Another by the artist Letta Shtohryn is a speculative history of a future moon colony.

The narrative takes place simultaneously in the present and in the past and also in the future. The work explores a What-If scenario of a collaborative nature, following an urgency after a natural disaster, humanity collaborates on sending the most qualified person - the first female Soviet cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova to start a moon colony. The colony is human society's back up plan and another attempt to create a utopian world. All the viewer sees is the arrival and the progress or regress of potential utopia stays as mysterious as a possibility of its creation. The moving image artwork is a visual thought experiment and an unconscious gender bias experiment. The work is a feminist piece speculating on an alternative course of history without gender prejudice.
