“Having arrived from outer space and finally landed New York, we found neither humans nor other forms of life. It’s the same everywhere on planet earth. There are traces of radioactivity everywhere. Without doubt, there has been a nuclear explosion here. A war? Impossible. Earthlings, as we all know, were intelligent beings.
