The craft had finally left Earth, finally left the wasteland that the people had made it. And now it was in space.
The pilots plotted the craft to their first location whilst scientists focused on their work, examining samples, making sure everything they had done was correct. The craft flew past galaxies floating through the abyss like clouds of colourful smoke, stars lighting up the darkness which seemed to engulf them. The craft was a mixture of noises – machinery whirred whilst scientists chattered away to each other discussing everything from landing points for the craft to what sort of wildlife there would be, if any. Rich businessmen sat in luxurious rooms, paying millions of dollars just to be able to be the first to step on the new planet, and technicians always on hand to fix any problems.
Their destination was 180-XQ, a small planet located only 2.1 light years away from them. The atmosphere was perfect, the weather was slightly colder than usual, however humanity would be able to adapt to the climate quickly. Their only fear was a mysterious substance which seemed to float in the air – this substance was later found to be safe, and as the craft flew closer and closer to the planet all the staff on board had nothing but high hopes.
Finally, they could see it. A blur of greens and blues, far into the distance, a speck of colour filling in the black void around them. A new home.
Scientists rigged up their machines, using more advanced, newer technology to record the waves from the planet as they approached, learning more about the environment, the landscape, the creatures who live down below. The sounds you are about to listen to were these recordings – it is your job to find out whether or not this planet is safe to land on, whether or not humanity will be able to thrive or if it will perish, yet again.
The fate of the world is in your hands.
