Spectacle

The hole was the size as Jupiter. The one thing command did not want to happen, Tripp and his crew of mischievous astronauts allowed. They past to close, and got sucked into the empty space.

Once the ship was engulfed by the opening, a unique light show flashed. The five crew members gathered in the tiny cockpit to witness the spectacle through the window that wrapped around from side to side.

The display seemed to last hours, if not days. Tripp was the first to spot the planet in the distance. He regained control of the vessel and set a course for it.

After they exited the vehicle at their destination, nobody looked familiar. Tripp went up to an astronaut he recognized from a picture in a history book long ago.

“John Glenn,” he shook Tripp’s hand.

Tripp realized him and his crew just altered history.
