EXCLUSIVE: Emily Chu reporting — Shuttle pilot Lt. Nancy Ko, returning from a run ‘upside’ to the orbital space station, Fei Long, captured footage of a mysterious object located out in the deep desert. The footage, just released by the Base Commander, Sigrid Thorin, was taken last month but, up till now, no one has been clear as to what it is we are seeing on Ko’s tape. Needless to say, the original footage has long since left Mars and is, no doubt, on its way to Earth to be studied at length, in some secret lab at the UN.
This breaking news comes at a time of unease as reinforcements from Earth continue to arrive and shore up the UN Military presence, out at Alpha Base. While residents of Bubble City worry what this could mean for Martian independence and self rule.
This reporter has to ask the question, is the artefact for real, or another manufactured ruse by the UN to send more troops to Mars?
When asked for comment, de facto Governor, Lily Kwan was unavailable. However, an unnamed spokesperson for the current administration says he believes all possibilities are under consideration.
Which means what, exactly?
Needless to say, this reporter will do her best to dig up the facts and keep you posted.
