In this future, Australia is the world’s new Superpower. Extreme weather patterns and severe drought conditions place a strain on Australia’s resources to provide food and water for their exploding population.
But what overshadows these dark times is the hope and excitement of seeing the Australian Spaceship Nexros successfully return from the first ever manned mission to Mars.
