"While sitting on his carriage, the handsome Eros flies through the galaxy, looking for HIS star, the falling star Alpha. With the speed of lightning, he succeeds in diverting colossal meteorites. He slips between countless planets in the galaxy and in the end, he can touch Alpha, HIS destination and refuge, with the tips of his fingers.”

Harry Richards portrayed this space adventure musically. The melodies and rhythmic and sound effects are beautifully utilised and thus picture the admirable vision of Mankind on the infinity of the galaxy. This piece is very well suited for contests.
