''Greetings to you, the people of Earth. I am known among my people by the name of Korton. I am from the Planet which in our language is called Masar (Mars). I am in charge of a communications network which relays information from our Planet, either directly or by means of relaying it through our spacecraft which your people have named flying saucers. I wish to introduce to your people another, who is called Voltra. Volta is from the Planet which you call - Venus.’'
‘’Greetings people of Earth. I am called Voltra as my brother Korton, mentioned. I take this time to extend to all of the people upon the Planet Earth, the greetings of all of us whom you have seen in your skies in what you have called flying saucers, but which in reality are space-craft.
My friends - for you - the people of Earth are our friends. Perhaps you have asked why we are visiting your Planet? I will try to answer this in a way which you will understand. All of my remarks to you at this time, I shall try and make readily understandable by your language concepts.
We are visiting your Planet for several very important reasons. We are interested in the advancement your scientists have made in the field of nuclear energy. We have in the past witnessed other Planet’s where this power of nature was discovered and used. Oftentimes, it has been used constructively for the benefit of those people. More often, however, it has been used as a means of destruction, as a means of gaining power - power over people.
This, my friends, is the situation as we observed it upon your Planet. It has been used a a club over the heads of all your peoples. Little do your scientists really know what they are toying with. The result of those radiations now present in your atmosphere in large quantities from the atomic tests which you have conducted have caused this great amount of radiations. (1945 - 1958)
This radiation is very destructive and in many ways it can cause a great increase in the numbers of cases dealing with various forms of insanity. It has rather a disturbing effects upon your circulatory system, particularly the veins and also the heart. The other effect is a gradual poisoning of your entire (body) systems by contamination of foods which you eat and consume. This, my friends, is not a healthy situation.
We have a device which we have used many times since the year 1947, of your time, and that device is what has popularly been called a Green Fireball. This green fireball is a scientific device of our making which is capable of neutralising dangerous amounts of radiation in your atmosphere.
Your scientists will confirm what I am saying when I mention that there are eddy currents in your atmosphere, much like those which exist along your shorelines where the water reaches certain bays and inlets and, therefore, is restrictive in it’s travel and accumulates all manner of debris. Your atmosphere contains similar conditions. The debris most harmful to you at this time is atomic residue radiation. That is one reason why we have visited your Planet.
Another reason is the fact that in the devices you have called hydrogen bombs, you have come very close several times to completely annihilating and disintegrating your entire Planet. On both of these occasions, we have been forced to neutralise those devices.
This we did for two reasons: One, to save your Planet from annihilation; two, to keep the effects of such an annihilation from effecting other Planet’s within your Solar System. The cataclysmic changes which would be present in the structure of your Solar System , and ours, would be tremendous if we were to lose your Planet in such a frightful manner. So you can see we are interested in this matter of nuclear achievement you have made. However, these are just several reasons why we have come.
I should add, that our intentions towards you, the people of Earth, are entirely friendly. We have no wish to take over your governments, to rule your people. There are people in space who are not friendly. I mentioned this only to say to you that not all people who are space people have your best interests at heart. There are however Planets and there are certain Galaxies which contain people whom we would term hostile. These people have achieved various forms of space travel. They have attained access to your Planet in the past, and can still do so. I might add, though, that we watch their craft whenever they are found in this area of space. We try to keep tabs on their activities. More often, we are successful. Sometimes we are not.
I wish to say to you that those people whom you have observed in ships in your atmosphere are entirely physical beings. They are men and women very much like yourselves. We are capable of landing at any time upon your surface. Soon, however, when certain conditions do exist upon your surface in various forms of government and in various sociological changes, our landings will be imminent. When we do land, we will step from our craft and extend to you, the people of Earth, friendship. We ask nothing of you in return, only that we be friends. We wish to exchange with you, information. If, in the near future, after the landings have been accomplished, you wish to enter into commerce or trade with our people, that would be highly desirable and could no doubt be arranged. I would mention also that we have not at any time committed an overt act of aggression towards your people.
Now, I must leave, I extend to all of you, you who are the people of Earth, our greetings.
I am Voltra.''
