21 Outward Bound by Mark Randall

A story in the Asteroid Hunters Universe
This is the story of the 'Seward's Folly,' just returned from an expedition to the belt. It is about the preparations they make for their next trip. This will be different from any other trip to the belt. They are heading towards the far side of the belt. Virgin, uncharted territory. This story can be read by itself. But I recommend that you at least read 'Mosley Station' first.
