Here is Dr. Bergrun's ultra-rare material in which he reveals that NASA's Voyager I and II space-probes captured photographs of an estimated 7,000-mile-long elliptical (cigar-shaped) craft orbiting in the rings of Saturn. This gigantic electro-magnetic vehicle appears to be streaming a chlorine-like yellowish colored cloud. From photographs first taken during this Voyager I flight to Saturn in 1980, the reader of this remarkable book sees that one shows the A-ring is incomplete. Bergrun sets out to explain this phenomenon in an easily understandable form. The famous Cassini and Enke gaps also fit into the explanation and the micro-photography employed by Bergrun answers many questions about Saturn asked since Galileo. Bergrun's discoveries also demonstrate a relation to the well defined crater on the earth's moon Mare Orientale and the 1908 Tunguska catastrophe in the U.S.S.R. Bergrun demonstrates, in the face of these facts, that humankind must appreciate the social impact of these findings and strive towards a peaceful world unity.
