Color by George Peterson.

Freefall in color by many folks.


Gregor: I looked at your manifest. The polywell reactor is being sold to robots?
Florence: Yes. They want to cyberform a moon near the gas giant.
Gregor: Frozen balls of rock and ice. I do not see the attraction.
Florence: Cold is a resource. Many industrial processes are limited by how fast they can get rid of heat.
Florence: We like to live in hot oxidizing atmospheres where corrosive liquid falls from the sky. Robots like cold, dry, inert atmospheres. I see this as a good thing for us living together. We each have very different ideas about what is prime real estate.
