      1970s. At the end of the series it is revealed that Tyler's 2008 and 1973
      realities were both fictitious, created by the onboard computer of a
      spacecraft that is carrying the crew on the first ever manned mission to the
      planet Mars in 2035."

      "An astronomer of age, wealth, and erudition conducts classes in his
      home. His students are not always respectful, and he suffers their pranks
      and high jinks. Then, at noon, everything darkens and the astronomer hurries
      upstairs to his telescope. It is an eclipse of the sun, and through his
      glass, he sees a female moon coming toward a masculine sun, flirting as they
      move closer to what becomes a consummation. The heavens erupt with showers
      of stars that become women."
