And who are you?

Where is everyone?

One question at a time.

... with lots of people and noise.

I'll throw you in all the details

on the way. It's a long trip.

Why don't you start now?

What do you know so far?

Oh, no one has heard anything

from you since Sunday.

- What do you know of our work here?

- Just let me ask a question.

- Who are you exactly?

- I already told you my name...

Thomas Jackman.

Yes, I know.

but by whose authority,

are you here questioning me?

The company you leased asked

for us to check up on you.


Well, the first thing you wanna know:

is that our project leader Professor Borman, is dead.


He was shot.

By Doctor Ivanov, our chief geologist.

How close was Ivanov to Borman,

when he shot him?

I wasn't there.

Does it matter?

- Would you forget about this one?

Look, Jack, I don't wanna be a hiccup

in your investigation...

... but if you don't mind we really need to leave,

as in now.

Yes, well that might be the case,


... I'm gonna have to call in

for some instructions first.

We're gonna need a place.

Hold it there...
