As you know, Earth has been surrounded by a sphere of undetermined material. The newly-established World Government may have a hard time coping. I am Professor Y and have discovered the sphere to be macro-crystalline. If we can fully map the structure using remote-controlled probes then we could hope to produce a resonance pattern to crack the sphere and SAVE EARTH!
Lead the world with your pattern-matching skills as your probe flies along the sphere and you tag each pattern with your Pilot name - but watch out for static! Check the GUIDE for instructions and please read the DRAMATIC HISTORY so you can present your opinions in the Pilots LOUNGE.
