that three-dimensional molecular structures...

...can be transmitted

instantaneously through space...

...much in the same way

as a television image is.

But a television image is merely an electronic

representation of light and shadow.

Andr's machine actually disintegrated

the molecules of solid matter...

...and then reintegrated them again

in a different place.

Eventually, Andr gained

such confidence in his machine...

...that he put himself through

the disintegration-integration process.

He successfully transmitted himself.

Then, on a tragic second attempt...

...something went wrong.

Unwittingly, he found himself

in the disintegrator chamber...

...but he was not alone.

With him was a fly.

The result was a creature

with the body of Andr Delambre...

...and the arm and the head...

...of a fly.

And so Andr decided to

dispose of himself in such a way... to keep such an abomination

from the eyes of the world.

With your mother's help,

he crushed his monstrous head and arm... one of the presses

out there in the old foundry.

Now you know why I didn't want to tell you...

...and why we've got to get out of here

and lock this place up...

...and never come back again!

- Franois?

- Yes?

Do you remember what you told me

after my father's death?

Yes, I think so.

You said he was...

like an explorer in a wild country...

...where no man had ever been before.

That he was searching for a great truth.

He almost found it,

but for one instant... he was careless.

- Yes, Philippe, I remember that.

- Do you remember what I asked you then?

Yes. You said you wanted

to be an explorer like your father.

- And you asked me to help you.

- Will you help me?

Haven't I done so?

The finest scientific education...
