Our universe...

is a dangerous place.

In our solar system,

there are over

a thousand asteroids

and comets

that are classified

as threatening to hit the earth.

But you should also know

that those are just the ones

we know about.

Just last year,

an asteroid

200 feet in diameter

passed within

40,000 miles of us.

Now in planetary terms,

that is like, uh...

it's like someone

shooting at you

and having a bullet

part your hair

without touching your skin.

Now, if it had hit us,

it would have exploded

with the force of a hydrogen bomb.

Do you know how much

advance warning we had?

Three days.

The good news is,

we have the technology

to deflect these objects.

It's called Project 7.

The most advanced,

most powerful,

most ambitious planetary

defense system

ever conceived.

It's equipped

with an energy field

that allows it to deflect objects

many times its size.

The bad news?

There's always bad news.

Our government pulled funding

from Project 7

just before it came online.

So right now

it floats dormant in space.

The earth's been struck before,

it'll be struck again.

The only question

is whether

we're gonna be ready.

Do your part

in protecting the planet.

Write to your congressman,

tell your friends.

Spread the word.

Our lives may depend on it.

We need Project 7.


You need Project 7.

Thank you very much.

Dr. Preston, Brad Walker.

Your liaison officer

with Mission Ops.

Can I speak with you

for a moment?

- Yeah.

- As you know, it is our policy

to, uh, notify

family members immediately

of any situation involving

the mission that may arise.

- I know the protocol.

- Now, I've been sent here

to make sure you don't hear

anything through the media

that may make you worry


Now, having said that, um,

early this morning, we did

lose contact with the Nautilus.

Dr. Preston.

Dr. Preston, wait.

Dr. Preston.

Come on, pick up.

We're sorry,

your call cannot

be completed as dialed.

Please check the number

and dial again...

- Damn it!

... or call your oper...


All right.

- Hello?

- Hey, it's James.

I can't talk to you.

I'm at work.

- If Edward finds out...

- I'm worried about Victoria.

Today was orbit capture.
