Delman shook his head. "No, curiously enough, we don't. It's only a tertiary planet--less than one-eighth of Earth's volume--but its specific gravity is enormous. Rejuvenite, the rock it's composed of, is one of the heaviest minerals ever discovered. They say--"

"Look, Delman," Walter Pellinger interrupted, "let that blasted man wear his boots, if he wants to. I'm sure I don't care. But for heaven's sake, stop this geological survey! It's bad enough being cooped up in this tub without having to listen to a lot of nursery small-talk."

"I wasn't talking to you," said Pellinger curtly, "but, since you've chosen to butt in, I'll say this--you don't belong here.
