Returning home is always a joy. Yesterday as we approached the Earth we passed over the Moon with the Sagittarius sector in the distance, the far distance. Our trip from the Europa colony was fast, just three days of riding in on the solar magnetic field lines. Despite the terraforming of Mars and the subterranean ocean fisheries of Europa there is no place like Earth. Mars is still largely a desert and being under 10 km of ice on Europa you see nothing but the glow of bioluminescence. Only Earth has the greens and blues of verdant life and liquid water. Home sweet home. At least that is the feeling humans programmed into me a thousand years ago.
