This was a joint project between Edinburgh Napier University, the University of Edinburgh, and the Edinburgh Futures Institute. I was introduced to experts in their field and ended up producing a short story in the anthology Scotland in Space. This project gave me the confidence to consider writing something more science-based than I had before.
