CAPE CANAVERAL, EARTH – Bob Busby, CEO of Spark, wants to make changes in the wake of a contagion attack on Cape Canaveral.

He wants to take the effort to achieve faster-than-light travel beyond Earth’s atmosphere to a secure facility in outer space.

The Spark board of directors is expected to approve a reassignment of assets to invest in the construction of an orbital laboratory and spacedock.

The move isn’t just a security issue due to the terrorist incident, however, he said. Busby also worries that technology needed to achieve FTL speeds might threaten the planet itself.

“Better safe than scattered atoms, man,” Busby said.
