Cut to Wychwood Manor, a meeting happening with the researchers and government officials about stopping alien invasion. Wade gathered them there as it was their next base to defend the San-Ti. Wade says the San-Ti are real and they have declared war on us. He planned on fighting back against them. Wade asks if their Sophons can see and hear everything, won’t they know our plans too? Wade says they can’t lie that he knows from the Mike Evans transcripts. And tells them they’ve only got two Sophons and that took them millions of years to build it. Their technology moves very slowly but ours moves fast that’s why they are going after our research.

Wade says we are gonna launch a probe to intercept the enemy’s fleet. They sent their Sophons to Earth to learn about us and Wade plans to do the same to them. But the researcher says it would take 398 years to meet them. But Wade asks them about doing what they did that can do immediately. But researchers say that’s impossible. Wade meets Jin Cheng seeking help with his mission of sending a probe.

Wade tells her that there are only two Sophons, they can be anywhere but not everywhere. So he ordered every particle accelerator on the planet to start up again 24×7 so that it would keep Sophons busy.

But Jin Cheng says it won’t affect it that much as one Sophon can circum navigate through the planet in 8 seconds. Wade says there are 2000 accelerators and if you align the schedules and have experiments on opposite sides of the globe that happen at regular intervals can make one Sophon go indefinitely. Jin Cheng says it better make one on the moon too. Wade tells her to find him a way to get a probe to 1% light speed or faster using current technologies. And if she can come up with a solution she can come to Wychwood Manor and present her proposal.

Jin Cheng comes to Wychwood Manor and proposes her plan which is to use nuclear bombs on the path to the San-Ti fleet and detonate a series of events like one explosion to another, thus making the probe move much faster at the light of 1.14% light speed after 1000s of explosions.

Other researchers oppose the plan as it needs rewrite many amendments related to nuclear usage and it costs trillion dollars for something that only comes after 400 years. Wade likes the idea and tells Jin Cheng he will arrange an office for her. Meanwhile, Auggie Salazar, Will and Auggie Salazar is somewhere on vacation to free from this stress.

Ye Wenjie says one day Vera saw their messages and didn’t speak a word and then she died. Ye Wenjie asks Clarence if there is no charges against her and why can’t she go.

Clarence releases Ye Wenjie after Wade’s permission and tells his assistant to watch her and report her movements every 4 hours. Will tells Auggie Salazar to go help Jin Cheng on this mission. Jin Cheng needs Auggie Salazar’s intelligence and she came all over here. Jin tells Wade there is a problem with acceleration, but Wade tells her it’s all okay because they are sending a human to space for it. Auggie Salazar came to join the mission.
