Simon est sur la Sphère, à côté de Hoover et de Lanson, l’ingénieur anglais TV qui dirige la descente d’un gros câble. L’extrémité du câble est percée de deux lentilles superposées, celle d’un projecteur miniature, celle de la mini-caméra. Au fond du Puits, Léonova saisit le câble dans ses deux mains gantées, et l’introduit dans le trou noir. Lorsqu’il a pénétré d’environ un mètre, elle lève les bras. Lanson arrête la progression du câble. ŕ Tout est paré, dit-il à Hoover. ŕ Attendez-moi, dit Léonova.
Léonova ferma les yeux et secoua sa tête dans son casque. Quand elle releva les paupières, elle ne regardait plus dans la direction de l’homme. Elle descendit, et poussa Simon avec son genou. Elle sortit de sa sacoche un petit instrument à cadran, fit quelques pas, et le mit en contact avec le bloc qui contenait la femme. Il y resta collé. Elle regarda le cadran, et dit d’une voix neutre dans son micro de visière : ŕ Température à la surface du bloc : moins 272 degrés centigrades. Il y eut parmi les savants réunis dans la Salle des Conférences des murmures d’étonnement.
Léonova était mince et brune, nerveuse. C’était la plus jolie femme de l’expédition. Hoover la regarda en souriant. ŕ Quoi ! Vous ne l’avez pas reconnu ? Vous, une femme ?... C’est de l’or !... Brivaux avait mis en marche son appareil enregistreur. Le papier se déroulait. La mince ligne familière s’y inscrivait sans un crochet, sans une interruption. Le signal venait de l’intérieur de l’or. Ŕ 34 Ŕ UNE plus grande surface fut dégagée. Dans toutes les directions, elle continuait à s’enfoncer dans le sable.
