The expensive terraforming process on the previously so mineral rich moon was eventually put to an halt. The incomes had began to decrease and the company where withdrawing their funding. The fading atmosphere grew thinner and thinner and most colonizers finally left due to the increasingly harsh and inhospitable climate. Soon only the brave and the enduring remained. Though in the end, even the most fierce and relentless was forced to leave - the pay off had gotten too small.
A lone miner poses for the camera for one last picture of the only home he's ever known. In the background the last fleet are seen as they take of never to return. The lonesome miner and his photographer are the last remaining humans on the once so flourishing, but now all too barren moon. Soon they too will take of - into the unknown, into the abyss, into the dark night.
