A crew of experts had been called to gather at a secret government facility somewhere in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. They weren’t sure why they had been brought there, or where they even were, but they weren’t really given a choice. The plane made a hard left and as the wings dipped underneath the passengers, they caught their first glimpse of why they’d been brought out here. In the middle of the ocean was a hole. It was over two hundred kilometres wide surrounded by a fence of naval ships. Nothing was flowing into the hole. It was as though a giant circle of the ocean was just…missing.
