2035. Souls of the space conquerors of the past century are standing near the descent stage of the Apollo Lunar Module and observing how their courageous followers are getting ready for the new breakthroughs in space — for the first time ever man will fly beyond the lunar orbit, into deep space. Super heavy launch vehicle "SLS Block II" will send the crew of four aboard the Orion spacecraft to expand the limits of human reach, to rekindle humanity's pioneering spirit once again and to accomplish goals that no robotic probe can achieve.
