Morituri Nolumus Mori

Paul Kidby Astronauts from The Last Hero

  • Who are these men?
  • What do they do? How do you know?
  • What do you think they are going to do?
  • How are they feeling?
  • The words behind them (written in Latin) say ‘morituri nolumus mori’, which means ‘We who are about to die don’t want to’. What is their story? Why are they about to die? What mission are they being sent on? Who is sending them? Can they refuse?
