They came from the planet GOSSES ANNSWETTE, the fourth planet in the sixth solar system.
The planet Gosses Annswette had yielded up a rich bounty of earthly minerals for thousands of years and the Go–Ann people had reaped a bounty by enriching their living conditions to the extent that almost nobody walked anywhere. They only rode on the ‘Verybike’, a small machine on which two people sat comfortably side-by-side and skimmed over the surface of the land or water about three feet off the surface, or the ‘Verycar’, a larger machine with six seats that could and did accommodate comfortably six large people and, like the ‘Verybike’, skimmed the land or water at a nice comfortable speed of about thirty miles per hour.
