CHAPTER TWENTY NINE
Like a tiny complicated toy, the ship floated in space. There was no sign of any life on board. In fact, there were two signs that all life had ended - the airlock doors were wide open, and coming out from them was a cloud of rubbish that was already several kilometers long.
But there was still power on board. A faint blue light was shining from the windows. And now, at last, there was movement.
A long object covered in cloth came out of the airlock and floated away. A moment later it was followed by another - and then a third.
Half an hour passed, and then one of the space vehicles came out through the airlock. It moved slowly round the ship and landed near the base of the antenna. A space-suited figure got out of it, worked there for a few minutes, then returned to the vehicle. After a time the vehicle made its way back to the airlock and re-entered the ship.
Nothing happened for over an hour. Then the airlock doors closed and, a little later, the full lighting system came on. Then the great bowl of the antenna began to move, turning round to face the back of the ship.
Inside Discovery, David Bowman carefully pointed the antenna towards Earth. There was no automatic control now. But he could hold it steady for a few minutes. It would be over an hour before his words reached Earth, and another hour before any reply could reach him.
It was difficult to imagine what answer Earth could possibly send, except a sympathetic ‘Goodbye’.
