took the elevator. It went right up to Icarus Station on the orbital ring, 132 minutes for one trip, only a few hundred kilometers above the planet. Whenever one cage left from the Beehive on the ground, another descended at the same speed–and that one moment in the middle, when the two cages passed each other, was everything that Charlie was interested in anymore.”
