Commander Vitaly Prussov 'n his
assistant Nataly Tsuverkalova.
We began our flight from aerodrome
"The New Planet". As then we removed from the Earth, we dived into a sky
deeper and deeper. Blue, grey and white clouds flashed past us, but
they were getting dark gradually and? we understood that we were in space.
We saw immense red-hot spheres, liked
suns, in illuminator of our spaceship. Some spheres were blue, other were
red, yellow and of other colors. Some were of immense size,
other were smaller. They were stars. We guided by their combinations (constellations)
in the way. And we saw the biggest and brightest star in our Galaxy. It
were the Sun. We saw our Earth, Mars, Mercury, and planets-giants,
such as Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and other.
Jupiter has an unique brightly-red
with yellow color, which blinded us while we were flowing pass. Numerous,
motley rings of the Saturn impressed us. Saturn has only four rings, but
great number of color-changes makes an impression of big amount of them.
Also we saw a comet. It was a magnificent occurrence. The comet had a big
splendid train. The train of a comet usually consists of stardust, many
gases, and very little asteroids.
Our spaceship repeatedly hitted into the asteroid's rain. And our spaceship
endured this ordeal with credit. Our spaceship is unordinary. It was constructed
especially for our flight. Our spaceship looks like as a large ring, having
a scale of about half of kilometers. Command deck and engines are situated
in the center of this ring. A control of all systems is having a place
Our engines were constructed by the Einstein's principle. Engines transform
space junk, stardust and small asteroids into the energy of photons. When
our spaceship flying, a long, fluorescent stream is seeing, and our spaceship
There is not imponderability in our ship, because our "mushroom" is rotating.
The outward ring consists of four decks: laboratory, recreation, hydroponics
and life deck.
Two men must be on duty in control deck. They must verify course and watch
on situation outside ship. We are on duty in turn.
Maybe it will be interesting to you to
read a story that happened with us on one planet. It's name is
In the watch of Andrew an extraordinary event was happened. He detected
a planet in the system of Khaleb star, though it can't be there theoretically.
Because of this fact all crew gathered in a watch module. The
planet on the screens quickly grew and approached?
were very few clouds, and we saw the beautiful sphere. Light-blue
water limited green contours of two continents. There were many forests,
hills and meadows. Even mountains were in the southern part of fewer continents.
It was decided to explore it in turns: two men went to the planet to spend
a week where they had chosen. Each pair hoped that something
would happen in their turn. And it happened?
It happened during the third week after Natalie and Alexey
had gone to the planet. They had chosen a place near mountains. Going on
the forest, Alex noticed a road. Alex called Natalie and they went
by this road. The way led them to a wooden house. Somebody hacked
firewood near it. When he saw them, he ran to the house. "Maybe,
he was frightened by us" - said Alex, but a stranger came back. "It's interesting,
if he would understand us?". "I don't know" - replied Natalie,
but this situation
In the ship the crew met them warmly. Having rested the stranger told them
"There are nobody except me. I'm alone. But why? When I had finished my
institute, I had to defend my diploma work. I descanted in the caves for
three month. I lived in the depth of three hundred meters. One day a
landslip closed the only exit I knew. I was searching the way for
many years, but when I found it? Ruins. I see them every night. There
was nobody on the surface? It was many years ago. I am growing old slowly.
My name is Clody. You have to decide,
if you take me with you or not."
We decide unanimously to take him with
ourselves and we going farther, into the Search?
The planet Upsilon was on our
way. Many people tried to research it. We were interested in this planet,
because we read a journal by one of the explorers of this planet.
We decided to continue his research. We knew, that two
races on Upsilon have been fighting for many hundred years.
We took patterns
of the soil and atmosphere. Biosphere on Upsilon is very old and
it is broken. We decided to land on it. We found an old war- ravaged
town and we divided into three couples. In some hours we got together,
but Andrew and Ann were absent. We tried to communcate with them, but a
signal was absent. We linked with our capitan Vitaly
, and he commanded to come back to our ship. We decided to
send scouts to their meeting. They found out, that
Andrew and Ann were in captivit
The war was stopped
for time of the negotiations. On the negotiations men and dolphins
concluded a treaty. We left Upsilon with Andrew and Ann and we believed,
that the peace on Upsilon will last for many
trillions of years.
We want to propose you one more
version. If we could speak the language of
these two peoples, we could explain them what the
war did on our home planet "the Earth", how many people were killed
because of war conflicts. If our culture is closed to the people
of Upsilon, we could give the meaning of the words about war
using pictures, photoes etc.
But, as they live on a planet situated
outside our Solar System, they live in the conditions which differ
from those the Earth people live in.Their culture differs
from our culture and they understand neither our
words nor our idea about life and peace.
That's why we couldn't explain them anything
in telling it or in explaing it in a picture.
We could propose our way of reconciliation
of these two nations. It is necessary to take two persons from different
nations to the Earth (on to another planet) put them in the
conditions where they can't exist without the help of each other.
Thanks to that they will see each other every day, they have
to help each other to survive. It is difficult to communicate
with each other if they have to help each other (to protect
themselves). They could understand each other because on the Earth
It is clear that we have much time
(a month or a year) but step by step they begin to understand
each other, their positions and the hostility between them disapear.
We hope it so much.
