Captain’s Blog star date 5052012-wp: The mysterious haunting sound has gone silent. I have found no life on the surface except large colonies of a kelp like vegetation floating on the seas. This planet has very thin ozone layer, and its sun has a bad habit of releasing waves of gamma radiation. The kelp seems to eat it up then turn it into oxygen. I have sent my harvesting drones out to gather the resource.
I decided to put my starship in orbit and fit the Solo-Pod for underwater exportation. The drop into the sea from space was rough ride, but the repairs I made earlier are holding up. The kelp has a root system! Long straws pipe oxygen down to the dark sea floor. I hit my lights in the darkness and was amazed to find familiar looking creatures. Thanks to the kelp I can use the Solo-Pod’s water jets to refill my tanks and stay underwater for as long as needed.
