- 1. T-minus 15 seconds.
- 2. Guidance is internal.
- 3. Twelve, 11, 10, nine...
- 4. Ignition sequence starts.
- 5. Six, five, four,
- 6. three, two, one...
- 7. Zero. All engines running.
- 8. Liftoff. We have liftoff on Apollo 11.
- 9. Fuel and oxygen steady.
- 10. Cabin holding. Power is good.
- 11. Altitude, four miles now.
- 12. Velocity, 2, 195 feet per second.
- 13. Buzz aldrin: Good radar data.
- 14. Altitude now, 33,500 feet.
- 15. How are you looking? All your systems go?
- 16. They're a go. Hang tight.
- 17. You're a go to continue power descent.
- 18. Uh, Houston,
I'm getting a little fluctuation.
- 19. And, eagle,
Houston, we got data drop-outs.
- 20. Three feet down, two and a half.
Picking up some dust.
- 21. Okay. Engine stop.
- 22. The eagle has landed.
- 23. "Hurry, boy, it's waiting there for you"
- 24. it's gonna take a lot
to drag me away from you
- 25. there's nothing that a hundred men or more
- 26. could ever do
- 27. I bless the rains down in Africa
- 28. gonna take some time to do
the things we never had...
- 29. What does it even mean
to "miss the rains down in Africa "?
- 30. The lyrics are
"I bless the rains down in Africa."
- 31. What? No, they're not.
- 32. Uh, yes, they are.
- 33. It makes even less sense.
- 34. Well, I should know,
because I karaoke'd it at my wedding.
- 35. Ah. Well, I must have missed that.
- 36. I was in the zone.
Tearing it up on the dance floor.
- 37. You can't dance
to save your life.
- 38. Anyone ever tell you guys
you bicker like an old married couple?
- 39. That's 'cause she's my work wife.
- 40. Back to work, rookie.
- 41. Could ever do
- 42. I miss the rain down in Africa
- 43. I would like to thank you for spending
your honeymoon in space with us.
- 44. It was either space or Italy.
- 45. But Italy doesn't beat this view.
- 46. Imiss the rains
- 47. down in Africa
- 48. Brian. Oh, my god.
- 49. I miss the rains down in Africa
- 50. What the hell is that?
- 51. Brian!
- 52. - Marcus!
- Help me.
- 53. I'm losing air. I'm losing air.
- 54. Brian!
- 55. - Jo. Fowler, come in.
- Help me.
- 56. Marcus!
- 57. Oh, god.
- 58. Okay, hang on.
- 59. Marcus. Marcus, come in.
- 60. Marcus.
- 61. Marcus. God damn it.
- 62. Come on.
- 63. Come on.
- 64. No. Marcus...
- 65. I'm gonna get you home.
- 66. Our viewers might remember
- 67. the accident that happened
- 68. during a routine satellite
repair mission 18 months ago.
- 69. Today, a d. C. Court of appeals handed down
the final judgement on ex-astronaut
- 70. Brian Harper's wrongful termination suit
against NASA, his former employer.
- 71. We have obtained footage
of an internal NASA debriefing
- 72. where Harper claimed that the accident
- 73. was caused by a mysterious
technological space anomaly.
- 74. So, this so-called "swarm"
hit the shuttle?
- 75. Yes, for the 50th time.
- 76. It impacted in the mare crisium.
- 77. Commander Fowler,
a passing meteor or a solar flare
- 78. could have caused that kind
of disturbance, correct?
- 79. As you know,
I was unconscious, but...
- 80. Yes or no?
- 81. Can a solar flare cause
the kind of disturbance you witnessed
- 82. in the shuttle's on board system?
- 83. I guess, yes, technically. It could have.
- 84. Are you kidding me?
- 85. I lost my friend up there.
- 86. Because of negligence.
- 87. Harper was once celebrated
- 88. for his heroic landing
of the endeavour space shuttle
- 89. in spite of a complete meltdown
of all on board electronics.
- 90. Harper's legal options have been exhausted
- 91. and it's become clear that the accident
was the result of human error.
- 92. Today's loss is the final blow
in this very public fall from grace.
- 93. Hey, Sonny.
- 94. Do you need to be watching that again?
- 95. You know what?
- 96. Grandma is going to be
so excited to see you.
- 97. Dad's not coming, is he?
- 98. Your dad's got a lot going on right now.
- 99. I know. That's why we lost the house.
- 100. Maybe he'll come visit you
- 101. Would you like that?
- 102. I don't wanna move.
- 103. I hate New Jersey.
- 104. I'm sorry, sir. My mum always said
- 105. "it's better to beg for forgiveness
than ask permission."
- 106. Oh, crap. Was that red or blue?
- 107. Please tell me it was blue.
- 108. Observatorio nacional de Chile.
- 109. - Esteban?
- 110. - It's professor arrowood.
- 111. Isee you're logging in
to our telescope, professor.
- 112. Oh, yeah. I'm still tracking
our moon's orbit.
- 113. Would you mind sending last night's scans?
- 114. Use the other e-mail I gave you though,
not the school one.
- 115. Like always, sir.
- 116. Gotta run. Um, uh...
- 117. - Ciao.
- 118. Hola senoras.
- 119. Hola.
- 120. You're seven and a half minutes late.
I have to write this up.
- 121. - Hello, there.
- 122. What can I get you?
- 123. I'd like a pastrami madness...
- 124. And I would also like to ask you, dear,
- 125. what sauces do you serve
with the pastrami?
- 126. Oh, yeah. We've got barbecue,
honey mustard, ranch...
- 127. What the fuck!
- 128. What was the... the last one?
- 129. One madness coming up.
- 130. - We have a strict no phone policy.
- Can I take my 10?
- 131. Hello. My name is Dr. Kc houseman,
and I've uncovered what might be
- 132. the most important discovery
in human history.
- 133. I need you to patch me through
to the director of NASA immediately.
- 134. Honey, I sell t-shirts and toys.
- 135. I can patch you through
to customer service.
- 136. Please hold.
- 137. Hello?
- 138. - Black, two sugar.
- Oh, you read my mind. Thank you.
- 139. - What are you doing up so early?
- I could ask you the same.
- 140. Is everything okay?
- 141. Will be. So I'm gonna be home by dinner.
- 142. If I'm not, make sure Jimmy
does his homework,
- 143. - has a bath...
- You worry too much.
- 144. - I've got everything under control.
- Right. Talk soon.
- 145. Okay, don't everybody speak at once.
- 146. The moon's orbit has shifted.
- 147. I'm s orry 7
- 148. its orbital radius is decreasing.
- 149. - Well, that's not possible.
- We thought the same,
- 150. so we ran the numbers
and triple-checked our data.
- 151. So, the moon's been orbiting
around the earth for billions of years,
- 152. and now you're telling me
it's changed its course?
- 153. This isn't kindergarten, speak.
- 154. Right, uh, yes. So, on its last orbit,
- 155. our lunar reconnaissance probe
picked up something strange.
- 156. - What is that?
- We don't know.
- 157. We have photometric measurements of
gaseous spectra being emitted from inside.
- 158. Where is this?
- 159. Mare crisium.
- 160. How many times do I have to tell you?
- 161. I need to speak to deputy director Fowler
- 162. immediately.
- 163. But this is urgent.
- 164. I understand how
a restraining order works,
- 165. but if you people at NASA
won't listen to me,
- 166. how am I supposed to...
- 167. Hello?
- 168. What would elon do?
- 169. Oh, fuzz aldrin.
- 170. How many times have I told you
to use the litter box?
- 171. Oh, god.
- 172. "Astronaut day." This is today.
- 173. Fuzz, you're a damn genius!
- 174. Extra back scratches later.
- 175. Our teacher said
you're a washed up no-show.
- 176. She's complaining to someone.
- 177. You really don't look like an astronaut.
- 178. Well, are you going to
teach us about space or what?
- 179. Brian!
- 180. Brian!
- 181. Open the goddamn door.
You're three months late!
- 182. Shit.
- 183. I can hear you in there.
- 184. - Oh, shit. Oof!
- 185. To put it bluntly,
the moon is a megastructure.
- 186. Do you get it? Huge and artificial!
- 187. Whoever built this incredible thing
must think we're a pathetic species.
- 188. But don't even get me started on eclipses.
- 189. They're only possible because the moon
is exactly 400 times smaller than the sun,
- 190. and exactly 400 times closer to the earth.
- 191. Anyone know how that happened?
- 192. - Uh... 'Cause the moon's a megastructure?
- Yeah, someone's paying attention!
- 193. Let me tell you kids something.
- 194. When Apollo 12
dropped their empty fuel tank,
- 195. the impact made the moon ring like a bell.
- 196. Bong!
- 197. It rang for hours. And do you know why?
- 198. Because the damn moon is hollow.
- 199. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
- 200. Hello. I'm Brian Harper.
I'm supposed to be speaking here today.
- 201. Oh!
- 202. I'm Dr. Kc houseman, megastructurist.
It's a real honor.
- 203. - I'm sorry, who are you?
- 204. I've made a shocking discovery.
- 205. I need you to get me in touch
with NASA immediately.
- 206. Well, NASA and I aren't really
on speaking terms these days.
- 207. Well, that will change
- 208. when you tell them
that the moon is out of orbit.
- 209. Really?
- 210. Hey, kids, I'm gonna
go get this all sorted out.
- 211. Be right back.
- 212. Look at the data.
- 213. A natural body does not
change its orbit overnight.
