It looked like a traveling penitentiary, a space grave to the onlookers; a hefty bulky projectile for the most part, as if it was shot from a cannon, a hundred-thousand years past; rustic and ancient with a technology unknown to scientists on earth. It was under observation for one hundred years. The first year there were lights on, inside it, so the records read on earth’s daily log. In the projectile were two bodies. Obviously, they’d perished in there and that was that; and thus, world left it flow within its nestled orbit around the planet’s moon, as it had fallen into it, one-hundred years until this time; this was kind of a present to the ancient astronauts within the tomb one might say. As I mentioned before, it’d been orbiting for one hundred-years, and the telescope that was monitoring it was high. And after such a time, interest, of over a billion earthlings had considered this bullet shaped tomb, like their stray cat, today found and being taken care of.
This projectile had been watched from world by a gigantic telescope; the job was called, “Project Space Tomb.” And there were three scientist involved. One from America, Tom Macare, one from Peru, Toño Guedes (head of the Observatory, although Tom, whom got the funding from American businessmen, believed he was the manager most of the time, and therefore, fought with the Peruvian), and Milam Thomas, from England, whom was partly Welsh, so he maintained, was the person who appeared to be putting out the spats between the three, notably Tom and Toño. It was data collecting of its motions, an ongoing research project and chemical make-up, along with metal contents. One of the aims was to try to figure out where it came from lest you get an uproar from interest groups on earth — without disturbing the sanctity of the grave itself. Every group on earth, attempted to claim the Grave as belonging for their ancestors: from the Maya of Mexico and Central America, to the pre-Inca cultures of Peru, and all the way to the North American Indians; and from across the Atlantic Ocean all the way to Egypt, the Egyptians asserted it; and even the Jews maintaining it might be part of the Lost Tribes of Israel–to mention a few.
The best scenario they could come up with was the ship that is projectile was from, perchance, Mars; but it would be older than dust. A hundred years looked little to no time at all; even 100,000-years didn’t seem long in such a development. A form of hieroglyphics [symbols of an unknown origin]. That is why the Maya archeologists and anthropologists of Egypt figured it could be of their ancestry.
Regardless, it did perfectly like a navigated asteroid, making its home for a hundred years thereof. It was the year 2125 AD, the Tomb as the scientist referred to it, was having its birthday today, July 1; it was one-hundred years of age according to the planet’s paperwork. Tom, the American scientist, along with Milan, the Englishman, and Toño, the Peruvian, were spellbound to see the Tomb resurrect itself.
The Tomb’s windows in the projectile were no longer frozen, heat had returned to the projectile. It was 99-years since man had seen light. How could this be, Tom deliberated, looking greatly into the face of the telescope; NASA had decided to infringe it without notifying them, or maybe an alien ship –were his first ideas.
For the most part, He was obsessed with the event happening, and his mind switched from one thought like a child with a toy that was new. Another thing that took place was the bottom of the projectile had opened up. This is even more amazing for they saw no other space crafts about, so, what took place in the grave? Or even better, what was taking place. Apparently the beings within the container were clearly in some kind of hibernation state. But how did the two beings survive more or a hundred years, was the next question which was going on in all three minds of the scientists; if indeed they did survive, and what they were seeing was not a group-delusion. For after years of looking at the Tomb, they all worried they could end up having some sort of mass illusions.
Inside the tomb, fatal dark, it was dim for 99-years, so the earth that is whole thought.
“It’s light,” he said in a calm and leveled voice–escalating, saying it several times, as both of the other scientists looked curiously at him. Each of the scientists took their turns watching the events unfold.
