1993-11stand-alone Short Story
Bridging the Galaxies

Larry Niven;
Charles Dickens
written for an anthology called The Midnight Miracle, edited by Jerry Biederman and Christopher Owens.

Larry Niven and Charles Dickens (!) discuss the importance of space exploration. This story has a similar theme to the Draco Tavern story "Ssoroghod's People," reminding us that dangerous experiments with weapons, viruses or genetically tailored crops should take place on the moon, not in Earth's fragile biosphere.
