Somewhere, a desert area on the border of Siberia or elsewhere… In this desert a secret space base. At what time are we? There are made tests, laboratory studies. There is something going on up there in space. We want to go check out what satellites have photographed…Send men, prepare for it. Once there, we realize that nothing is simple, that the danger is present at every moment.Errors in calculations? A shuttle is hit by a debris of meteorite and ends up in orbit. Men will not come back…As an assembly of archival images and new images, the author realizes with Gravity, a photographic poem in homage to the first space missions, narrative fiction inspired by real events and maintaining the rumor about missing cosmonauts ghost in the early 60s .
