CHAPTER 3 Hearing from Maxwell 01

 

KEVIN

Did you see it on the news? We heard again from Maxwell 01 today.

JULIE

What did they have to say?

KEVIN

They are ready to start making animals. They have the DNA for all our animals. With the plants doing well the next step is animals. And then humans.

JULIE

Just as well they won’t expect a reply. It wouldn’t get there for four years.

KEVIN

Four years isn’t long for them. They left for Maxwell 01 in 3415. It took 800 years or so to get there so they would have been in orbit in 4200 or thereabouts.

JULIE

Just as well they are robots and not humans. Those times are a bit long for humans.

KEVIN

True, but they send a message at regular intervals but if you are not doing anything for hundreds of years there is not much to talk about. And now they have more to talk about than setting up camp on Maxwell 01.

JULIE

Well it is 4576 now so it took it about 300 years to set up the space elevator and then get everything going up and down to the surface. They set up a dome to begin the birth of humans and other animals. And fill it with a suitable atmosphere of course.

KEVIN

The robots they took would be getting on. Yes, they would be making replacement robots in the spaceship.

JULIE

The ones that got there first would be worn out. Actually I guess there must be a lot of messages about new robots being made.

KEVIN

No doubt. And it would have kept a record of its progress. The trouble is of course when we ask it for a particular copy of the record of an activity it will take us eight years to get it from Maxwell 01.

JULIE

I should assume it was set up to send us a complete history of the progress. Much of it would not make interesting TV watching.

KEVIN

I look forward to hearing from humans.

JULIE

If humans haven’t started to be produced it will be a while before we hear from them. We’ll just hear from robots for years yet.
