The X5 takes off, heading west to the mountains to investigate the anomaly that satellites detected… the previous attempt to explore this region ended in disaster, when the X4 crashed! Val pilots the X-5 past the X-4 crash site, attempting to approach from a different direction!
Success! Val sets the X-5 down in a relatively flat area, about 1000m from the Anomaly!
“The air sure is thin up here… better put on my helmet! ”
Wow! It’s pretty up here!
“I found it! Wow! What could these things be? What could they mean? ”
The two explorers head back to the KSC to share their findings!
