On a rainy day which had canceled out a glider training flight, the time was spent investigating an odd rectangle in the desert vegetation off the edge of an old runway. What they found there brought memories of WWII-era tale that enlivened nights around the campfire at the ranch long ago.

Meet the Author

Jim is partially retired from a career mainly in hands-on electronics development, and is a hobbyist-enthusiast creator of some advanced space transportation integrated concepts with applications, such as Centristation and the kinetic-centrifugal supported KESTS to GEO hoop-shaped transportation structure between equatorial ground and GEO, that he has presented and had published as part of high tech space conferences; but found that aerospace has snubbed it all due to its own laid out plans for space development based on privatizing conventional rocket launch systems; so he has also written his concepts as background for his high-tech science fiction adventure novels and short stories, which is more fun than writing technical papers, anyway. Now lives frugally in Ephrata, WA, USA, with two parakeets and a computer, still doing volunteer work; having done his best despite a mostly thankless humanity. Horse to water and all that.

The author had a hint of an idea and deserves some credit for their attempt. Needs more polish and plot development. A reason why it mattered today would help a lot: maybe some solution to an unsolved murder or stolen nazi gold. Hard for me to believe pinpoint of navigation. Fair buildup, background plausible (for fiction), but it never went anywhere I cared about. Maybe recast it into a period piece; alternative history maybe?

Not bad, but the instrument is a sextant, not an astrolabe.

Short story. The concept was good but the execution missed the mark.
