The black box of a space station, near the Jelly Fish nebula, recorded the thoughts of an astronaut who died long ago.

A nebula, cloaked in thick smoke, throbs above a barren ground. On a solar panel, an insect chases after its frail trajectory, only trace of life in this place. Like a flash springs a black and white apparition : a child watches as a steam train passes, black monster from another world.

The astronaut relives his voyage, the black of the cosmos, the black of the train, reminiscence found in the black of the insect, landed here like the astronaut who once was this child.
