Thank you doctor. Shariff, what’s your

status?

SHARIFF:

Nearly there. Replacing battery module

A1 and C.

SHARIFF DASARI is an Indian engineer in his mid-thirties. He is

attached with tethers to a platform on one side of the Hubble.

This is his second mission into outer space.

MISSION CONTROL:

(on radio)

Could you be more specific?

Indeterminate estimates make Houston

anxious.

SHARIFF:

No... no... no Houston, don’t be

anxious. Anxiety is not good for the

heart... The system is ready to reactivate.

MISSION CONTROL:

(on radio)

Hubble Telescope engaged. Upgrade

fully functional. That applause you

hear is for you, Shariff.

Congratulations. Kick back, take the

rest of the day off.

Shariff cheers and begins singing a pop tune in Hindi, bursting

into a Zero-G Bollywood choreography that is repressed by the

stiffness of his space suit.

SHARIFF:

(singing)

Woohoo… Jaise Baadal Paani Ka, Yaarana

Hai Oh Jaise Paani Ka, Yaarana Hai.

MISSION CONTROL:

(on radio)

Matt, please advise as to Mission

Specialist Shariff’s current activity.

MATT:

He appears to be doing the Macarena of

some sort. Though that would merely be

a best guess scenario on my part.

Matt is now approaching the Explorer, skillfully maneuvering his

thrusters.

The other astronaut stands perched on a ROBOTIC ARM attached to

the Shuttle. The arm is a crane-like moving platform remotely

operated from inside the Shuttle.

We TRACK In on the astronaut as she works intently alone.

MISSION CONTROL:

Dr. Stone. Houston. Medical now have

you with a temperature drop to 35.9

and heart rate rise to 70.

How are you doing?

RYAN:

Houston, I’m fine, it’s just...

(she swallows)

...Keeping your lunch down in zero G

is harder than it looks.

MISSION CONTROL:

Doctor Stone? Medical is asking if you

want to return to Explorer?