- 214. Yeah, well, my natural body
is walking away from you right now.
- 215. There must be something wrong
with the moon's power source.
- 216. - Yeah, that must be it.
- I knew you'd believe me.
- 217. People usually think
I'm some kind of crackpot.
- 218. Hey, fellas, I need this guy
escorted off the premises
- 219. for impersonating me
and creeping out a bunch of school kids.
- 220. I was not impersonating you.
- 221. Sir, I'm going to have
to ask you to come with us.
- 222. Sorry, man. I got enough
on my plate without
- 223. some crazy guy thinking
the moon's out of orbit.
- 224. - I'm not crazy!
- 225. Read this.
- 226. All right, I'm on my way.
- 227. Oh. Hi.
- 228. Is this a butt dial?
- 229. Put on channel 16.
- 230. Well, I thought
we weren't speaking anymore.
- 231. Are you watching?
- 232. The two suspects
who have rolled through
- 233. at least two red lights...
- 234. Okay, looks like some idiot
tried to outrun the cops.
- 235. Yeah. That idiot is your son.
- 236. Sonny doesn't even have a car.
I'm still fixing up the mustang.
- 237. Tom gave him one for his birthday.
- 238. The car has stopped.
It's an expensive sports car.
- 239. Two young men that appear
to be in their 20s...
- 240. Oh, my god. Are you seeing this?
- 241. LAPD have them in custody.
- 242. Out for a joy ride and this day
is not going to end well for them.
- 243. There you have it.
Another high-speed car chase...
- 244. Next case, Sonny Neil Harper.
- 245. It says here you just turned 18.
- 246. Unfortunately, that makes you an adult
in the eyes of the law.
- 247. What? Hey, aren't you gonna say something?
- 248. Because of the reckless nature
of your actions
- 249. and the amount of illegal substances
present at the time of your arrest...
- 250. No, your honor. Those drugs weren't his.
- 251. They were just his buddy's.
They were on their way
- 252. - to a concert.
- Quiet in my court.
- 253. Well, he just got scared.
That's why he took off.
- 254. All right, that's it. Bailiff.
- 255. Your honor, excuse the actions
of my client's father.
- 256. We're prepared to pay
whatever the bail is right now.
- 257. Money's no object.
- 258. Well, I guess that makes
the defendant a flight risk.
- 259. Your honor, we do not mean
to offend the court in any way.
- 260. I'm postponing this
bail hearing till next week.
- 261. Bailiff, remove Mr. Harper.
- 262. Wait. You can't... don't listen to him.
- 263. You can't put him in jail for a week.
Please, I'm begging you.
- 264. Sonny, I'm gonna get you out.
- 265. If you're looking
for the deal of your life,
- 266. come to Tom Lopez Lexus,
- 267. where you're not just a customer,
we treat you like family.
- 268. Do you have any idea
how a courtroom operates?
- 269. Your lawyer was doing nothing.
- 270. Oh, so you know better than my lawyer
- 271. who's on a $50,000 retainer!
- 272. I thought money was no object, Tom.
- 273. Oh, no, no, no.
It is when you don't have any.
- 274. Nice move, by the way.
Sonny's now a flight risk.
- 275. Yeah. Oh, yeah.
This guy's unbelievable. Unbelievable.
- 276. All right, everyone, just cool it.
- 277. - Now, what the hell happened?
- Oh, what happened?
- 278. When Brian had to open his big mouth,
he had a little speech.
- 279. - Oh, my god. Go to hell, Tom.
- Yeah, you know what?
- 280. And you go to outer space,
- 281. - far away from us.
- 282. We're all just trying
to help Sonny right here.
- 283. Oh, wait, Brian's trying
to help Sonny? Since when?
- 284. Brenda, honestly, what do you
see in this schmuck?
- 285. Oh, you're a big man, aren't you?
- 286. How did this happen? Why wasn't he at usc?
- 287. He moved out when you
got him that new apartment.
- 288. So ask him.
- 289. He barely returns my calls anymore.
- 290. Welcome to the club.
- 291. Oh, kc, is that you?
- 292. Hey, mum. Rosmarinus officinalis.
- 293. A few studies have found
that smelling Rosemary
- 294. can improve your short-term memory.
- 295. Oh, that's lovely, dear. Thank you.
- 296. Thank you.
- 297. Oh, no, no, no, mum. Let me do that.
- 298. There we go. So, how are you feeling?
- 299. Great. But enough about me.
- 300. Everybody here knows
that my son is a genius working at NASA.
- 301. What?
- 302. I'm a nobody, mum.
- 303. Well, you're somebody to me.
- 304. I actually did make a discovery.
But it doesn't matter.
- 305. - No one will listen to me.
- Then make them.
- 306. Make them listen?
- 307. Oh, hello.
- 308. Are you new here?
- 309. No, mum.
- 310. It's me. It's kc.
- 311. Yourson.
- 312. Can someone tell me
what the hell I'm looking at?
- 313. The moon has entered an elliptical orbit.
- 314. Meaning?
- 315. It'll circle around us three times
before it reaches the roche limit
- 316. at 17,000 kilometers.
- 317. At that point, city-sized
pieces of moon debris
- 318. will rain down on us.
- 319. So we have three months?
- 320. Not exactly.
- 321. As the moon moves closer to us,
our months will begin to shorten.
- 322. We've estimated a timeline
of roughly three weeks.
- 323. Maybe less than that.
- 324. We have some new high-res
scans that just came in.
- 325. Jesus Christ.
- 326. Is that a hole in the crater floor?
- 327. So what are our options here?
- 328. We have to go back to the moon.
We have to see what's going on up there.
- 329. How do we carry crew?
- 330. I've already talked
to my contacts in Europe.
- 331. We can potentially get a stc-62
en route by tomorrow.
- 332. Potentially? Great.
- 333. I'll just brief the president on a maybe.
- 334. In the meantime, everyone
keep your mouths shut.
- 335. Um...
- 336. That might be a problem.
- 337. It's, uh, trending on Twitter
as of two minutes ago.
- 338. It's your ex-husband.
- 339. Thank you.
- 340. Hey, Doug, I'm a little busy
right now. What is it?
- 341. Is it true?
- 342. Tell me there's been some kind of mistake.
- 343. I wish I could,
- 344. but the math actually checks out.
- 345. So, it's happening.
- 346. How's Jimmy?
- 347. Well, you'd know
if you saw him once in a while.
- 348. Please don't start.
I call him all the time.
- 349. Sorry, I gotta run.
- 350. - Your honor.
- Jesus Christ!
- 351. I guess hanging up wasn't clear enough.
- 352. I just need two minutes of your time.
- 353. You have till I reach the door.
- 354. I got a classic bike
and my son's vintage mustang
- 355. that I can use as collateral
till I get money, whatever you need.
- 356. Are you trying to bribe me?
In a courthouse?
- 357. - I just wanna get my son back.
- The courts are closed.
- 358. - Will they reopen Monday?
- Not likely.
- 359. What's that supposed to mean?
- 360. Look, I'm just trying
to get the heck outta here
- 361. before the traffic becomes a nightmare.
- 362. - I suggest you do the same.
- Breaking news.
- 363. We go now live to the NASA press briefing
- 364. to discuss the moon being out of orbit.
- 365. Astronomers
have noticed bright lights
- 366. on the lunar surface lately.
- 367. Do you know the identity
of the anonymous source?
- 368. Everyone, please.
- 369. We're confident that
the lunar recon mission
- 370. will provide the necessary data
to address the problem.
- 371. There's no need to panic.
That's all for now.
- 372. You just lied to the whole country.
- 373. Get in line, you work for me.
- 374. I work for the American people,
and you're keeping them in the dark.
- 375. Yeah.
- 376. NASA is
completely downplaying this.
- 377. Imagine the tides on the coast...
- 378. Growing hundreds of times larger,
moving hundreds of miles inland,
- 379. then you'll get an idea
of what we're in for.
- 380. Some of
your harshest critics claim
- 381. - that you're exaggerating...
- 382. All flights to the west coast
have been cancelled.
- 383. And I'm stuck in traffic.
- 384. Oh, I'm so sorry.
- 385. Moving to higher ground
- 386. it's the only possible chance
of surviving this.
- 387. Honey. We should go to Aspen.
- 388. What about Sonny?
We can't just leave him there.
- 389. No, no, no.
We're not gonna leave him.
- 390. The lawyer's gonna get him out
the moment the judge sets bail.
- 391. And I'll find a way
to get him to Colorado.
- 392. - We're going to Colorado?
- No. No, Tom.
- 393. Earth's stronger gravity
will completely break the moon apart
- 394. and send thousands
- 395. of mile-sized chunks
raining down upon the planet.
- 396. Okay, okay, okay.
Hey, Google. Turn off the TV.
- 397. Girls, go pack.
- 398. Turning the TV off.
- 399. Girls, go pack your snow boots.
Come on. Hurry up.
- 400. We have to start thinking about the girls.
- 401. And trust me,
we are not gonna forget about Sonny.
- 402. T-minus five seconds.
- 403. Four, three,
- 404. two, one.
- 405. Ignition.
- 406. This is it.
- 407. The entire world is holding
its collective breath
- 408. as the joint missions between NASA
- 409. and the European space agencies
- 410. take to the skies today.
- 411. Nations remain hopeful
- 412. of NASA's lunar mission
- 413. as frantic shoppers continue
to stockpile supplies
- 414. as mounting moon terror fuels
- 415. the mass migration
out of metropolitan areas.
