Something tells me Muffin is on an important journey, and he didn’t want company. Interesting!
I’m interested to see where this goes too. 🙂
Muffin’s back! I’m happy.
We aims ta please!
People are always so grumpy when they need their lives saved
I’m pretty grumpy at the moment. It’s actually a call for help.
I like that this is going somewhere. Very exciting!
Thanks Figgs! Something tells me that…oh, better not say. That would be spoiling.
I never realized that the Gloomy Grotto was in Portugal. 🙂
I apologize to all Portuguese if I inadvertantly implied that your country was gloomy, or in any way, shape, or form resembles a grotto. I have no doubt (based on substantial photographic evidence) that the opposite is far closer to the truth.
Love how you have them working in the back ground to get across as the dialogue rolls along.
I figured the dialog by itself would be pretty boring. Thanks Frank!
The equator’s the equator, but I assume Planet X’s prime meridian is wherever Ellie landed/impacted. So she’s traveled about a 40th of the way around the world.
She’s going MUCH faster than her Mars-probing forebearers! NASA would kill for an LE!
Hey Neutrino! The planet’s Prime Meridian is based off of some arbitrary point in photos taken from orbit and has no reference to Ellie’s landing spot at all. Her landing point (which she missed completely) was selected after her close scrutiny of the planet’s topography based on those photos. As far as the distance she’s covered so far,…even if it were a 40th of the way around the world, Planet X is pretty tiny. So though it’s an amazing achievement of science and engineering, it’s not quite as far as it might seem.
