“The clouds are slow to disperse and linger suspended over the target for days. There shouldn't be many survivors when the troops finally move in.”extract- from the diary of Frederick Holden
“Resisting the seductive but deadly temptation, Mo looked around. The smoke seemed lighter at head level. It swirled around him in misty lethal whorls; a flimsy veil obsuring, but not completely hiding his sanctuary. At first he thought he'd driven over a cliff but this was more like standing in a quarry or the bottom of an open-cut mine; though it was strange that Doug hadn't pointed it out, when they'd flown over the property. He peered up through the murk. The truck must have dropped about nine or ten metres and it wasn't going anyplace. Mo patted the old work horse's nonnet and looked for the easiest place to climb out. Up ahead he could see a tangled roll of wire, half sunk in the sand. Mo guessed this pit must be where Doug dumped his junk. It figured. He had to have somewhere to get rid of rubbish; there were no garbo trucks in the outback. He moved closer but was forced back. The blackened ball of metal was giving off enough heat to melt Antarctica.”Fleeing from a bushfire Mo discovers wreckage from the International Space Station
