Xavier



Xavier had been dwelling here since the last several decades, having made Asteroid X1197 his home. The location was chosen with utmost precision, as he wanted a spot just outside the event horizon of the Black Hole, close enough to observe, but out of its pull.

Today, his research would reach its climax.

He directed his ship towards the horizon, moving in. Satisfaction dawned on his lips, as the lost colors of the world floated like a kaleidoscope inside the Black Hole. In a fraction of a second, the discovery engulfed him.

His research was complete, yet remained undefined.
