The Acropolis of Athens is a cosmodrome, where the Parthenon is the boarding station, offering attractive offers in bitGRcoins. An imaginary scenario of the future which the miraculous technological evolution may eventually make it come true. The Acropolis, a point of reference of human civilization, becomes the starting point of our future in space. A depiction of the future and the drive for technology to empower, to advance humankind.
