The Space Between: Where is humanity headed?

The Space Between is a sci-fi oneshot published in 2015′s Grand Jump Premium #3.

Heavily rooted in reality, the story begins with a thought: “Why there are some people who yearn so much for outer space?”. Indeed, why would someone chose the utter silence and overwhelming solitude of the vacuum of space? How can someone willingly leave the warmth of our homeland to cast himself in this hostile environment?

In the year 2020, NASA is dismantled, sold off to corporations. Support for space development moved from the government to the private sector, but economic stagnation curtailed investment in space. In 2023, when the President of IS&T, Carme Le Guin, died, only one space station remained with a lone astronaut left on board.
