Darkest Days

Mars2037: A massive dust storm plunges the only human settlement on Mars into darkness for months. EVAs on the surface are out of the question for obvious safety reasons, and due to the interrupted work on power upgrades, it’s not long before power has to be carefully rationed for everyone to survive. One casualty of the power cuts is the greenhouse, leaving Paul Richardson nothing to do but worry over his dying crops. Base lighting and heat are next, and cabin fever begins setting in. Someone will have to venture outside to reconnect the base to power…while someone else will venture outside just to end it all.
