In 2130, an alien spaceship, Rama, entered our solar system. The first product of an alien civilisation to be encountered by man, it revealed many wonders to mankind ¿ but most of its mysteries remained

Sixty-six years later, a second approaching spacecraft was detected; four years on, the Ramans are definitely returning. But this time, Earth is ready.
And maybe now, with the arrival of Rama II, some of the questions posed by Rama will at last be answered.
