All was in readiness for the upcoming mission, this mission had been eagerly anticipated for the rarity of the conjunction that would visible from the space platform's telescope. The scientists and theologians alike were atwitter with excitement. One group to test some obscure Einsteinian theory, the other to note the grand order of the god's. Various filters and magnetometers would be recording the glorious event.
All was going swimmingly as data and photographs were recorded, sorted and catalogued for future study and many an erudite lecture to the initiated. Good heavens above what is this! The last combination to be filmed and recorded shows not the serene and sublime but the planets conjoining show signs of strife, turmoils and fire while in the space of supposed emptiness between is some baneful thing seeming to relish the foments and chaos.
So now science must ponder something not concrete nor bound in realms of the equations. Theologians too must adjust to the face and its implications is inimical or beneficent what bodes the portents.
