Love to read but don't always have time to finish a long story? Here's a series of five minute Sci Fi stories to read anywhere and anytime.
        
 These are bite sized pieces meant to entertain you but they are based on real science and are also meant to make you think about how we use our scientific knowledge to change ourselves and the universe around us. 
        
 I published this collection on Amazon in August 2017. That means I can only keep a few of these stories up on Wattpad. I will rotate through them each week and will be adding new stories regularly. You can find the full collection on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074DTTGN6/ref=la_B074DXQ8BQ_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1501504236&sr=1-1

The only true immortality is in DNA. Every living thing is nothing but a means of advancing DNA into the future. Your story captures that beautifully!

Used to have little Tdogs on my screensaver never thought about their little space suit looking bodies secure the future of humanity. Brilliant!

Gotta love a bit of hard science and as usual it's up to the nerd to save the world (or the human race, anyway).

Aaaaand... fastforward 500,000 years. Hey! Look! That flower looks like Nick! And so does the bug pollinating it! Dayam! An entire planetary biosystem committing incest with itself!

                              Interesting twist on the prompt. I never would've thought to go this route, with the scientist prepping for the end of the world.
