Alexis stepped out of the Infinite Probability Drive and onto the Moon’s surface. It was desolate, untouched by human activity. He’d scanned the surface from the capsule before exiting and knew there was nothing, no living creature as far as the scanners could reach in every direction. He’d stepped out only to emulate that ‘first step for a man’ moment he’d watched so often when he was a child.
It was a sobering thought. He’d set the probability drive to 99.9% recurring, as close to 100% as it was possible to be but in this parallel universe, the Institute had never arrived on the Moon. The probabilities of it happening were that small. Somewhere in the past hundred years, something hadn’t lined up and this alternate eventuality had happened. Did that mean at every other setting from 0 to 99.9 the Institute didn’t reach the Moon or was it just this probability? There was so much to learn but it couldn’t be learned here. He needed to return to the world he was familiar with and figure out his next steps.
