The Russian scientist was no pushover either . He couldn’t help but sneer when he heard Song Jinning say that the process was like sending a signal from a television series, and said, “The transmission of a television signal requires a high-powered signal tower . Where in Novosibirsk do you think there is such a signal tower that can send the signal to more than a decade later? Hehehehe, I say that you guys are delusional, delusional!”
It was one thing to say that Gu Nianzhi was delusional, but he actually said that Song Jinning was also delusional!
Gu Nianzhi couldn’t stand it!
She turned to look at the scientist, then enunciated each word clearly, “Before the appearance of the plane, many ignorant people didn’t believe that people could fly in the sky . Before the appearance of the telephone, people also didn’t believe that one day, people would be able to freely communicate with each other by holding a small rectangular box . You’re a scientist . I thought your thinking would be a few steps ahead of ordinary people, but now it seems that you don’t even have the imagination of ordinary people . ”
Gu Nianzhi’s rebuke made the Russian scientist blush . He wanted to refute her, but couldn’t think of any practical examples at the moment, so he could only turn his head and sulk .
Song Jinning patted Gu Nianzhi’s hand with a smile . “There’s no need to argue with narrow-minded people . The development of science doesn’t depend on individual will . Ignorant and short-sighted people will only become an obstacle to the development of science . ——Alright now, let’s ignore them and just do our own thing . ”
Gu Nianzhi nodded . “Ms . Song, you have the best cultivation . I shouldn’t have argued with an ignorant person . ”
It was ironic and arrogant to call the Russian scientist an “ignorant person” .
However, the other party couldn’t refute it . This type of “ignorance” wasn’t ignorance in terms of knowledge, but ignorance in terms of vision and imagination . These two were also the bottlenecks that restricted the development of science and technology .
The other scientists looked at each other, then buried their heads in their work and didn’t speak again .
Worried that something might go wrong, Huo Shaoheng led his men to stand guard .
He said to Gu Nianzhi, “Follow me and don’t wander around . ”
Gu Nianzhi smiled and agreed, then obediently following behind him .
Huo Shaoheng was on guard, so she looked around and took pictures with her phone from time to time .
Sometimes she took pictures of the scenery, sometimes she took selfies, and sometimes she leaned over to Huo Shaoheng and took selfies with him .
Even though Huo Shaoheng ignored her, she could have fun by herself .
The driver followed Vladimir, Lina, and Peter to take charge of the Russian scientists’ surveillance mission .
Upon seeing that Gu Nianzhi and Huo Shaoheng were inseparable like a couple, the chauffeur made a gesture of “vomiting” and chuckled as he said, “I think I’ll be stuffed with PDA for the next few days . ”
Vladimir was very envious of Huo Shaoheng . He quickly glanced at Lina beside him, then saw that she still had a grave expression on her face and was completely unmoved . She didn’t seem to have any intention of “showing off PDA” with him, so he was a little disappointed, but he also felt a little itchy .
It was also his great luck to be able to arouse the interest of such a tough woman .
Vladimir thought that although Gu Nianzhi wasn’t bad, she was too coquettish . She wasn’t his cup of tea . Only a woman like Lina would be able to spend the rest of her life with him side by side .
He stared at the side profile of Lina’s high cheekbones thoughtfully and chuckled as he said, “Major Lina, do you want to take a break? It will be fine with the three of us here . ”
He pointed at the driver and Peter .
Lina shook her head . “No need . I’m not sleepy . ”
The driver looked at them with a smile and said hurriedly, “I’m sleepy! Can I take a break?”
“Get lost! ” Vladimir’s facial expression changed instantly and he kicked the driver away .
Ignoring their banter, Peter followed behind them with his eyes drooped and his hands behind his back .
As time passed, the sun rose even higher .
The fog above the circular crater became thinner and thinner . The images of Novosibirsk from more than a decade ago also became fainter and fainter . There was also less and less data captured by the detector .
In the end, the fog completely dissipated and the images disappeared . The data could no longer be detected .
Song Jinning said reluctantly, “This time, this data is worth a few years of hard work . ”
She studied magnetic fields, and the changes in the magnetic field here could be said to be the pinnacle of theoretical development . Most of the data could only be detected from the depths of the universe .
“Could it be that the Tunguska explosion was really caused by the impact of a comet?”
During lunch, the scientists chatted idly .
Gu Nianzhi couldn’t butt in such an esoteric discussion topic . She merely picked up a large prawn and planned to dip it in seafood sauce .
Huo Shaoheng quickly picked up a few prawns for her, as well as fresh and tender Arctic shellfish, and placed them on the plate in front of her .
Gu Nianzhi didn’t eat alone . She picked up a prawn with a fork and smiled as she placed it into Huo Shaoheng’s mouth .
Huo Shaoheng opened his mouth to eat, and fed her the Arctic shellfish as well .
The two of them fed each other as if no one else was around . Thinking that they would probably have to prepare for the wedding and the nursery when they got back, Song Jinning watched in delight . .
The middle-aged driver had come over with a smile and had wanted to talk to Gu Nianzhi, but when he saw this scene, he silently took his tray and left again . He returned to Vladimir, Lina, and Peter’s side and sat to eat with them under the big tree .
Vladimir saw the situation on Huo Shaoheng and Gu Nianzhi’s side from afar and smiled . “I didn’t expect Major General Huo to spoil Cereus so much . Tsk Tsk, how much does he like her?”
