Calculating Apple Pie

by Melissa Keil

The nitrogen in our DNA, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies, was made in collapsing stars. We are made of star stuff. Kal and her sister Arche are hurtling through space toward Callisto in a ship shaped like a beluga whale that is the size of a city block. Arche does something a bit (very!) reckless to try to help her sister feel a little less homesick. Calculating Apple Pie explores future food production and coding and how tampering with it can cause serious real-world problems.
