the shuttle Atlantis will be

launching for the first time...

-on the west coast.

-I understand that Project Deadhead...

I understand that Project Deadhead

is carrying a sophisticated satellite...

-to study the Fiona comet.

-to study the Fiona comet.

Yes, the satellite has

a specialized guidance system...

which will allow it to pass

closer to the comet than ever before.

Yeah, yeah.

Is Jerry Garcia on board?


Is Jerry Garcia on board?

Is Jerry Garcia on board?

-Well, yes, actually.


Project Deadhead

gets its name from the fact...

that its payload includes

the ashes of famous rocker...

Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead.

How in the world

did you know that?

-It's my job to know that.

-It's my job to know these things.


-Okay, Lizzie, go to Brace.

All right, Brace, here we go.

The big wrap-up.

-And so, on this the night

of the Fiona Comet,

-And so, on this,

the night of the Fiona Comet,

our thoughts turn...

to that satellite's only passenger-

Jerry Garcia.

-I'm Brace Channing-

-I'm Brace Channing for KGSC.

-Thank you, Captain Dalton.

-Thank you.

-God, you're beautiful.

-God, you're beautiful.

-Thank you. So are you.

And we're out.

-Tim, I'd like a word with you.

-And I'm dead.



-You might want to take

a look at this, sir.

-The Fiona Comet?

-So what?

-It's changing direction, sir.

That's impossible. Are you sure it's not

the trajectory of our own satellite?

Yes, sir. Uh, the comet's

just changed direction again, sir.

-It's gotta be the equipment.

-I've got down line confirmation.

No, sir. Our backup computers

verify all systems go.

It's- It's coming down, sir.

-The satellite?

-No, sir. The comet.

Okay, let's go to general alert.

-Major, scramble the F-16s.
