Our hero travels all alone on a spaceship, through the universe, past galaxies, comets and planets to go visit his grandmother on Earth for the summer holidays. She takes him to visit an ancient cave, where he discovers handprints and drawings of unknown animals made by human beings, just like him. To top off his wonderful holiday she gives him mysterious objects which once belonged to his grandfather -- paper and crayons. On the way home he draws what he saw on his travels -- to the amazement of his fellow passengers.

Jairo Buitrago's story reminds us of what remains as everything changes. Rafael Yockteng's fabulous art, a tribute to Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, presents us a wonderful, diverse future in which space travel is common, though knowledge of the past is still a secret treasure to be discovered.
