Snip Three

An hour later Hal was sitting in the flight deck, gazing at a satellite image of planet Dismolle on the main viewscreen. The display was centred on a sandy beach, where hoards of sunbathers were stretched out on their towels.

  ‘But I can’t see anything!’
  ‘That’s why it’s the limit.’
