A planet ripped from its own sun is approaching us. It may not come too close, but there are radio signals coming from it, maybe an automated message from a long-dead civilization, its secrets buried beneath the planet’s frozen atmosphere. A mission is planned to investigate. It was never going to be easy, but no one could have imagined what they would find and what dangers they would face… More

It should not come closer than the orbit of Pluto, not close enough to be a danger, to disrupt Earth or the other planets, but it will be close enough for the chance of sending probes to investigate it and learn more about the Universe.
An automated signal is detected coming from the planet far older than Earth and the type that might once have supported life before it was torn from its orbit.
A manned mission is planned, perhaps to bring back the secrets of an advanced alien race, a civilisation now buried under its frozen atmosphere and long dead - maybe…
