Exploding Sun

Synopsis: The world watches in awe as the Roebling Clipper is launched into space. Using state-of-the-art scalar engines to fly around the Moon and back in just hours, the maiden voyage of the first-ever trans-lunar passenger ship is about to make history. Among those on board: First Lady Simone Mathany, space-exploration entrepreneur Steve Roebling, Dr. Denise Balaban, pilot Fiona Henslaw, and a very lucky lottery winner. But while en route, a massive solar flare sparks a cosmic-ray burst that accelerates Aurora's engine and blows the ship away from Earth's orbit. Now out of control, it's hurtling straight for the sun. At Mission Control, along with the desperate President Thomas Mathany, an increasingly anxious team of experts puts a plan into motion - an interception by a shuttle attached to the International Space Station. When that ends in disaster, the Aurora only picks up speed. Now being pulled toward the sun at three percent of the speed of light, it's only a matter of hours before it b

Authorities in Australia report that

the solar storm electromagnetic

pulse overloaded power stations

all along Australia's eastern coast.

Though the storm occurerd some

hours after sundown local time,

the high energy burst

was apparently diverted

around the curvature of the earth

to strike Sydney after dark.

The young woman was killed instantly.

Call an ambulance!

Now the intensity and

effect of this solar storm

is reminisant of

the geomagnetic storm

that was a result of a cordal

mass eject on March 9th 1989,

that knocked out power in the

Canadian province of Quebec.

That storm originated on earth

with extremely intense aurora's

at both poles that were visible as

Really? -Uh huh

Well I know we're going through

a peak in the solar cycle,

but it generated a storm.

Does this change anything

for the flight tomorrow?

I don't think so.


Go home.

Go to sleep. I need you tomorrow.

You're on launch diagnostic systems

and fuel disbursement back ups.

I need you.

When you talk like that,

it really turns me on.

So come on, let's just go back to your

place and order some Chinese.

We just take.

Fine, let's just go back to your

place and do more tech talk


I know, I'm too young,

I could get hurt, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Listen. I told you when

we started working together,

you don't want to

hang out with me. Ok.

You remember that.

Ya. I thought you were

just being mysterious.

How was I supposed to know

you were incapable of lying?

I told you that, too.

Yes. You did. You told me that. Yes.

Do you know

that biologically that two people

can tell a lot from each other

by the transfer of genetic information

that occurs from kissing.

It's a miracle of Darwinian selection.

What's my DNA telling you right now?

That uh, one day I'm going to get to you

and when I do you're going

to be in big trouble.

Ok. Won't be the first time

a kiss got me in trouble.


Whoa. Slow down. Don't you

think we're moving a little fast?

No, and now kiss me.

No. Hey it's only been our third date.

You want a fourth one? Kiss me.

We don't have a lot of time.

Uh, until what?

What the hell!

Tempo is recovered.

Returning to castle.

Tempo? I thought you told me

your name was Lara Smith?

Miss Mathany, please come with us.

Mathany? Lara Mathany?

I've been dating

the president's daughter?

Ugh! Ugh!


Making out with some boy

in the back seat of car.


Nothing happened.

Hey, you just slipped your secrect

service detail and you just ran off.

do you even realize

the risk you put yourself at?

I was being discrete.

You're the president's daughter.

You're held to a higher standard.

I didn't ask for any of that.

I want a normal life.

Well you can have one in a year.

Five if I'm re-elected.

We'll talk about your

behaviour when I get back.

Wish me luck.

Ya. Good luck on your publicity stunt.

Hey! Hey!

It's ok. Just leave her.

Were you like that at sixteen?

Worse. You're sure

this is going to be safe?

Roebling's a genious.

He's poached the best minds from NASA.

This program better funded

than any other government agency.

I'd go in a second if I could.

I know.

Well, I'll see you Thursday.

I don't think I hold you enough.

so hold me now.

Well I am really excited for you and,

no I really am.

Ya, no I am. Really, ya.

Ya, I think he's just trying to

make up for the G force test

he put me through.

Well I think that's what you get

when you're the oldest

member of the group, right?

does your back still hurt?

Uh, now it's my shoulder.

Um, one second. Can you wait? Paul?
