Geocache Description:


What appears to be a large saucer shaped meteorite crashes into the Pacific Ocean near Mexico, following an unexplained break-in and assault by a deranged man at a secret U. S. research facility. The crashed meteorite soon reveals itself as an even greater menace than first believed, with grave implications for the survival of the human race. Kronos, a gigantic slow-moving machine, methodically attacks power plants in Mexico, draining them of all their energy. In doing so Kronos grows in size each time, becoming larger as it consumes more and more energy. Kronos is discovered to be an accumulator sent by an alien race that has exhausted its own natural resources; they have sent it to drain all the Earth's available power and return it to their dying world. A scientist, under control of the unseen alien presence, suggests destroying Kronos by using an atomic bomb on it. This is done using a U. S. Air Force B-47 Bomber; but Kronos only absorbs the bomb's nuclear power, and the machine grows to titanic size. It now threatens to drain all the world's cities and starve the Earth of all power. Scientists devise a clever plan that reverses Kronos' polarity, causing it to feed upon itself, destroying the machine in a huge explosion; the Earth is saved...for now, but will the alien menace be a threat again someday?
