Are we talking about the war between Earth and Mars here? Tension is a physical term, but here the correct translation would be, gravitation between planets (or even better: gravitational forces). The Swahili Wiki gives graviti or kani ya mvutano for gravity.

When I read the English sentence "tension between planets" I thought it meant the pull planets have on each other in a physics sense. Not a political or social situation in a sci-fi sense.

Why is the "ya" necessary?
