What is Doctor Who: The Ghost Monument?

Standard

“Space, is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. If you hold a lungful of air, you can survive in the total vacuum of space for about 30 seconds. But with space being really big and all, the chances of being picked up within that time are two to the power of two-hundred-and-sixty-seven-thousand, seven-hundred-and-nine to one against.
