An excerpt from Maxwell Empire Book 1, Chapter 2.

SCOTT

What about that? It is huge.

SIMON

See all those blocks of ice. Having a temperature out there in the shade of lower than minus one hundred degrees Celsius means water is only in the form of ice.

SCOTT

But how many blocks? There look to be thousands of them.

SIMON

They add up to three thousand tonnes. So at a tonne each that is three thousand ice blocks.

SCOTT

Well, it doesn’t look like a spaceship from the stories we read as kids.

SIMON

It’s out of the atmosphere. It just has to have the bits hang together.

SCOTT

That is just right. Those blocks of ice are just strung together with cables.

SIMON

And then when it needs to put them in its fusion motor it just drags them over to it.

SCOTT

For a robot it is just plain huge.

SIMON

It says here that it will weigh six thousand tonnes and then there will be the extra three thousand tonnes of water making a total of nine thousand tonnes.
