Reading Room MEDUSA CHAIN Part 5

If you want to know what happened before one of the koolest space battles ever seen in comics begins...
Read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.
Then continue, with the codicil that it gets extremely gory and may be NSFW...

Why do the Earthians want radioactive material?
Find out tomorrow, in the surprising climax!
There's no explanation in the story as to what the "Fibonacci Sequence" is.
Named after the Middle Ages mathematician Leonardo of Pisa aka Fibonacci (although it was known in Indian science and arts at least a century earlier), the sequence begins with 1 and 1, or 0 and 1, depending on the starting point, and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two.
For sci-fi fans, the concept is also the basis for the famous "computing number of tribbles" scene in classic Star Trek's "The Trouble with Tribbles".

Plus, Fibonacci is also the person responsible for instituting Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc) as the standard in our mathematics, replacing the Roman numbers (I, II, III, IV, V, etc) used until then.