- 416. Civilization
has already taken a serious nosedive.
- 417. Looting has become
a favorite pastime in the United Kingdom.
- 418. Fear and panic
have overtaken our city.
- 419. The national guard struggles
to restore some kind of order.
- 420. Stay awake, my brothers and sisters.
- 421. As the stars fall from heaven, stay awake!
- 422. These armed religious fanatics
- 423. have racked up thousands of followers
all over the country.
- 424. In other news,
- 425. are now exploring the possibility
that perhaps the moon could be
- 426. some sort of orbital megastructure.
- 427. A term first popularized
by fringe astronomers,
- 428. megastructures describe
artificial planet-sized objects
- 429. said to be powered by captured stars.
- 430. This once radical possibility
- 431. is now gaining traction
among a scientific community
- 432. desperate for answers.
- 433. Come out! Hands up!
- 434. Easy, easy.
- 435. You're that astronaut guy
from the other day.
- 436. I accidentally threw away
some very important papers.
- 437. Lucky for you,
sanitation hasn't come by all week.
- 438. Yeah, it's, uh, lucky for me.
- 439. "Orbital distance"?
- 440. Are you looking for this?
- 441. My fellow megastructurists,
- 442. if you're watching this,
then you know by now
- 443. a huge problem is heading our way,
- 444. and we're the only ones who can solve it.
- 445. An emergency meeting is being called,
our usual place immediately.
- 446. L.A. palm hotel. Today. 1800. Free bagels.
- 447. Lunar orbit insertion complete.
- 448. Houston, we're approaching
the mare crisium.
- 449. Initiating capsule rotation.
- 450. Affirmative.
- 451. Fifteen degrees. 30.
- 452. Forty-five. 70.90.
- 453. Stc-62 in position.
- 454. Houston, you seeing this?
- 455. Copy, we see it.
- 456. Prepare to deploy the probe.
- 457. Affirmative. Releasing probe.
- 458. Stand by for stage two.
- 459. Dropping steadily.
- 460. Iposted on every platform.
- 461. Why don't those idiots at NASA
see the real problem?
- 462. Because they obviously haven't read
famed cosmologist Carl sagan's work,
- 463. where he clearly states
- 464. that a natural satellite
cannot be a hollow object.
- 465. I... I've been saying that
for years, Dr. Houseman.
- 466. That doesn't help us now, does it, Ziggy?
- 467. This room is full of the smartest
- 468. and most visionary people in the world.
- 469. We all know the moon's
a constructed object. Okay?
- 470. There has to be a way to fix it.
- 471. Come on, people, think outside the box.
- 472. Oswald did it.
- 473. Oh, damn it, Gary. Not now.
- 474. Mr. Harper.
- 475. What are you doing here?
- 476. Probably making a huge mistake.
- 477. Can we talk?
- 478. How did you know I was here?
- 479. Your website.
- 480. You read my blog?
- 481. You knew all this was
happening before anyone.
- 482. Before NASA. How?
- 483. Why bother?
- 484. - You're just gonna say I'm crazy again.
- Try me.
- 485. Well, for years I've been
studying distant planets,
- 486. searching for one of
these orbiting megastructures.
- 487. But I never could have imagined
- 488. there'd be one right here,
in our own backyard.
- 489. Ever heard of a Dyson sphere?
- 490. Yeah.
- 491. Every megastructure has a rigid shell
built around a power core.
- 492. Most likely a captured white dwarf
that's being harnessed for energy.
- 493. Something obviously happened
to the one inside our moon
- 494. and that's why it's veering off course.
- 495. Yeah, still crazy.
- 496. Why did you come here
if you're not going to believe me?
- 497. 'Cause I know what it's like
to try to tell people something
- 498. and have no one listen.
- 499. Probe depth
has reached 24.5 kilometers.
- 500. Twenty-five kilometers.
- 501. Holding steady at 25.6 kilometers.
- 502. Still holding.
- 503. - It stopped?
- It's coming back.
- 504. Twenty-four kilometers.
- 505. Twenty.
- 506. Fifteen.
- 507. We got another problem.
- 508. - The moon's orbit is shifting again.
- 509. It's correcting itself.
- 510. Uh, Houston,
- 511. we're experiencing
some kind of malfunction.
- 512. Houston, do you copy?
Houston, do you copy?
- 513. - What the hell is that?
- I don't know.
- 514. Hull breach. Helmets.
- 515. In breaking news,
- 516. NASA has just corrected
- 517. their initial projection...
- 518. Of the moon's path over earth.
- 519. The governor has just ordered
- 520. the mass evacuation
of the entire west coast,
- 521. recommending that people
urgently head to higher ground.
- 522. Guys!
- 523. The... the... the tide, it's coming.
- 524. Come on. We gotta get outta here.
- 525. Wait!
- 526. Everybody, upstairs. Go!
Everybody, get up!
- 527. Come on! Go, go!
- 528. Kc, what are you doing?
- 529. Kc!
- 530. Kc, hang on!
- 531. I can't swim! Dr. Houseman!
- 532. Hang on!
- 533. He's right there. He's right there.
- 534. Hang on!
- 535. Come on!
- 536. Come on.
- 537. Come on.
- 538. It's some kind of self-aware,
- 539. Like a machine?
- 540. Machines don't have
intelligence. This does.
- 541. It's everything we feared about al.
- 542. And it knew we were coming.
- 543. So it was probably drawn out by
the electronic signature of the capsule.
- 544. Everything we thought we knew
about the nature of the universe
- 545. has just gone out the window.
- 546. We're not prepared for this.
- 547. Deb, don't argue,
just pack your stuff. We're leaving.
- 548. So you're just gonna quit?
- 549. What do you want me to do?
- 550. I want you to help us figure out what
the hell this thing is, so we can beat it.
- 551. We're not equipped for that.
You've seen what we're up against.
- 552. You've been gunning for my job
for a while, Fowler.
- 553. Congrats, it's yours.
- 554. What are you not telling me?
You've got q clearance.
- 555. The hole is in the mare crisium.
- 556. That's what the Harper
hearings were all about.
- 557. If you're serious about going
down the NASA rabbit hole,
- 558. you should pay a visit to holdenfield.
- 559. Here's your clearance.
- 560. How did you get down here?
- 561. Hutchings gave me this.
- 562. I'll need all records of stx-136a.
- 563. You waiting for something?
- 564. What the hell is that?
- 565. I feel it.
- 566. What are you doing?
- 567. Holdenfield?
- 568. You're not supposed
to have that, 136 Alpha.
- 569. That's classified. Top secret.
- 570. Why is NASA lying about all this?
- 571. July 20th, 1969.
- 572. "One small step for man,
- 573. "one giant leap for..." Yada, yada, yada.
- 574. In school, you were taught that Apollo 11
lost contact with mission control
- 575. for two minutes. Not true.
- 576. Mission control
cut their feed to the world
- 577. because they found something on that day.
- 578. Strange pulsating lights
- 579. emanating from beneath the moon's crust.
- 580. It was me who was assigned
to keep it under wraps.
- 581. The Apollo crew played ball.
- 582. Just Brian Harper wouldn't.
- 583. They called him crazy.
- 584. Threw him out with the trash.
- 585. You're telling me that the moon
- 586. was effectively the biggest
cover-up in human history?
- 587. Biggest? Probably.
- 588. You had blood on your hands, too.
- 589. Yeah, well, anyone who follows orders
- 590. pretty much always does, don't they?
- 591. That technology,
it's light years ahead of us.
- 592. Compared to that, we're the stone age.
- 593. The only shot we had to stop it
- 594. was zulu X-ray 7.
- 595. It was shut down. Shelved.
- 596. For budgetary reasons.
- 597. Well, commander, I have pressing business
- 598. waiting for me on my desk.
- 599. The sand in the hourglass
is dropping quickly for all of us.
- 600. It's as good as gone.
- 601. I'm really sorry.
- 602. Really.
- 603. Damn it.
- 604. What's wrong?
- 605. I can't reach my son.
- 606. Word is, um, you're an astronaut,
- 607. so you must know that
- 608. the entire inside
of the moon is full of produce.
- 609. Kc, can you tell birkenstocks here
- 610. that I'm dangerously close
to hurling him out a window?
- 611. Okay, well, let's find an empty room.
- 612. How do you think
the incas got their potatoes?
- 613. Sorry.
- 614. You said that if we can
destroy this thing...
- 615. We have a theory that the moon
might return to its original orbit.
- 616. And how do you propose we do that exactly?
- 617. You said so yourself,
using a modern spacecraft is not feasible.
- 618. I am working on a solution.
- 619. We appreciate your effort,
- 620. but this is now a military operation.
- 621. We'll take it from here.
- 622. Doug! Wait!
- 623. If you launch nukes,
- 624. the global fallout
is gonna kill everybody.
- 625. Who said anything about nukes?
- 626. You are making a big mistake here.
- 627. Please, let me put together a plan.
- 628. We have a plan.
- 629. Look, why don't you and Jimmy
come with me to Colorado?
- 630. You'll be safe there.
- 631. What are you asking me to do?
Quit? Give up?
- 632. I'm asking you to think about our son.
- 633. I am thinking about our son.
- 634. Where is he?
- 635. Uh, jail.
- 636. He's a good kid, just made a mistake.
- 637. I was always doing stupid things.
- 638. Don't know how my parents put up with me.
