Quark Evolution

by Denny E. Marshall





The space probe contains a canister on route to earth. Scientists know the probe launched from the sun. What they didn’t know is the sun has evolved to the next level.

When it arrives, the canister is opened. Inside the container is one sheet of paper. A gas bill for this month, payment due shortly.
