Description

Debido a la colision con un meteorito, la Luna estalla en siete pedazos y el cielo de la Tierra deja de ser tal y como lo conocemos. Al contrario de lo que se podria pensar, las mareas no son el principal problema de la ausencia de la Luna, sino los restos de ella que siguen orbitando alrededor de nuestro planeta. Los cientificos calculan dos anos antes de que una incesante lluvia de meteoritos que durara unos 5000 anos caiga sobre la Tierra y haga que la vida en ella sea imposible. La humanidad marcha hacia el espacio, se crea una colonia alrededor de la Estacion Espacial Internacional con la idea de esperar a que el planeta vuelva a ser habitable.