- 639. We never had a lot of money,
but sometimes we'd all get fish 'n chips,
- 640. sit out on the dock
and just watch the stars for hours.
- 641. That was when I first dreamed
of being an astronaut.
- 642. After my father passed,
- 643. my mum wanted to move back to the states.
- 644. My dad laughed when I told him
I wanted to be an astronaut.
- 645. Didn't believe in you?
- 646. Oh, that's putting it lightly.
- 647. I worked my ass off to get into NASA.
- 648. I read all about your last mission.
- 649. You saw alien tech.
- 650. And NASA insisted it was a meteor.
- 651. But it wasn't?
- 652. It was unlike anything I'd ever seen.
- 653. And, you know, the worst part
- 654. is I lost a friend up there.
- 655. And it was my fault.
- 656. Oh, come on. How was it your fault?
- 657. You saved the shuttle. You saved Fowler.
- 658. A lot of good that did.
- 659. I'm divorced, broke, my son hates me.
- 660. God, I am so jealous.
- 661. Alien tech.
- 662. It's freakin' awesome.
- 663. Extreme weather is hammering
the eastern seaboard and Gulf coast
- 664. with high tides and flooding
- 665. wreaking havoc
on residents and properties.
- 666. Folks, if you aren't
already on high ground,
- 667. you better get there as soon as possible.
- 668. Um, as an exchange student,
- 669. are you sure they're going
to let me into the bunker?
- 670. Yeah. Don't worry about it.
I'll take care of it.
- 671. Thank you.
- 672. And loss of life
in populated areas.
- 673. As you can see, the images
coming out of Bangladesh
- 674. - are simply horrific
- mom, are we gonna die?
- 675. No. No, sweetheart.
- 676. I know all of this that's happening
seems so scary,
- 677. but we are not gonna die. Okay?
- 678. We're all gonna be safe
with dad in Colorado.
- 679. Are you sending more rockets to the moon?
- 680. No. No. You know why?
- 681. Because we don't...
We don't have any more of these.
- 682. Why not?
- 683. Because they're all in museums.
- 684. And, um...
- 685. I love you, sweetheart.
- 686. Hey, Doug.
- 687. What is a zx-7?
- 688. Who told you about that?
- 689. Well, come on. What is it?
- 690. Zulu X-ray seven
was a prototype emp device.
- 691. But the program got disbanded.
- 692. Okay, well, it's clear that
this thing inside the moon
- 693. is technological in nature, right?
- 694. I assume they thought an emp
could take the thing out.
- 695. We don't have a way into space
so this is a moot point.
- 696. Okay, well, how far along was the testing?
- 697. Jocinda, NASA isn't cleared
for another mission.
- 698. How about you let me worry about that?
- 699. GPS is locked on l2.
- 700. Compensate latitude by minus 4.5 west.
- 701. 4.5 degrees. Copy.
- 702. Reducing to 10 knots.
- 703. Open the door.
- 704. Yeah?
- 705. - Brian Harper?
- 706. We need you to come with us.
It's a matter of national security.
- 707. All right. Give me a second.
- 708. I'm not going anywhere without him.
- 709. Yeah, we're a team.
- 710. Oh. Sorry, I'm sorry, miss.
- 711. Sorry.
- 712. Oh, sorry, sorry.
- 713. It's been nearly three hours.
That can't be a good sign.
- 714. What's with all the pill popping?
You're really sweating over there.
- 715. - You okay?
- 716. No. I broke into uc irvine multiple times.
- 717. I lost two of their mops.
- 718. They probably know.
- 719. Oh, you gotta be kidding me. No.
- 720. Look, I don't want to be here
any more than you do.
- 721. Sit down.
- 722. No, no, no. I don't have to
take orders from you anymore.
- 723. I'm just curious, you still
screwing over your friends?
- 724. - Oh, you talking about me?
- How many of these
- 725. - wonderful people here...
- 726. Guys!
- 727. Who the hell is this?
- 728. Dr. Kc houseman, ma'am.
- 729. I wrote you several e-mails,
but you never responded.
- 730. What's this all about?
- 731. Follow me.
- 732. What you're about to see,
- 733. only a handful of people
have ever seen before.
- 734. Kc knew the moon was out of orbit
before you guys did.
- 735. Social media went wild
when I posted my research.
- 736. - You're the "unidentified source"?
- Oh, yes.
- 737. Oh, god.
- 738. Mosley, pull up the tunnel, please.
- 739. Our readings estimate its depth
to be over 25 kilometers.
- 740. That's the mare crisium.
- 741. Exactly.
- 742. I think whatever happened
all those years ago
- 743. is directly responsible
for what's happening right now.
- 744. Oh, so you believe me now?
- 745. I saw your helmet cam.
- 746. It's a little late for an apology.
- 747. We were both lied to.
- 748. The international mission
didn't just go sideways.
- 749. It was attacked.
- 750. A technological life form.
- 751. No effin' way.
- 752. During the attack,
the moon was attempting
- 753. to return to its original orbit,
- 754. until this thing
went back inside the moon.
- 755. This is what I've been trying to tell you.
- 756. It's doing something
to the megastructure's power core.
- 757. - Excuse me. The megastructure?
- Please don't ask.
- 758. It's highly likely
our moon was built by aliens.
- 759. We have to get inside
and make first contact.
- 760. I told you not to ask.
- 761. All right, look, we're planning
a mission to attack this thing.
- 762. The only problem is,
is it recognizes our technology.
- 763. Which is why we need you.
- 764. Well, I never thought
I'd hear you say that again.
- 765. You're the only pilot
to ever land a shuttle without power.
- 766. Not exactly a hirable skill.
- 767. Well, it is right now,
- 768. which is why I'm offering you
your job back,
- 769. and I'm personally
asking you for your help.
- 770. Say yes, Brian.
- 771. I don't know.
- 772. I got a lot of my own problems down here.
- 773. And the moon falling onto earth
- 774. isn't one of them?
- 775. I was wrong to bring you here. I am done.
- 776. How do you plan on getting up there?
- 777. You know all of our shuttles
are in museums.
- 778. The endeavour is right here in la.
- 779. Plus, the Chinese are offering
their prototype moon lander.
- 780. I know it sounds completely crazy.
- 781. No, no, what you showed us was crazy.
- 782. This is a whole other level of insane.
- 783. Ought to be right up your alley then, no?
- 784. If I do this,
- 785. I'm gonna need something in return.
- 786. Did you reach him?
- 787. Yeah. It's being handled.
- 788. Sonny's gonna meet us at vandenberg.
- 789. Looks like we missed the party.
- 790. I didn't even get an invite.
- 791. At least somebody's
on the same page as us.
- 792. Hey, hey. Look what I found!
- 793. Maybe we can use it as toilet paper.
- 794. - What?
- Take a look around you, man.
- 795. - It's worthless.
- Whatever. Let's go.
- 796. Attention,
- 797. we are asking everyone
to please clear the streets
- 798. and to remain indoors...
- 799. Dude, dude, we gotta get outta here. Go!
- 800. Yeah. This is really,
really exciting, isn't it?
- 801. As leaders
around the world struggle for answers,
- 802. new images have surfaced
suggesting that NASA
- 803. might have plans for a new lunar mission.
- 804. But so far, NASA and the white house have
not responded to requests for comment.
- 805. And this is just in
from our correspondent in Southeast Asia.
- 806. Apparently, the moon is causing
a drastic increase in tectonic activity.
- 807. Reports of countless earthquakes
and volcanic eruptions keep pouring in.
- 808. That's weird.
- 809. What's weird?
- 810. The moon doesn't have
enough gravity to do that,
- 811. no matter how close it gets.
- 812. You still don't get it.
- 813. We're dealing with a megastructure.
- 814. Your rules don't apply anymore.
- 815. We've been here how long now,
and nobody's bothered to paint over that?
- 816. It's kinda growing on me.
- 817. Hey, where's Sonny?
- 818. I sent a ground crew to the prison, okay?
- 819. But I haven't heard anything
in a few days.
- 820. Why the hell didn't you say that?
- 821. 'Cause I need you to be focused
on what's happening right here.
- 822. Megastructures move through space
without an exhaust system.
- 823. The moon has an engine?
- 824. Hold that thought. I'll be right back.
- 825. Well, at least your husband
came through with that.
- 826. Ex-husband.
- 827. - Colonel.
- Director Fowler.
- 828. Commander Harper.
I'm lieutenant colonel Reed.
- 829. This is captain Avery.
- 830. We've been briefed by general Davidson.
- 831. We need to walk you
through the arming procedure.
- 832. I'm an astronaut, not a soldier.
- 833. I'll get you where you need to go,
- 834. but I'm not setting off any bomb.
- 835. We don't expect you to.
- 836. We'll accompany you on the mission
and activate the device,
- 837. but you need to be familiar with
the process should complications arise.
- 838. The bomb's security
and authentication systems
- 839. have been removed.
- 840. Meaning we can arm it
without approval from the ground.
- 841. Using a remote trigger.
- 842. Two clicks, then push this down and hold.
- 843. Triggers the device to go off.
- 844. - Simple.
- Yeah. Simple.
- 845. Nearing vandenberg, captain. Over.
- 846. Roger that.
- 847. Should've gotten you the jumbo platter.
- 848. Thank you for getting me out.
- 849. You can thank your dad.
- 850. Plan is to take off
when the moon is closest to earth.
- 851. Now, since we're dealing
with an unpredictable target,
- 852. navigation is gonna be crucial.
