Meanwhile on Terra the small blue plant close to Sol, the plague continued. People grew tired as one day leached into the other, days and months grew longer and bleaker.
MOSE is delighted to be examining further artefacts that were brought from the VOID by the Balinger Freight Company. In surprisingly good condition this textile piece seems to date from the early 21st Century. From our most up to date historical records MOSE believes it came from one of the Exoplanets circling the small star SOL. Research is now suggesting that this era was a time of increasing heat on one of those planets (reaching, on occasion, 38C at one of the poles) causing wildfires, drought, and extreme weather situations. Plagues of locusts killed crops. Viruses stalked the lands. ATISHOO, the curators imagine, was in reference to the latter.
