The travel is interrupted when his spaceship detects some object flying from Xi towards the Earth...
Sci-fi novel by Polish writer Janusz Zajdel, which on surface is just interstellar adventure, but obviously his intention was completely different. He wrote the book in 1979 when Poland was still a communist country and all the publications were under censorship scrutiny, so he used the setting is space to tell the story of how the Earth nations fall into the trap of dictatorship, with special attention to beginning of communism in Poland. Even though his intentions were to overpass the official censorship he described a simple formula how whole groups of people can be fooled into following completely insane propaganda, which in recent years have proved to be unfortunately very realistic when you take a look at the success of Donald Trump and other mindless populists.