Peter looked at him and then placed a grilled prawn on Lina’s plate .
Lina: ” … ”
Vladimir was nervous . He didn’t hesitate to place his grilled prawn on Lina’s plate as well .
The driver suddenly stood up .
He felt depressed living in a world where people displayed PDA everywhere!
He left the big tree without looking back and found a place to eat alone .
After that day, the scientists’ observations came to a standstill .
The giant circular crater seemed to have run out of energy during the projection of the New York City image that day, and no magnetic field data could be detected .
Gu Nianzhi and Huo Shaoheng held hands as they strolled along the small hillside around the giant circular crater .
She looked at the giant circular crater not far away and said with a sigh, “Could there really be special energy here?”
Whether it was the undulation curve that had appeared here in the beginning or the projection of New York City that had appeared a few days ago, they all pointed to this result .
But no one knew exactly what it was .
Everyone could only analyze the available data in an attempt to reach a scientific conclusion .
But this conclusion wasn’t something that could be obtained in a day or two .
For several days, Song Jinning had returned from the giant circular crater in disappointment .
On the last day, she stood in front of the giant circular crater and said to Gu Nianzhi, “I’m afraid there’s not much research value here for the time being . I think we can go back now . ”
Gu Nianzhi comforted Song Jinning, “There’s already a lot of good data here . Go back and study it properly . The conclusion should be waiting for us not that far away . ”
Song Jinning nodded ruefully . “I hope we can come to a conclusion right away . Actually, what I said about the projection from more than ten years ago was just a bold assumption . We still need to be careful to verify it . Our hypothesis could be right or wrong . The field of science is vast and profound . Anything can happen . ”
“Ms . Song, you can do it . I believe in you!” Gu Nianzhi said with a smile . She turned around and saw Lina, holding onto a long rope, climbing up from the bottom of the huge circular pit .
“Huh? Major Lina, why are you here? What’s down there? Is it fun? You’re so brave to have the guts to go down! ” Gu Nianzhi greeted her in surprise .
Lina looked at her calmly and removed the long rope from her waist . “Hello, I’m going down to help the scientists collect the cameras and detection equipment . ”
Song Jinning took the long rope and handed it to a staff member at the side . She smiled and said, “Thank you, Major Lina . ”
“You’re welcome . I still have a few cameras here that belong to scientists from our country . ” Lina nodded at them and turned to leave .
Vladimir and Peter, together with the Russian scientists, stood about two hundred meters away from them .
Gu Nianzhi asked curiously, “Why are the Russian scientists’ cameras on our side?”
She had thought that this was a divided area — the Huaxia Scientists’ area, and the Russian scientists’ area . The walls were clearly divided .
Song Jinning was amused by her . She said, “Why would there be a divided area? Everyone is doing scientific research, so of course they have cameras from all angles . Our cameras are on their side too . That gentleman was the one who sent them back to me moments before . ”
Song Jinning pouted at Peter .
Gu Nianzhi understood and smiled sheepishly . “I’m showing my ignorance again . Ms . Song is the best . She never laughs at me . ”
If it had been the shrp-tongued Russian scientist, he would have laughed at her ignorance again .
As they spoke, a few more staff members climbed up from beneath the circular crater . They were all tied up with long ropes and were carrying a lot of equipment and cameras .
These people were all members of the Huaxia Empire’s entourage, and most of them were field agents from the special operations forces .
Gu Nianzhi saw that Huo Shaoheng had actually gone down as well . He had blended in with the staff and had disguised himself so that no one would be able to recognize him .
However, Gu Nianzhi was so familiar with him that no matter how he disguised himself, she could sense him whenever he appeared around her .
Of course, she didn’t make any sounds to acknowledge him .
Since Huo Shaoheng had chosen to disguise himself, he definitely didn’t want anyone to know that he had gone down there .
Gu Nianzhi didn’t know why he had gone down there, but she guessed that it was because of his work .
She smiled and turned to talk to Song Jinning . She packed up the equipment with her and prepared to go home .
Just then, something strange happened .
As if the earth was shaking and the mountains were shaking, there was a loud bang .
In fact, the entire ground beneath their feet was shaking .
The rocks rolled down and almost caused a mudslide .
The tall birch forest began to topple . Water rippled in the huge circular pit, and filling the air with smoke, flames shot up into the sky .
Gu Nianzhi reflexively hugged Song Jinning and threw herself on the ground . She rolled into the open to avoid the explosion at their feet!
On the other side, the explosion at the Russian scientist’s side was even more intense .
The explosion sounded at their feet . This time, it wasn’t a fake “electric spark”, but a real explosion!
Vladimir didn’t have time to think about who would be able to break through his and Huo Shaoheng’s defenses and bury the explosives at the edge of the giant circular pit . He reflexively turned around and used his body to protect the Russian scientist beside him .
The giant blue pit appeared before his eyes and continued to enlarge .
At that moment, he saw his entire life, since his childhood, flash by his eyes . He couldn’t help but regret that he wasn’t married and hadn’t had children yet . .
At that moment, Lina pounced over without hesitation and used her body to protect Vladimir .
The explosion was even louder . Lina pushed Vladimir hard, but she could not withstand the impact of the explosion . Her feet slipped and she rapidly rolled towards the bottom of the giant circular pit!
“Lina! ” Vladimir, who had been pushed away, turned around and shouted at the top of his lungs . He wanted to jump down as well, but he was tightly held in place by Peter and the driver .