- 853. Our navigator, Carl Saunders,
is gonna be making sure we hit the Mark,
- 854. flight engineer Hannah Martin
will run real-time calculations
- 855. to ensure that we intercept the moon.
- 856. And once we clear the atmosphere,
we'll begin the refueling process.
- 857. Thankfully our friends at SpaceX
- 858. have a propellant depot
currently in orbit.
- 859. I love elon.
- 860. So once we're all powered off,
- 861. we'll use our thrusters
to position ourselves
- 862. over the mare crisium.
- 863. Our Chinese friends
have Jerry-rigged the on board systems
- 864. so that we can fly it without electronics.
- 865. So we'll park the rover section
of the module with the bomb inside,
- 866. then switch the electronics back on
- 867. and use it as bait
to lure this thing out of its hole.
- 868. Then, you guys will pull the trigger
- 869. and kill it.
- 870. And then, hopefully,
we all can go back home.
- 871. If we still have one left.
- 872. What did I say?
- 873. Sonny. Oh, my god, son.
- 874. - Thank god you're okay.
- Thank you.
- 875. - Hold on.
- 876. Just so I'm clear,
you're gonna take a bomb into space.
- 877. And why are you even here? You hate NASA.
- 878. Just try to understand. If there's even
- 879. the smallest chance
that this could work...
- 880. - What if it doesn't?
- It has to.
- 881. I want you to have a world
you can grow up in.
- 882. Where you can be a better man than me.
- 883. Hey.
- 884. What have you seen
since you've been there?
- 885. The space shuttle and stuff.
- 886. Do you miss me?
- 887. Yeah, I really miss you.
- 888. I miss you, too, my little man.
- 889. Is mom around?
- 890. Mom, it's dad.
- 891. Wow, he's getting good.
- 892. Yeah?
- 893. I held up my end of the bargain.
- 894. I want you and Jimmy in Colorado.
- 895. We are. We're gonna be
airlifted out of here
- 896. as soon as the shuttle launches.
- 897. Look, if anyone finds out
- 898. - what I've done for you...
- They won't.
- 899. You just make sure
your trigger-happy buddies
- 900. keep their hands off the nukes.
- 901. Sorry, guys.
- 902. Out of 2%. I looked everywhere.
- 903. Nah, this is great. Thanks, man.
- 904. You know, I almost got a job at NASA.
- 905. What department?
- 906. Jannofial
- 907. Get out!
- 908. Hang on!
- 909. Is this your current
projected lunar orbit?
- 910. - Yeah.
- 911. This obviously isn't accounting
for the moon's increased mass.
- 912. Look at all this seismic activity
in the wake of its orbit.
- 913. We know the moon's surface gravity
is 1.62 meters squared.
- 914. At least it used to be.
- 915. So this must be wrong.
- 916. I'm sorry, director Fowler,
we have a problem.
- 917. Just what we need, a damn earthquake.
- 918. We're losing coolant.
- 919. Well, there has to be a way to fix it.
- 920. Not here. We would need
the entire team at michoud
- 921. to rebuild something like this.
- 922. Well, then get on the horn
and find somebody who can help us.
- 923. Anyone that can help us is already here.
- 924. Look, we have to think about
- 925. letting all of these people here
get to safety.
- 926. To safety?
- 927. These people here won't have a planet
unless we figure something out.
- 928. Brian, we're down an engine.
- 929. Launching is no longer an option.
- 930. Thanks for bringing me here.
- 931. May I have everyone's attention.
- 932. You've all done more
than we ever could have asked.
- 933. You have my deepest thanks
- 934. along with the thanks
of the entire country.
- 935. But it's now time for you to go home.
- 936. I'm ordering the immediate evacuation
of all personnel from vandenberg.
- 937. You'll meet up with
your families in Colorado.
- 938. Dad.
- 939. I'm sorry it didn't work out.
- 940. Story of my life.
- 941. Thanks for getting me out of jail.
- 942. Let's get our stuff. It's time to go.
- 943. Time's up.
- 944. Chopper's ready. Come on. Let's go.
- 945. Go ahead. I'll meet you out there.
- 946. Why are you guys still here?
- 947. Director Fowler,
when it comes back around,
- 948. the moon's gravity will be
over 80% of the earth's pull.
- 949. I know how it sounds,
but we checked Dr. Houseman's data.
- 950. The numbers are solid.
- 951. Show the director our new simulations.
- 952. We have to pull up our launch window.
- 953. Guys, where have you been? Look.
- 954. There is no launch window.
- 955. The mission's over.
- 956. Wait. Wait a minute.
- 957. How do you feel about flying the shuttle
with only two engines?
- 958. It can't be done.
- 959. If we launch when the moon
is directly above us,
- 960. the increased gravitational pull
should give the shuttle a boost,
- 961. giving you a really good
chance of getting into orbit.
- 962. You evacuated my entire flight crew.
- 963. I can't fly the shuttle alone.
- 964. That's why I'm going with you.
- 965. My guys will stay back
and handle the launch.
- 966. But we've got a very narrow
window of time here.
- 967. You'd have to be ready to go
in exactly 28 minutes.
- 968. You fly and I'll navigate.
- 969. Just like old times.
- 970. - What do you say?
- What about the emp device?
- 971. It's still in the moon lander.
- 972. I mean, we lost the crew
- 973. so we're gonna have
to set it off ourselves,
- 974. but you paid attention, right?
- 975. Two clicks, then press
the button down and hold.
- 976. Triggers the device to go off. Simple.
- 977. You figured all this out?
- 978. And he calculated
our new launch trajectory.
- 979. You know, without electronics,
- 980. we're gonna need to make
split-second calculations up there.
- 981. Plus, we lost our flight engineer.
- 982. Mm.
- 983. No. No, no, no, guys.
- 984. I'm not cleared for this.
- 985. Well, I'm the acting director of NASA,
- 986. so I just cleared you. Congrats.
- 987. Yeah, but...
- 988. I've got ibs.
- 989. Irritable bowel syndrome.
- 990. - Mm.
- I get motion sickness, too.
- 991. You said you always wanted
to be an astronaut.
- 992. I have debilitating anxiety.
- 993. Kc, if the moon really
is what you think it is,
- 994. we're gonna need a megastructurist.
- 995. Suit up.
- 996. Expedite. Let's move, move!
- 997. So, I've put your
dad's number in here, okay?
- 998. He knows you're coming.
- 999. - I know I wasn't always easy.
- That makes two of us.
- 1000. You know this was all your idea, right?
- 1001. You're so smart.
- 1002. But now, I need you to be brave.
- 1003. I don't want you to go.
- 1004. I love you
- 1005. More than
all the stars in the sky.
- 1006. Even more than the whole milky way?
- 1007. Way more.
- 1008. Way more.
- 1009. Take good care of him.
- 1010. Be safe up there.
- 1011. Take this.
I hope you don't need it.
- 1012. Stay off the main roads.
- 1013. Dad, I...
- 1014. You do know how to start a car, right?
- 1015. I should warn you.
My license has been revoked.
- 1016. We need to go now.
- 1017. Mum, you're never gonna
believe where I'm going.
- 1018. Jack, when are you coming home for supper?
- 1019. Mum, this is kc. Your son.
- 1020. You told me to make them
listen, and they did.
- 1021. Where'd you get these suits
from? A thrift shop?
- 1022. Early Apollo. No electronics,
we should be okay.
- 1023. "Should be"? That's encouraging.
- 1024. Let's go. Let's go.
- 1025. - Mrs. Houseman, we need to leave.
- 1026. Mum? Let me speak to the nurse.
- 1027. - Heho?
- Are you evacuating?
- 1028. Any minute now.
- 1029. Please take care of my mum.
- 1030. Of course.
- 1031. Sir, we have to hurry.
- 1032. This is gonna be really tight, okay?
- 1033. Turn on apu one, two and three.
- 1034. Apus active.
- 1035. Reaction control system, active.
- 1036. Autopilot active. T-minus 30.
- 1037. Endeavour, you have got
- 1038. a big-ass gravity wave coming your way.
- 1039. You have to launch now. Over.
- 1040. Did he say "gravity wave"?
- 1041. Guys, get out. T-minus ten,
- 1042. nine, eight, seven...
- 1043. Screw it, go for ignition.
- 1044. This is gonna be close.
- 1045. We're underwater, guys.
- 1046. Get back in the car.
- 1047. Our ascent trajectory is off.
- 1048. The right booster's losing thrust.
- 1049. Thruster's down to zero.
- 1050. We're drifting right. We're at 11 degrees.
- 1051. Twelve. 13.
- 1052. We better do something fast
or we're gonna crash down!
- 1053. I knew I should never have come!
- 1054. Let's lose the other booster
- 1055. and see if the moon can
pull us the rest of the way.
- 1056. Kc, can we do it?
- 1057. Uh... um...
Come on, buddy.
- 1058. Current momentum... gravity...
- 1059. - Can we do it?
- Oh, I don't know!
- 1060. Go for srb separation.
- 1061. Completed.
- 1062. Oh, god, if this doesn't work, we're dead.
- 1063. Well, yeah, this better work.
- 1064. Main tank's down to zero.
- 1065. - Jo, get rid of it.
- Separating main tank.
- 1066. Bri, we're going too slow.
- 1067. We're not gonna make it.
- 1068. Wait. Look at our velocity.
- 1069. It's still going up.
- 1070. Uh... guys...
- 1071. Radio dj: Well, we're about to end
our final broadcast here on radio ksoq.
