The question has always lingered-is space never ending?
Most have settled with this conclusion mainly because they always asked:
"What could possibly be after space?"
No one knew. Well, of course. How could they know such a thing? You'd have to go to space and find out yourself. Heck, we can hardly go to the moon right now, let alone into another galaxy.
Then, in 3018, a huge space shuttle was released, stocked with food and supplies enough for at least thirty years. Bye now NASA had invented technology that allowed the astronauts to never loose weight somehow and be able to exist that long in the midst of space. There was plenty of entertainment on board so a boring evening shouldn't have been a problem. It never was, anyways. They had the life up there, though they knew that they might never see their families ever again, not even talk tot them, and only because they were usually too far out to obtain a signal from NASA. When there was not as much debris in their path they could contact them, but only by using Braille.
In 3038 NASA got a message saying that they had found nothing but extensive galaxies and that space was probably never ending. They wanted to keep on going, though, because all of them felt a force that drew their minds to it, so they went on.
They never returned.
What happened? No one knows except...
Except for the ten astronauts that were on board the shuttle.
Were they dead? Maybe, maybe not. But was there a chance they survived? Maybe, but more than likely, yes. Only they know what happened...
They know it alright, and they know it well. They had been sucked up by a black hole, which was terrifying. Scientists had always said that whatever goes into a black hole is destroyed, but apparently they were wrong. They were vacuumed right into a second universe
where the mythical creatures of legend were real, but only one planet was able to sustain life, and that planet was called Liffay.
It had a solar system of it's own, almost an exact replica of the solar system that we are familiar with now. It had a sun, and Liffay was the third planet from the blazing star.
The astronauts landed sucessfully and without harm. They were taken in by the people of the planet with open arms, but only in exchange for answers to questions like: "Who are you? Where are you from? What is this 'Earth' like? What is your story? ect."
Now, you are one of the ten astronauts who landed in this strange place. Will you try to return home, live there, or will you just sit and ponder for the rest of your life on what to do?
