Zvsky in Space

Jules Zvsky emigrated to the Moon the day of his 21st birthday. He hated Earth’s greasy air, muddy seas, and dirty soil. His dream had always been to move to a colony far from home. He was the first in the family to be granted a passport for a colony and the first one to leave Earth.

Jules married to a moon born officer, moved again to one of Venus moons and changed his planetarship. He never visited Earth or saw his parents again. Jules was the only child of Martha and Antony Zvsky and the end of the family tree. Eventually the Zvsky line died off in Earth.

That was the price of Jules’ dream, but not the end of the story.