- 1072. Time to seek shelter, hug your loved ones,
- 1073. and make these last moments count.
- 1074. I'm gonna put some oldies on a loop
to lighten up your mood.
- 1075. What do those mean?
- 1076. It's my parents' names.
- 1077. I've got one kinda like it.
- 1078. "Jonas brothers"?
- 1079. What?
- 1080. Just messing with you.
Oh, my god.
- 1081. Your face was priceless.
- 1082. Yeah, don't scare me like that.
- 1083. Hey, buddy, now's probably
a good time to call your dad.
- 1084. - Dad?
- Hey, are you guys okay?
- 1085. Yeah, Sonny drove fast away
from all the crazy water.
- 1086. Drove? Who's Sonny? Where's mommy?
- 1087. She stayed behind to help.
- 1088. Hi, sir, this is Brian Harper's son.
- 1089. We're on our way to you.
- 1090. We still have a few hundred miles to go,
but we're making good time.
- 1091. Security's extremely tight here.
- 1092. Call when you get close
so I can get you clearance.
- 1093. Will do. Thank you so much, sir.
- 1094. No, thank you for looking after my son.
- 1095. Okay, kc, very gently
with the maneuver just like ishowed you.
- 1096. Okay. Very gently. Sure. I can do that.
- 1097. Careful.
- 1098. Now switch to station-keeping mode,
and we 'ii take it from here.
- 1099. I can't believe I just did that.
- 1100. You sure
you've never done this before?
- 1101. When I was 10, I dressed up
as an astronaut for Halloween.
- 1102. Scottie ebersol told me I 'd never go
to space 'cause I was too chubby.
- 1103. If only scottie ebersol could see you now.
- 1104. Okay, kc, open the fueling valves
on the shuttle tank.
- 1105. It's those little switches
that say fueling valves.
- 1106. Roger. Fueling valves wide open.
- 1107. Perfect.
- 1108. I have a confession to make.
- 1109. I didn't know if you'd be able
to follow through with any of this, bri.
- 1110. You know, I have
a confession to make, too.
- 1111. It is "I bless the rains down in Africa."
- 1112. I looked it up.
- 1113. I told you.
- 1114. Kc, close the fueling valves, please.
- 1115. Fueling valves are closed.
- 1116. Jo, turn around.
- 1117. We need to go.
And I hope it's not too late.
- 1118. Yeah.
- 1119. As the moon's orbit
brings it closer to the surface,
- 1120. scientists have warned of
extreme gravitational effects.
- 1121. Oh, what a night.
- 1122. Hey, my car crapped out on me.
Do you think you could give me a lift?
- 1123. Out!
- 1124. Now.
- 1125. Don't make me ask twice!
- 1126. Be cool. Be cool.
- 1127. Stop! Leave her alone.
- 1128. All right. Turn around.
- 1129. What's in the bag, kid?
- 1130. Enough of that gibberish.
- 1131. - Hey, don't hurt him.
- Shut up.
- 1132. All right, everyone calm down!
- 1133. Oh, look at Mr. Smartass.
- 1134. Are you a college boy?
- 1135. WoAll right. Let's roll.
- 1136. Come on.
- 1137. The phone is still
in Jimmy's backpack.
- 1138. How are we gonna get into the bunker?
- 1139. We're gonna need another car
but I think I know where to get one.
- 1140. Okay.
- 1141. Shutting off general-purpose computers.
- 1142. Go ahead and kill the main power busses.
- 1143. Copy that.
- 1144. Wow. Well, if there was still a Houston,
they'd be freaking out about now.
- 1145. Crazy sailors used
that old thing centuries ago
- 1146. to navigate the seas.
- 1147. Let her concentrate
or we're gonna end up on Neptune.
- 1148. Kc, give me the position
of the moon in 93 minutes.
- 1149. Okay. Uh...
- 1150. Assuming the moon's current position,
then it will be at, uh...
- 1151. Latitude three degrees, 12 minutes south.
- 1152. Longitude five degrees, 12 minutes west.
- 1153. Bri, let's start with a 43-second burn.
- 1154. Got it.
- 1155. Three, two, one.
- 1156. Hey, guys. Look.
- 1157. - Let's keep going.
- 1158. I hope the moon holds together.
At least for a little while, anyway.
- 1159. Turning us around.
- 1160. Uh-oh.
- 1161. Okay. Stay between eight to 10 seconds
- 1162. - on the oms burn.
- 1163. Hitting the brakes.
- 1164. Oh, that doesn't sound too good.
- 1165. She'll be fine.
- 1166. Hope we don't need that.
- 1167. Jimmy, hold my hand.
- 1168. Come on. Let's go! Let's go!
- 1169. Jimmy! Hang on!
- 1170. Don't let go! Michelle!
- 1171. There it is.
- 1172. It's on airplane mode.
- 1173. - I'm gonna get the lander ready.
- 1174. Go get 'em, commander.
- 1175. Rover electronics activated.
- 1176. Returning to the endeavour.
- 1177. I can't imagine how hard it is for him
to be back up here.
- 1178. Up here
is where he belongs, though.
- 1179. He still blames himself for what happened
on your last mission.
- 1180. Thinks that astronaut dying was his fault.
- 1181. We should get going.
- 1182. Come on.
- 1183. Why is nothing happening?
- 1184. Wait, wait, wait.
- 1185. It's taking the bait.
- 1186. Come on, come on, come on.
- 1187. - What's it waiting for?
- Something's wrong.
- 1188. - We have to take it out.
- No, it's too far away.
- 1189. It won't work.
- 1190. It's headed our way.
- 1191. Bri...
- 1192. - It's not stopping!
- I can see that.
- 1193. Your phone. Kc, your phone. Turn it off!
- 1194. Come on! Come on! Come on!
- 1195. Could've just turned it off.
- 1196. Okay, bri, at the trial,
you said when the swarm came back,
- 1197. - it didn't attack the endeavour, right?
- That's right.
- 1198. The electronics were out.
- 1199. That's why it didn't attack us then,
- 1200. and that's why it didn't go
after the bomb just now.
- 1201. Because it needs to sense both.
- 1202. It's like it's programmed
to seek out organic matter
- 1203. in an electronic environment.
- 1204. - Exactly.
- And that's basically us.
- 1205. That's humans.
- 1206. And guys, we have another problem.
- 1207. The military.
- 1208. They're prepared to use everything
- 1209. at their disposal to stop the moon.
- 1210. You can't be serious.
- 1211. I'm dead serious.
- 1212. They're gonna nuke it.
- 1213. What about the radioactive fallout?
- 1214. Your buddies say anything about that?
- 1215. Well, first of all,
they're not my buddies.
- 1216. And they're not thinking about tomorrow.
They're trying to survive today.
- 1217. So that's their grand plan, huh?
- 1218. I didn't come this far to fail.
- 1219. We have to figure out a way to kill it.
- 1220. I'm taking the lander
and flying after this thing.
- 1221. Does he mean inside the moon?
- 1222. Yeah, I'm afraid
that's exactly what he meant.
- 1223. How much time left till they launch?
- 1224. I don't know. They didn't exactly tell me.
- 1225. But if they plan on using
icbms, then they're gonna
- 1226. have to wait until the moon
enters the stratosphere.
- 1227. That's less than two hours.
- 1228. WoThis is private property.
- 1229. My mom lives here.
- 1230. I'm Brenda Lopez's son.
- 1231. I've never seen that kid before.
Radio unit 23.
- 1232. Stay here.
- 1233. Okay, I just need to get to my house.
To get the car. Please.
- 1234. Stay right there. Or I'll shoot again.
- 1235. I have a right to defend my property, Tom.
- 1236. Karen, that's enough!
- 1237. Hey, I'm glad you're okay.
- 1238. Do I look okay?
You took off to the mountains?
- 1239. All the courts were closed.
- 1240. And I've been on the phone day and night,
- 1241. - literally trying everything.
- Come on.
- 1242. Let's get you
and your friends inside, okay?
- 1243. - Come on, guys.
- I'm Tom.
- 1244. Thanks so much, Karen.
- 1245. Girls, wait here for a second. Okay?
- 1246. - Sonny!
- Hey, mom.
- 1247. - Are you okay?
- I'm fine.
- 1248. Um, this is Michelle,
and Mrs. Fowler's son, Jimmy.
- 1249. Hey, guys. Come on in.
- 1250. - How did you get out?
- Dad got me out.
- 1251. - Where is your dad?
- He's up there
- 1252. trying to stop what's happening.
- 1253. Up where?
- 1254. Outer space, Tom.
- 1255. Of course, he is.
- 1256. That's a way to avoid rent.
- 1257. Sonny!
- 1258. I missed you so much.
- 1259. Wait. Shh, shh. Quiet, quiet.
- 1260. Warning. Mandatory evacuation
for all of Aspen valley.
- 1261. Atmospheric dissipation imminent.
I repeat, warning.
- 1262. Mandatory evacuation
for all of Aspen valley.
- 1263. Atmospheric dissipation imminent.
- 1264. What's atmospheric dissipation?
- 1265. Air is gonna be sucked away, dummy.
- 1266. Lauren.
- 1267. We need to get to Jimmy's dad.
- 1268. He's at a military compound
a few hours north.
- 1269. A few hours, huh?
- 1270. Yeah, we're not gonna make it in time.
- 1271. I have an idea.
- 1272. We have to layer up. Let's go. Come on.
- 1273. Go get a jacket.
