Okay, now we’re ready. In the memorable words of the mysterious Destination One:

I’m almost 5 billion years old

    Hot sounds like it’s close to the sun, but with no atmosphere, I’m pretty sure even the surface of the moon is hotter than Earth…. It could be a moon around another planet!

  2. Good thinking Archemedes. This place does have a lot in common with the moon — not that I’m saying it isn’t! Were you trying to trick me? Very clever…

  3. archimedes says:

    At first I thought it was the moon, because of all the craters. But now I’m not so sure.
