Messages are being sent into the space in search of intelligent beings elsewhere in the universe. One day a reply message is received and a journey is launched to find out the source of the message a planet with intelligent beings perhaps. It turns out it is not a planet but the nineth planet of the bennot planet's people

Space-Station-9
 
The Space craft was ready for lift off. The space craft was standingvertically on the launch pad with the gantry tower's support. At it's very top,Nivedhan and Yamini lay supine engaged in space-craft's check-up andstarting manoeuvres. Count-down was in progress.T-minus five minutes-"Yamini can we check the fuel-system?""Checked. Green""Communication system""Also green""Trajectory control""Go""Telemetry system""Also go""All systems go"Final count-down-T-minus 9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,0....Ignition on!Nivedhan switched on the ignition .....ROOOOAR! Engines sprang into lifewith their roar rising to a crescendo and the space-craft dived upwardsspewing out hot balls of fire, into the skies
 
Thirty kilometres above earth, forty kilometres, fifty, sixty, seventy thespace-craft tiltingly climbed .....and above ninety kilometres a almost zerovaccum began. It freely coasted and revolved around the earth in egg-shaped orbit.Nivedhan contacted the ground control."Ground control . This is Nivedhan and Yamini.Everything is fine here.Space-craft is cruising fluently without any hitch""Very glad to hear everything is fine. Space craft has completed onerevolution. Two more rounds to go. Then you go into outer space. Roger""After the third round, yamini revved up the booster engine, the space craftgained speed and ZOOOOMED into outer space.The g-forces attainedpeak power when the space craft attempted into pull away from the earth'sstrong gravitational force. Their vision began to dim and they tried their bestnot to lose consciousness. After a last-second struggle, it pulled away fromthe earth's gravitational field diving into the outer space and they escapedfrom the fury of the g-forces.Were there intelligent beings in the vast expanse of universe just as humanbeings on Earth? In the event of such intelligent beings living elsewhere inthe universe, it is customary to spew out coded signals into outer space toinform them about the existence of Earth. A reply signal came to such auniversal message just a few days back. The reply signals indicated thatthey were very near. They were heading to the source of that signal. Sincethe signals appeared to be so near it might be from a hitherto undiscoveredtenth planet in the solar system.In the control panel's video screen the space-craft's path appeared loudand clear. The scanner and the fixed point antenna are the space-craft'stwo eyes.While the scanner served to scan the immediate vicinity the co-ordinates-
 
finding- antenna focussed on the distant objects. They were on differntscreens. The co-ordinates-finding- antenna was tuned for the target source.Nivedhan's eyes moved over to the scanner screen....What is this? In thescreen there was a big light circle. "May be a supernova explosion" heinformed and operating the reverse control, withdrew the space craftbackwards and operating yaw control turned the space craft sideways andtried to avert the space craft cominng under the influence of the light circle.No use. The light circle enlarged and enlarged and reached out to thespace craft as if to engulf it. The space craft shook enormously andcommunicaton with the earth snapped.Nivedhan called "Yamini"- as the microphone was not working with themouth moving silently in the vaccum.-----Back on the Earth.... All hell had broken loose in the ground control with all order going haywireand there was utter chaos."Nivedhan-Yamini. Nivedhan-Yamini! Repeatedly electro magnetic wavescalling them surged into the vacant outer space and searched for them. Noresponse from them."What would have happened? Expanding light circle, supernova explosion-that was the message they received from Nivedhan and Yamini last. Theywere transmitting pictures continuously from the space craft. if they have alook at the pictures upto the last message received they might be able todicipher the reason for the communication black out with the space craftcrew. A call flew into the telemetry centre."Telemetry centre. This is Ground control, the uptodate pictures sent in byNivedhan, Yamini needed immediately"
