Cold Equations (XMIN)

A young woman stows away aboard a ship that is dropping off crucial medicine on a remote planet. She must face the consequences of her actions when presented with the cold reality of fuel calculations.

This is the kind of story you rarely encounter anymore. I don't want to say anything that would lessen the story's impact, so just listen!

The Cold Equation appeared in the August 1954 issue of Astounding Science Fiction.
