Humanity went apeshit when the asteroid appeared in the sky. They called it the end of days, they called it Second Coming, they studied it from afar.
Humanity went even more apeshit when the asteroid appeared to be on a collision course with Earth. Men abandoned their wives, the poor looted from the rich, and employees told their bosses how they really felt about them.
Things only calmed down when the asteroid came and parked in a neat high-orbit around Earth. The world didn’t end and there were a lot of awkward dinners for decades after that.
Naturally, they sent two astronauts up there to see what the asteroid really was. The first stepped outside, the second stayed on the shuttle for backup.
“Hey, Homo,” was the last thing Alex Jones would expect to hear upon stepping foot on the asteroid. He must have imagined it, right? Just static, tricking his mind into thinking he could hear words that weren’t there.
