As the glass smooth, 30cm spheroid pierced the atmosphere at hypersonic speed, the planet below reflected on its' mirror like surface.  Sub micron sized pores in the otherwise perfectly smooth, diamond hard skin dilated open... measuring atmospheric parameters and the rise in skin temperature.  Sensing an increase in atmospheric density, the alien device morphed into a larger and strangely aerodynamic shape.  Slowing to a few hundred kph, it continued to streak downward toward the surface of the brown-green planet.
 
2000 meters from the surface, the device shape shifted again... increasing surface area and atmospheric drag.  As it slowed, photon collecting dendrite molecules formed on the surface... turning the device iridescent, then transparent. Still in an almost vertical 300-kph dive, it narrowly avoided a flying creature. The startled animal heard and felt something fast streak by, but saw nothing.
 
500m above ground level and still at 300 kph, the virtually invisible alien machine leveled out and continued to fly parallel to the ground.   In seconds, hundreds of molecular sized sensors formed on the surface of the device, only slightly degrading the camouflage provided by the dendrite arrays.  The newly formed sensors scanned the landscape for selected IR and UV spectra.  Weak spectra indicated little biomass.
 
A few minutes later, now flying over vegetation, spikes in the spectra initiated a cascade of activity within the machine. As a continuous stream of 360 hyperspectral images imprinted on petabytes of multi-bit molecular data storage, another matrix of surface molecules formed a sky-aimed laser.  A burst of coherent photons penetrated the covering miles of atmosphere, and was collected by an array of dendrites... on a large orbiting spacecraft.
