Freefall 0051

Asteroids and other close encounters

0051.jpg

We were never in any danger. The asteroid was dropped at a shallow angle and boiled away before impact.

All we're going to see is it's condensation.

Boils off, then condenses.. That would mean…

Rain.

I would have figured it out!

Captain, now we have a problem. That ice asteroid contained over 100 cubic kilometers of water.

We're now in a canyon. That means…

FLASH FLOOD! RUN FOR THE TRUCK!

He caught on quick. There may be hope for him yet.

I think I am going to panic.

No, no, no. No panicking. I need you to tell me what to do.

See? If you had panicked with us earlier, you wouldn't need to panic now.

Oh, hush.

We need to get off the canyon floor.

How much?

Three, maybe four meters.

Well, whatever works, I guess.

Here we are, stuck in a tree in the middle of a flash flood.

Fortunately, I know just what to do in this situation.

Florence, if you're going to work with us, you've got to learn to relax.

Most problems take care of themselves, if given enough time.

CRRACK!

For instance, take the problem of how we're going to get out of this tree…

The water level's gone down. We can get the truck out.

Great. Now I have to travel with someone who smells like a wet dog.

Helix, you don't even have a nose.

Someone who I suspect smells like a wet dog.

Okay, Sam. Start backing down the truck.

Slowly… Slowly…

Too fast.

I'm beginning to learn what a crash test dummy must feel like.

Ahh, yes. Nothing like travel to broaden one's horizons.

Arrival at the abandoned colony ship

Look! You can see the remains of the colony ship. We're almost there.

I'm just anxious for this trip to be over.

I've noticed. Your tail wagging's caused our speed to go up 10 kph.
