Short story (1280 words) about an extraterrestrial being exiled to planet Earth with some interesting consequences for our space program. The tale is "Twilight Zone-esque" in both theme and writing style but captures some of the dysfunction of recent years in the space program. “Exile” is the fourth story in “The Extraterrestrial Anthology, Volume I: Temblar.”
