It’s 2035. An Apollo capsule enters Earth’s atmosphere. Aboard it are Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin — the very same pair who returned to Earth seventy years earlier! Placed in charge of the investigation, Hélène, a NASA astronaut, can’t understand what she’s seeing. The two men do, indeed, seem to be who they claim to be. And so does their capsule…
When the two astronauts disappear, only to be found, dead and mummified, three hours later and thousands of kilometers away, a decision is made: Hélène must act as quickly as possible to launch an expedition to the Moon. What the investigators find there will lead them on a dangerous journey, and one that will take far longer than they expected…
