Most of us worry about some 'danger' or other ... flood, tempest, storm,
car-crash etc. But very few of us are even aware of a very great danger that
lurks above our heads.
In the vast blackness of space numerous 'chunks' of rock are hurtling about on
seemingly pointless journeys and even as you read this one or two of them will
be entering the Earth's outer atmosphere to be burnt up in a ball of flame.
However some of the larger of these 'chunks' are quite capable of making the
journey to the surface of the Earth .... and remaining intact enough to cause
some considerable damage.
These 'chunks' take on the form of 'meteoroids' and 'asteroids' and one of them
was the catalyst that brought about the downfall of the age of the Dinosaur, so
their power to inflict damage should be taken seriously.
Over the years many of these have caused scientists to rack their brains in an
attempt to construct some sort of 'fail-safe' device with which to prevent their
arrival on Earth. Much has been tried, from I.C.B.Ms to laser beams and on the
odd occasion even these have seemed futile against the menace of the speeding
asteroid, hell-bent upon making its mark on good old planet Earth.
The Story So Far
A large chunk of rock is presently being plotted across space, on a course to
impact with the city of London and the scientists involved in tracking this
asteroid are, at this moment in time, actively engaged in seeking out some means
at their disposal with which to divert it from its chosen path. A high-intensity
laser-beam is tried but to no avail and then, just when the cause seems lost,
news breaks of a 'repelling-beam' machine invented by a now-dead professor.
your task is to locate this machine and if possible to utilise it to deflect the
asteroid and thus save the city of London from certain destruction... Can you
do just that?
