It crackled and spit like a fallen power line until it stabilized and settled into a loud hum. It worked well, and protected him from just about everything that fell out of the sky, but it was a very unsettling way to start any excursion outside the confines of a building. Satisfied that the force field would not fail him, he signaled the door to open and drove out through the shield that kept the building safe from meteors while preventing the air from escaping into the vacuum of the moon’s barren wasteland.
