THUMP. THUMP. THUMP. A clean, crisp signal cuts through the static and noise of space. When you've spent years listening to the sounds of the cosmos, you get used to hearing weirdness, but Mike Webster knows this is no ordinary signal. It's not a pulsar or a black hole, it's not interference, it's something different, something logical, something with purpose. As part of a three man astronomy team crammed into a car kitted out with all manner of stellar studying equipment, Mike is reluctant to jump to grand conclusions about his little discovery, and secretly transmits a response to the signal.
