Two at once, not good

Okay two different readers on different sites, who critiqued the same story for me both seem to have forgotten that not all SF has to be hard. One thought that unless I use exactly what scientists say today, I should call it space fantasy. Another one thought the opening would make readers think the story was hard SF.

Ugh...while it's possible the person who commented on the opening was right the other two must not have read that many SF stories. SF writers have been making up events, happenings, objects in space for least decades. Sometimes they have used the latest science to try to justify it--or used tech babble- while others didn't even do that.
