In every government bureaucracy there's at least one obsessed executive. When that bureaucracy is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) the obsession can be about anything in the Universe. James Murdock's obsession is proving intelligent life exists on other planets. When he believes intelligent beings from another planet have arrived on Earth, he 's willing to give up everything to encounter it.
James Murdock knew about objects in space as well as anybody. He was scientifically gifted; and since childhood had fantasized about becoming an astronaut and traveling to the Moon, Mars and the stars. In college at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology he took mostly those courses that would help him become an astronaut, graduating with honors with a degree in physics. He obtained his master’s degree in astrophysics from Princeton. He applied to NASA to become an astronaut in his second year. His grades were straight As, and his physical conditioning was impressive. When NASA doctors gave him a medical exam, however, they discovered an inner-ear problem, the result of a childhood illness, that caused him to have random, mild vertigo attacks, and he washed out of the program. The attacks were rare, and James had convinced himself they wouldn’t have been a problem. Nevertheless, they disqualified him. NASA was impressed with James, however, and they offered him a desk job. He quickly won promotions, and after only eight years he became the Director of the Deep Space Network at the JPL, run by the University of California for NASA. James was an outstanding employee, but he never got over his desire to be an astronaut; and he never got over his belief that man wasn’t alone in the Universe. This incident was just what he had been waiting for.
