SUMMARY: 1994: The Betty Crocker conglomerate invites Dr. Jade English, celebrated astrophysicist and CEO of Skaianet Technologies, to teach one year of classes at their first foray into private education, Marjorie Husted University in Houston, Texas. Jade says yes.
EXCERPT: They’d meant the invitation as a sock to the face. Marjorie Husted University, the shiniest new private university in Houston, already fully accredited, would be greatly honored to have an eminent physicist and innovator in the space field blah blah blah words. Hey, Dr. English, America’s favorite—or most infamous, anyway—octogenarian multimillionaire inventor businesswoman smartypants. Come teach a year of classes as a visiting professor to Texas’s freshest crop of wannabe astronauts! We’re so close to NASA headquarters, after all. We’d love to have you. It’ll be fun.
And it would have been. Jade wouldn’t call herself the teaching type, but she was eighty-four years old and could use a change from the everyday humdrum of reinventing science and running her competitors into the ground. Even her regular jaunts to Bengal (the People’s Republic of Bangladesh now, she reminded herself—had been reminding herself since 1947) to study and enjoy the familiar, fertile fields off the Ganges had felt a little…dry. Wrangling freshmen could be the perfect sabbatical, she thought.