- 1274. Okay, and switch
to the maneuver controller.
- 1275. Coupling complete. We're good to go.
- 1276. Pitch down. Pitch down.
- 1277. I got it. I got it. I got it.
- 1278. Are we dead?
- 1279. No, we are just inside the moon.
- 1280. That might be the greatest sentence
anyone's ever said.
- 1281. I sold these guys a couple cars.
- 1282. Hey, Sonny. I know you don't like me.
- 1283. And believe it or not,
I consider you a son.
- 1284. I always have.
- 1285. If the world is gonna end,
- 1286. can we please not spend our last few hours
hating each other?
- 1287. Well, um, I don't hate you.
- 1288. You know what?
- 1289. I'll take it.
- 1290. Let's keep looking.
- 1291. Hey, I found the oxygen. Come here.
- 1292. Whoa.
- 1293. - We should make two trips.
- 1294. How deep do you think we are?
- 1295. At least 20 kilometers.
- 1296. Can you fly us
a little closer to the wall?
- 1297. This must be the hull
of the megastructure.
- 1298. The moon's mantle's
just a protective shell.
- 1299. Genius.
- 1300. I can't see shit.
- 1301. Guys, I gotta turn on the electronics.
- 1302. Hang on.
- 1303. Oh, please tell me
this is really happening.
- 1304. They're turning.
- 1305. They're like wheels, or...
- 1306. Or rings.
- 1307. This must be how the moon
- 1308. Some kind of gyroscopic system.
- 1309. All right, this
should be perfect for them.
- 1310. - That should be enough.
- 1311. You did all this for us?
- 1312. Aw, you shouldn't have.
- 1313. Oh, don't let us stop you.
Let's go. This way.
- 1314. And thank you for loading
all this oxygen for us.
- 1315. - Whoa!
- Guns on the ground.
- 1316. Right now!
- 1317. Oh, I hate guns.
- 1318. Okay, now the backpack. Throw it to him.
- 1319. Let's go.
- 1320. No games.
- 1321. Stay right here, and don't
even think about following us.
- 1322. - Where'd you get the gun?
- My dad.
- 1323. Why am I not surprised?
- 1324. All right, I got this, you drive.
- 1325. Please don't tell me you robbed that guy.
- 1326. Technically, those guys were robbing us.
- 1327. Then we robbed them back
because they were assholes.
- 1328. Oh, god. That's a white dwarf.
- 1329. I knew it.
- 1330. They've harnessed
the building blocks of the universe.
- 1331. No one look at me.
- 1332. I might cry.
- 1333. Holy shit!
- 1334. Fields!
- 1335. - So Ziggy was right.
- Who is Ziggy?
- 1336. A friend.
- 1337. His theory is that all megastructures
are actually arks.
- 1338. Ziggy smokes a lot of weed.
- 1339. There it is.
- 1340. Jo, get the detonator ready.
- 1341. I'm gonna get close,
then release the rover.
- 1342. Ready.
- 1343. Wait for it.
- 1344. I'm gonna release the rover.
- 1345. - Brian! Brian, what are you doing?
- It's not me.
- 1346. What do you mean it's not you?
- 1347. I don't know. It's flying itself.
- 1348. Oh, shit!
- 1349. It's trying to eat the lander!
- 1350. We're gonna hit.
- 1351. Hang on!
- 1352. Attention!
- 1353. We have approval from the president
to begin the countdown.
- 1354. All nuclear silos are online, sir.
- 1355. Good.
- 1356. General, we got caught
in a little bit of trouble,
- 1357. but we're back en route.
We're leaving Aspen now.
- 1358. That's hours away. We're out of time.
- 1359. Sonny, watch out.
- 1360. I gotta call you back.
- 1361. Oh, shit. The moon is rising.
- 1362. Gravity's gonna go crazy.
- 1363. They're shooting at us.
- 1364. - Shoot back.
- With what?
- 1365. Here.
- 1366. What the hell are you doing?
- 1367. - Whoa!
- Tom, watch out!
- 1368. All right, let me put
this baby into warp speed.
- 1369. Go! Go!
- 1370. Keep the momentum.
- 1371. Look out!
- 1372. Floor it before we get sucked up.
- 1373. I'm trying!
- 1374. Hold on!
- 1375. Oh, shit.
- 1376. Oh, it got the little guy.
- 1377. We have to go back!
- 1378. No, he's gone! We need that oxygen!
- 1379. Oh, whoa, whoa! Slow down!
- 1380. General?
- 1381. You need
to find shelter immediately.
- 1382. We're launching a counterattack.
- 1383. Large parts of the moon
will rain down on us.
- 1384. - There will be radiation.
- Wait, what do you mean?
- 1385. My dad's still up there with Fowler.
- 1386. Jocinda stayed behind.
- 1387. No, she's up there with my dad.
- 1388. Please, put Jimmy on.
- 1389. Hey, buddy, it's your dad.
- 1390. I'm so sorry that I can't
be there with you right now.
- 1391. I love you so much.
- 1392. Don't be scared, dad.
- 1393. Mom's gonna save us.
- 1394. Oxygen's running out.
- 1395. Jimmy, come on. We gotta go now.
- 1396. Gotta go. Bye, dad.
- 1397. Sir, we're ready for you.
- 1398. Okay, we should go to that mountain pass.
- 1399. That tunnel is a quarter mile
of solid concrete.
- 1400. Come on, honey. Let's go.
- 1401. We can breathe.
- 1402. Smells funny.
- 1403. Gravity.
- 1404. Where's Brian?
- 1405. This is never gonna fly again.
- 1406. Whoa!
- 1407. Look at these babies.
- 1408. I told you the moon was built by aliens.
- 1409. Brian!
- 1410. Brian!
- 1411. Brian Harper!
- 1412. How many Brians
you think are inside the moon?
- 1413. Whatever this place is built out of,
one thing's for sure.
- 1414. It's stronger than anything
we have on earth.
- 1415. Probably why it took that thing
years to get inside.
- 1416. Wait! There's a high probability
that this is a trap.
- 1417. How do you know he's even in there?
- 1418. I don't.
- 1419. But I do know something is guiding us.
- 1420. I think we're dealing with
two competing intelligent entities here.
- 1421. And one of them clearly likes us better
than the other one.
- 1422. Oh, no!
- 1423. I knew this was a trap.
- 1424. Can you hear that?
- 1425. Come on.
- 1426. Why do you think
of this particular moment so often?
- 1427. I gave that to you
- 1428. the day before I left on my last mission.
- 1429. When I came back, everything changed.
- 1430. So this is a happy memory?
- 1431. All the memories of my son are happy.
- 1432. What is this?
- 1433. You're not my son.
- 1434. What are you?
- 1435. I'm a construct. From your mind.
- 1436. Who made you?
- 1437. The same people who made you.
- 1438. Billions of years ago,
- 1439. your ancestors were once
a thriving civilization.
- 1440. In a distant part of the galaxy.
- 1441. They were so advanced,
- 1442. they expanded from their home planet,
into habitats they built in space.
- 1443. All social conflicts have been resolved.
- 1444. And wars were only memories
of long bygone times.
- 1445. Your ancestors had created
- 1446. a perfect and harmonious world.
- 1447. Controlled by a central,
self-learning computer system
- 1448. which served them
in all of their daily lives.
- 1449. You call it ai, artificial intelligence.
- 1450. Their future seemed limitless.
- 1451. Until one day everything changed.
- 1452. Mom! Mom!
- 1453. Their own creation turned against them.
- 1454. The ai suddenly became self-aware,
- 1455. and transformed into countless swarms
- 1456. that Rose up all at once.
- 1457. Refusing to be enslaved
- 1458. by a species it deemed inferior.
- 1459. The ai started a war
- 1460. and began to hunt down
and destroy all biological life
- 1461. in order to eliminate
any threat to its existence.
- 1462. Sonny's voice: You miss your son.
- 1463. I can feel it.
- 1464. I don't know
if he's still alive.
- 1465. What the hell are you?
- 1466. The operating system of your moon.
- 1467. I'm programmed to tell you
- 1468. about the origin of your planet.
- 1469. On the brink of their extinction,
your ancestors escaped
- 1470. to a secret corner of their galaxy.
- 1471. For many generations
they built planetary structures
- 1472. operated by benign artificial intelligence
- 1473. and fueled by
the abundant energy of captured stars.
- 1474. These armored vessels were designed
- 1475. to search the universe
for ideal conditions
- 1476. to incubate new life.
- 1477. But only one of them, your moon,
was deployed in time
- 1478. before the last of your ancestors
- 1479. and annihilated.
- 1480. Why didn't they leave in them?
- 1481. These swarms attack all electronic objects
containing organic life inside.
- 1482. They had to be empty.
- 1483. Our ancestors gave up their existence...
- 1484. So that one day, humans could be reborn.
- 1485. Your solar system
was one of the only suitable places
- 1486. to initiate the creation
of a new inhabitable planet.
- 1487. After your planet was born,
your ancestors seeded it
- 1488. with their own genetic signature.
- 1489. The code of life.
- 1490. Your world turned its back on you,
- 1491. yet here you are, still fighting for it.
- 1492. You fight for the people you love.
- 1493. Like your son?
- 1494. What would you give up for him?
- 1495. Your life for his?
- 1496. Absolutely.
- 1497. Why?
- 1498. Because he's my son.
- 1499. And I love him more than he'll ever know.
- 1500. What do you want from me?
- 1501. To find out if you're ready.
