Being a scientist and engineer, I enjoy adding as realistic elements as possible to my stories. For example, I wrote this article to discuss the science and technology that I referenced in writing the story Morgan’s Road.
There are certainly some spoilers in that article. If you haven’t read Morgan’s Road, now is the time:

Among other things, Nils Carmike is a story teller. This is something his friend Milton finds ridiculous. This provides the backdrop for Thunder Moon Tussle by Torn MacAlester

Making a living on the Moon is not for everyone, but Nelson Carmike actually preferred the airless basalt plains over Earth’s windy prairies.
Unfortunately, three years of Moon prospecting left him penniless, and without funds for supplies he was doomed to face a forced flight home. Out of options, Nelson had all but given up until a prospector, presumed dead for twenty years, arrives on his doorstep with a secret.
Can Nelson figure out how the man survived on his own, and learn to do the same before his supplies out?

My short story Morgan’s Road acts as a prequel to the remainder of my current stories including my novel Thunder Moon Tussle. I wrote the story itself to romanticize the actual science results from LCROSS. You can see the science behind the story in article The Science of Torn MacAlester’s Morgan’s Road.
