excerpts from an interview given by doctor valentin pillman on the occasion of his award with the nobel prize for physics in the year 19 .. the special correspondent of radio harmont.


"is it right to speak doctor pillman of the so-called pillman radian as its first significant discovery?"


"i do not think so, the pillman-radiant is neither the first nor a significant, nor at all a real discovery, and certainly not mine."


"this is certainly a joke, mr. Doctor. The pillman-radiant is nowadays a common concept for every student!"


"i can not remember his name, but look into statson's "history of the visit", where everything is described in detail, the radium was discovered by a student, The coordinates were published by a student, only he was strangely named after me."


"well, it is true ... with discoveries, sometimes the most remarkable things happen, could they, doctor doctor, perhaps explain our listeners ..."


"but surely the pillman radiant is a very simple phenomenon, imagine a big globe to spin and fire from a revolver shot at him, the holes on the globe become a kind of flowing curve form.
the essence of what they call my first important discovery is explained by this simple comparison: all six visiting zones on our planet are arranged as if someone had given six pistol shots to the earth, from any location on the planet Line earth – deneb. deneb, which they know, is the principal of the star image swan. that point at the firmament, from which, so to speak, was shot, is called pillman-radiant."

"i thank them, doctor, they have now got a brief and understandable explanation of what is going on with the pillman radiant, and I would like to remind you that the visit took place exactly thirteen thirteen years ago. should I ask her to tell doctor philman a few words to this event?"

"in which regard they must remember that i was not at that time in harmony ..."

"the more interesting it would be to know what thoughts they moved when their hometown became an extraterrestrial supercivilization."

"honestly, i thought this report was a duck, it was unthinkable that something like this could happen in our old little one, the gobi or newfoundland of the desert – that would have been an issue, but harmony ..."

"after all, they had to recognize it as an actual process."

"yes, i had to."

"and what happened next?"

"i was astonished to find that harmont and the other five groups of visitors-pardon, at this time only four were known-formed a very even curve, and i calculated the coordinates of the radian and sent them to the "nature"

"and the destiny of her hometown has not troubled her?"