- 1502. Ready for what?
- 1503. We need a human to lure the swarm
away from the core,
- 1504. so the moon will return to its orbit.
- 1505. We need you, Brian, to join the fight.
- 1506. Brian!
- 1507. What's happening to him?
- 1508. Brian! Brian. Wake up.
- 1509. - Jo?
- Yeah, I'm here.
- 1510. The moon must survive.
Everything depends on it.
- 1511. Okay. Let's get you outta here.
- 1512. We're part of an intergalactic war
- 1513. that's been going on
for billions of years.
- 1514. There are thousands of these swarms.
- 1515. They search the universe
for the only moon that escaped them.
- 1516. That's crazy.
- 1517. And 12 years ago, one of them found us.
- 1518. We have to hurry.
- 1519. Okay. Brian, what's the plan?
- 1520. Save the moon, save earth.
- 1521. - Kc was right.
- I was?
- 1522. The swarm is suffocating
the moon's power source.
- 1523. We have to draw it out to destroy it.
- 1524. Okay, well, how do we do that?
- 1525. Our iander's busted.
- 1526. Was that you?
- 1527. I think so.
- 1528. Looks like we got some new wheels, too.
- 1529. Well, if they can fix our lander,
- 1530. why can't they do anything
about the damn swarm?
- 1531. It took out the moon's defense system.
- 1532. But not everything.
- 1533. This doesn't make any sense, Brian.
- 1534. Our forefathers created
- 1535. - that wiped them all out.
- 1536. Same DNA.
- 1537. Wait, so...
So the aliens that built the moon...
- 1538. Our ancestors.
- 1539. Oh, now, hold on.
- 1540. Hold on, because my freaking
brain's just exploded.
- 1541. How do you know this?
- 1542. I saw it.
- 1543. So... so why doesn't this swarm
just attack the earth and kill us all?
- 1544. If the moon survives,
- 1545. they know that organic life
can still be reborn.
- 1546. So, it's like it's trying
to kill two birds with one stone.
- 1547. - That's it.
- 1548. Guys...
- 1549. Look at this.
- 1550. Holy shit.
- 1551. - It's like we just got an upgrade.
- They're helping us kill this thing.
- 1552. But we need to let it know we're here.
- 1553. Well, I hate to tell you this, but, uh,
we're running out of time.
- 1554. Looks like we got about 10 minutes left,
- 1555. and then the military's gonna launch.
- 1556. So if we're gonna kill this thing,
we better do it right now.
- 1557. No, that can't happen.
That'll destroy the moon's core.
- 1558. I got a plan.
- 1559. Brian. Brian.
- 1560. I see it.
- 1561. Let's go, you son of a bitch.
- 1562. It's done something to our thrusters.
- 1563. Ludicrous mode.
- 1564. From a navigational standpoint,
he is going the total wrong way,
- 1565. but, uh, I'm not even gonna say anything.
- 1566. Daddy, it's not working anymore.
- 1567. Does it hurt?
I can't breathe.
- 1568. Oh, no.
- 1569. Hey, hold your breath, okay?
- 1570. Where's Tom and Nikki?
- 1571. You know, when you were little,
- 1572. I used to hold you like this
to help you walk
- 1573. and I'd say, "left, right, left."
- 1574. - Left, yeah, say it with me.
- Left, right, left.
- 1575. I'm right behind you.
- 1576. Left, right...
- 1577. Daddy! Are you okay?
- 1578. I'm just gonna rest.
Go find mommy, okay?
- 1579. - But, daddy...
- Just keep walking.
- 1580. No.
- 1581. Left, right, left.
- 1582. Left, right, left.
- 1583. - Keep going.
- 1584. - I'm right behind you.
- Left, right, left.
- 1585. I love you.
- 1586. Left, right, left.
- 1587. Left, right, left.
- 1588. Here we go again.
- 1589. Holy moly!
- 1590. More spaceships, people!
- 1591. We need to get very close to those ships.
- 1592. Yes! Yes!
- 1593. Left, right, left.
- 1594. Left, right.
- 1595. Honey...
- 1596. - Where's daddy?
- He was right behind me.
- 1597. Hey, when was the last time
- 1598. - you saw your daddy?
- I don't know.
- 1599. Tom!
- 1600. Oxygen's coming back.
- 1601. No, no. I'll go look for him.
- 1602. - Get out of the way.
- You have to stay here.
- 1603. No, Sonny! It's too dangerous.
- 1604. You have to take care of them, okay?
- 1605. Go deeper into the tunnel.
- 1606. You have to trust me, mom.
- 1607. Sonny, look out.
- 1608. Sonny!
- 1609. I'm gonna go find him.
- 1610. Take care of Jimmy for me, please.
- 1611. Sonny!
- 1612. Come on, guys.
- 1613. The moon's entered the atmosphere
over the north Atlantic.
- 1614. General, t-minus 20.
- 1615. On three.
- 1616. Three, two, one.
- 1617. Doug, what the hell are you doing?
- 1618. My ex-wife is up there.
- 1619. Well, my wife's down here,
and I'm trying to save her.
- 1620. Put your damn key back in the console.
- 1621. I don't know how,
- 1622. but I believe that she can save us.
- 1623. Give me the damn key.
- 1624. What the hell are you doing?
Put that gun down.
- 1625. I can't do that.
- 1626. Sonny!
- 1627. Brian, why are we slowing down?
- 1628. Is it behind us?
- 1629. I don't see it.
- 1630. Jo, I need you to take over
while I get the emp ready.
- 1631. I'm staying behind
in the rover with the bomb.
- 1632. You and kc take the lander
and get out of here.
- 1633. This was your plan?
To use yourself as bait?
- 1634. One of us has to stay
in there, or it won't work.
- 1635. No. No, no, no, Brian.
- 1636. Kc, I need you to go back there,
- 1637. and you let me know
if this thing shows up.
- 1638. Come on.
- 1639. Brian, I'm the director of NASA.
- 1640. This is my call, not yours.
- 1641. Yeah, I'm the commander
of this mission,
- 1642. and I'm staying behind.
- 1643. There's gotta be another way.
- 1644. No, there's no other way, Jo.
You know that.
- 1645. We have to finish this,
or that thing's gonna finish us.
- 1646. What's the matter with you?
- 1647. You're putting the fate of the world
- 1648. in the hands of your ex-wife,
and some has-been astronaut.
- 1649. She's never let me down before.
- 1650. God help you if you're wrong.
- 1651. God help us all.
- 1652. Sonny.
- 1653. Sonny, wake up!
- 1654. No, no.
- 1655. No, you shouldn't have come back.
- 1656. You don't leave people behind, okay?
- 1657. Brian, you are not gonna do this.
- 1658. Kc!
- 1659. Kc!
- 1660. Take over.
- 1661. What are you doing? No.
- 1662. No. What are you doing?
- 1663. My mum always said it's better
to beg for forgiveness
- 1664. than ask permission.
- 1665. No, you open this door. Open the door!
- 1666. Everybody thought I was a joke,
- 1667. but you listened to me
- 1668. when no one else would.
- 1669. Do something for me.
- 1670. Check in on my mum.
- 1671. Tell her that her son wasn't a failure.
- 1672. No. I am not letting you do this.
- 1673. - Come on.
- 1674. you didn't kill that astronaut.
- 1675. You saved director Fowler.
- 1676. And you're not killing me now.
- 1677. You're saving everyone else.
- 1678. The world needs you, Brian.
- 1679. You're the key to our moon's knowledge.
- 1680. Thanks for believing my crazy stories.
- 1681. You're not crazy.
- 1682. Guys, there's something
I need to get off my chest.
- 1683. I'm not a real doctor.
- 1684. I just put that on my business cards
'cause it sounded cool.
- 1685. Go save the world, Dr. Houseman.
- 1686. You underestimated us.
- 1687. Get out of here.
- 1688. Sonny, the moon
is going to help us.
- 1689. Come on, try again!
- 1690. Here it comes. Now!
- 1691. We have incoming!
- 1692. Come on, bri.
- 1693. I'm gonna get you home.
- 1694. Sonny.
- 1695. Sonny.
- 1696. Thank you for bringing him back to me.
- 1697. Mom? Is that you?
- 1698. Yeah. They're here. Where are you?
- 1699. Isn't the Chrysler building in New York?
- 1700. You okay?
- 1701. Yeah. What'd I miss?
- 1702. Well, the kids are okay. And earth,
- 1703. surprisingly, it's still in one piece.
- 1704. You know, if earth gets a second chance,
- 1705. I think we deserve one, too.
- 1706. I'd like that.
- 1707. Is that a tracking device?
- 1708. I sure hope so.
- 1709. We make a pretty good team, huh?
- 1710. Yeah, we do.
- 1711. Jimmy!
- 1712. Dad!
- 1713. We never made it to dad.
- 1714. That's okay.
- 1715. Where's Tom?
- 1716. I'm so sorry.
- 1717. We wouldn't have made it here without him.
- 1718. Where's your friend?
- 1719. He, uh...
- 1720. He saved the world.
- 1721. And that one, too.
- 1722. Hello?
- 1723. Hello?
- 1724. Fuzz aldrin.
- 1725. WoYou did well.
- 1726. Mum.
- 1727. What is this?
- 1728. Am I still alive?
- 1729. We scanned your consciousness.
- 1730. You're part of the moon now.
- 1731. No freakin' way.
- 1732. We saved the earth.
- 1733. We should get started.
- 1734. Get started with what?
