Overview

The Planets show the evidence of a massive destructive force that periodically wreaks havoc on the Solar System; a missing fifth planet, a planet stripped of its atmosphere, elongated orbits. The Orbians lost their home and were driven from our system.

As the Orb approached the void, the atmosphere was pulled away from the planet like the skin peeled from a fish. The telescope in Nadia’s orbital observatory showed the event in painfully clear detail. Then the waters of the seas followed in and upward swirling straw like path. A constant plume of air, water and all materials on the surface was lifted as if vacuumed from a rug. It was as if the soul was leaving the Orb’s body. The rotation of the Orb and the pull of the void caused a gigantic wall of water to travel around the Orb and through the deep canyons. Even as a constant stream of air, water and much of the top layer of the Orb was pulled away by the void, a twenty click high wall of water traveled swiftly ahead around the Orb. It scrubbed the surface clean of all structures. The walls at the top of the canyons were pulled up and out toward the void. The sound wave traveling out before the massive wall of water gave those ahead a few moments notice of their impending death. The winds picked up. At first the wind reminded those standing out before it of spring and hope. But swiftly, the winds howled and sang the song of death and the millions standing bravely and facing the impending doom were instantly pulverized by the un-measurable forces of the wall of water ripping the life from the surface of the Orb. The water lifted and all was pulled through space toward the void.
The watchers would forever hear the silent screams and would feel their skin being ripped from their bodies. They would forever, try to grasp the enormity of the catastrophe they witnessed. The sight of the barren rock left behind could never be scrubbed from their souls. The eternal silent scream of the dying Orb was cast into the surrounding vacuum of space.
It would spend the rest of its days traveling through the seas of space, lifeless, destined to travel forever with only the memory of the lives, the loves, and the glory which once flourished on its surface.

James Ryan Major
J.R. Major is has traveled the world and visited more than sixty countries. He is happily married with three grown children. He takes pride in having earned a Master Degree in Engineering and being a licensed professional engineer.
He was born in Brazil, S.A. but his roots are in the Iowa farm country. He hunted rabbits with a stick. He caught the snapping turtle much the same way. Milking four cows by hand before going to school made him hate early mornings. Helping raise rabbits and chickens for the family to eat made him careful about associating too closely with animals.
J.R. has worked all his life in a variety of fields. He was a farm hand, a dishwasher, a construction crew hand, a brick tender and a rail car loader all before graduating from High School. In the US Navy he was an electronic technician, and was trained as a nuclear reactor operator, he also was a hydrofoil navigator and helmsman. During his Navy days, he was also a bar tender in a “Bunny” club in Norfolk, Virginia.
After the Navy he went to Pensacola, Junior College. During this time he worked as a night watchman. He then went to the University of South Florida. There he did moving and hauling and painted houses.
J.R. earned a Master’s in Engineering from the University of South Florida; got a real job at Procter and Gamble; and became a professional Engineer.
