He explained that his arrival was delayed due to the dust storm of Mars. They went to harvest some vegetables in the vegetation hab. There, grandpa explained that the taste of fruits and vegetables in the Mars were not better than in the Earth. Arivu asked why he said so, as they were getting unpolluted food in the Mars. Grandpa explained that they got water from burning fuels in the Mars whereas they had got water from the rain in the earth which was natural and free. They were fighting for things  in the Mars which they had got easily in the Earth. There was no need of a spacesuit or an oxygen cylinder in the Earth. The years were longer in the Mars.

Amuthan pressed a big green colour switch thinking that the door would open by pressing it. But unfortunately, the shuttle burst out into the outerspace. The shuttle went through a belt of asteroids. Nilavan noticed an asteroid coming towards the shuttle and so he asked Amuthan to turn the direction of the shuttle.

Nilavan noticed some green lights approaching them. They were Aliens. Amuthan and Nilavan were afraid on seeing them. The aliens pacified them by saying that there was some problem in their shuttle which they(the aliens) could fix it properly. Amuthan and Nilavan wondered when the aliens spoke their language. One of the alien said that it was possible by reading the mind of the humans. The aliens provided a special room to take rest and gave them a capsule which was equal to food. After sometime, the alien woke up the boys and informed that the space shuttle was ready to go home.
