- Alma died. Take the day-.
These were the dry words received by the lonely Dmitry on board the Federátsiya XI. It could happen. It was already 11 years since his takeoff to Tau Ceti. He poured himself a glass of vodka. He thought about the time he had lost or rather changed for that mission. But, time and space are not perhaps the same thing? Distance. He typed the Earth's coordinates into the console and looked through the telescope 11 years, 10 months, 19 days, 14 hours and 6 minutes into the past. There he was on the outside of the Vostochni Cosmodrome, next to his blonde Alma. He fixed his eyes on the monitor and revived in peaceful simultaneity that kiss of farewell.
