Part 2, Chapter 14

The Listeners

  • Now the novel provides a tribute to Deep Space Monitor 79 and the awesome scientists who created it, because scientific hardware is awesome.
  • Deep Space Monitor 79 detects radiation and such-like.
  • It picks up weird radiation, which (dramatic pause) is from the slab thingy making that electronic noise.
  • Other probes pick up the weird signals too.
  • The signal is pointing out to the stars. That means the slab is signaling to something…out there. Creepy.
