(Pronunciation) Reading aloud

Image result for the cold equations












Practice these individual words














alone













indicate 














gauge














murmur 














launched 














Stardust













crept up














supply closet













radiated 


















He was not alone.

There was nothing to indicate the fact but the white hand of the tiny gauge on the board before him. The control room was empty but for himself; there was no sound other than the murmur of the drives — but the white hand had moved. It had been on zero when the little ship was launched from the Stardust; now, an hour later, it had crept up. There was something in the supply closet across the room, it was saying, some kind of a body that radiated heat.


It could be but one kind of a body — a living, human body.
