Toasted Cake 255: Unwrapping the Moon by Curtis C. Chen

Toasted Cake #255! In which we make breathable air.

It wasn't a new idea. But as soon as mother said out loud "we should wrap the Moon"--so close, so dead, but with resources hidden under dust and rock--father and his scientists started figuring out how to do it.

This story is original to Toasted Cake.

Once a Silicon Valley software engineer, Curtis C. Chen now writes speculative fiction and runs puzzle games near Portland, Oregon.
