Pets in Space…the numbers tell the story, well, some of it :-) #PetsInSpace #Scifirom

I don’t know about you, but I love those magazine By the Numbers articles presenting statistics to shed light on an issue or a project. I find that kind of data fascinating. You may know I’ve written a story for Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2, a science fiction romance anthology. I decided to compile some facts and statistics.
