Chapter 1: Last Words
I spent most of my life on the Kepler Mission. Now I'm 41 years old crippled man who occasionally talks to recording device and probably this is my last log.
After I graduated from a collage I applied to Kepler Mission as a quantum driver engineer. I worked on high-tech quantum drives which provides unique power for interstellar ships. One day I was testing the new upgrade software and suddenly driver start to overload and blew up. I didn't took any severe damage from the blast but after a few days later everything went bad. When I spoke to doctor he couldn't give me any explicable reason despite all the explicit symptoms.
Now I'm half paralyzed and my family is worried about me. Doctors are offered me 2 options. Either I can wait for my death or they can put me in a DSC (Deep Sleep Cell) in order to survive for 12 decades. Should I say goodbye to my wife, my son and their future? How long I can survive without taking the second option? A year? Maybe less than a year?
My grandfather died after his 118th. birthday. Avarage life expectancy is over hundred and most likely I won't see my 42nd. birthday. Anyways I suppose I shouldn't overthink that dying thing. Numbers can't describe how I lived and how I feel. I'm just hoping that my family won't judge my decision. Either way, I won't left behind them...I can not.
