there isn't very much more.
...Burton's statements
would appear to be

the expression
of a hallucinatory complex,

induced by atmospheric
influences ofthe planet,

plus obscure symptoms to which
the brain's cortical substance

contributed in some measure through
the excitation of associated zones.

This report in no way reflects
the actual facts.

Or almost in no way.
There's a different opinion
offered by Professor Messenger

who believes
that the information

supplied by Burton
could be true

and needs to be
thoroughly studied.

l saw everything l described
with my own eyes!

l would dare to venture
another opinion.

We are on the verge
of an immense discovery,

and it would be unwise to be
influenced by the fact that we base

our decision upon the observations
of an unqualified layman.

Every explorer may well envy
this pilot,

his presence of mind,
his talents of observation.

Moreover, given
the recent information,

we are bound morally
to press forward with our probes.

l can understand
how Professor Messenger feels,

however let's look back
at the long road we've traveled.

For all our work, the Solaris probes
are back where we began.

Years of effort
have proven useless.

All we know about Solaris
reminds me of a mountain
of separate facts

which we are unable to squeeze
into the framework of any conception.
