I’m standing before an abyss, staring into its depths. I’m a stranger on this planet and everything is alien. The ground feels like nothing beneath my feet because gravity is so weak. The air I dare not breathe. My ship has crashed, there’s no way home and my batteries are running low. What I’ve seen so far, no one else has ever witnessed, but I’ve no food, no water, no shelter here.

I don’t know how to go on, but I can’t not go on. If I’m to keep going, I must save energy. This is my last transmission. Goodbye Earth.
