Epilogue, Pt2 by Wayne Jeff
Pasadena control: It’s looking good, it’s going good, we're getting great pictures here at NASA control Pasadena. The landing craft touched down on Mars 28 kilometres from the aim point. We're looking at a remarkable landscape, littered with different kinds of rocks. Red, purple, how about that, Bermuda?
Bermuda control: Fantastic. Look at that dune field!
Pasadena control: Hey, wait, I, I'm getting a no-go signal. Now I'm losing one of the craft. Hey Bermuda you getting it?
Bermuda control: Nah, lost contact. There's a lot of dust blowing up there.
Pasadena control: Now I lost the second craft. We got problems.
Bermuda control: Full contact lost, Pasadena. Maybe the antenna’s…
Pasadena control: What’s that flare? See it? A green flare coming from Mars. Kind of a green mist behind it. It’s getting closer. You see it, Bermuda? ...Come in, Bermuda! ...Houston, come in! What's going on... tracking station 43 Canberra, come in Canberra!... tracking station 63, can you hear me Madrid... can anybody hear me? Come in...! Come in...!
