Synopsis: In the future, death row inmates are given the option to volunteer for scientific experiments in space. The volunteers are misled about the nature of the experiment, as well as the fact that their trip into space is one-way. Robert Pattinson plays Monte, & when we meet him he is the only surviving volunteer on the ship. He’s not alone, though. We learn that the experiments were on human fertility in space, which were apparently successful, as there’s a baby there with him.

As promised, here’s a link to conceptual artist Ólafur Eliasson’s page.

It’s finally time for some gd Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark! We don’t know about y’all but we are pretty dang pumped for this one. Join us as we discuss our childhood (and maybe adulthood) fear of Harold.
