What is Junction Point, some may ask?
It is a hard science fiction web serial, dealing with exploration and first contact. The multinational crew of the Odysseus embarks on humanity’s first interstellar mission, in order to find the source of radio signals that had been directed to Earth from Kapteyn’s Star. The story is told from the viewpoint of the contact specialist, Liu Haipeng, though there will also be occasional excerpts from other perspectives.
The science will remain as hard as I can manage it, though there are always small liberties taken here and there. Updates are every Wednesday and Saturday.
