Government sources tell us

the world's energy resources

will be fully exhausted

within five years.

Space Station was

completed today...

designed for a risky experimental mission.

Onboard the orbiting lab,

is the Shepard Particle Accelerator.

If astronauts can get

the Shepard working,

it would produce free energy,

solving the earth's energy crisis forever. French officials


new energy rationing provisions...

...the dissolution of

these international alliances-- effort

is merely a drain on financial

and energy resources...


I'll tell him.



Did you move at all?

Forward or side to side?

Joe says you owe him a call.

Did he ask you?

I feel like honking a horn.

Yeah, because that will make

loads of difference.

Are you serious?


You've started a trend.

Come on.

That's like the fourth blackout today.


Did he ask you?


You know what I said.

I'm not leaving you.

That mission could be years.

You said you could be back in six months.

Do you want me to go?

Joe knows what we've been through.

And yet he still wants you on the crew.

-There are other officers.

-Yeah, but he called you.

Why are you pushing this?

Why do you think?

Forget about me and what I want,

which is for you to stay.

Why do you think?

Because you are sweet.

Because people are starving.

Because our energy supplies

are running out.

And this mission could unlock

an endless supply of power

that could save us all.

If you go...

you and I...

will survive.

I'm afraid if you don't...

No one will.

TAD throttle control, 8636.

Line secure.

Accelerator system status?

It's holding for pre-ignition.

Shepard team, you are go

for countdown.

We've all got fingers

crossed here at Mission Control.

Let's makethis first one count.

- Status boosters?

- Go.

-The GNC.

- Go.

Power up.

Commander, Shepard team

standing by for your go.

On my count...

Huntsville, this is Commander Kiel.

Firing...has failed.

Morning, beautiful.

-Sorry, I woke you.

-No. Look.

I'm working.

I've got a patient today with...


coxa vara-pericarditis syndrome.

-What's that?

-I'll tell you after I do my homework.

I'm getting sick of only seeing you

on a screen.

-You okay?


It's the rest of the world

I'm worried about.

You see the same news that I do.

It's madness.

Oil wars are spreading.

Russia is threatening

ground invasion now.

Can you believe that?

Ground invasion, which will

waste their oil reserves.


normal life is

hanging by a thread.


We're all on edge.

And we only have enough fuel

for three more firings.

-I remember.

-If this doesn't work...

I can't even think about what happens

down there.

I don't think any of us are feeling...


I miss you more everyday.

Like I miss them.

And maybe I'm an idiot...

but I'm hopeful.

And not just for the work

that you're doing.

We can't go back in time

and know what we know now.

But I was thinking...

Maybe when you get back--

Welcome to American Sunrise...


Six hundred and ninety-four.

Six hundred and ninety-four days

I've kept our O2,

CO2, N2, hydrogen, water vapor and methane

at optimal levels.

You know how many pressure leaks

we've had?

Not one.

No microbe overgrowth, nothing.

-You know why?

-This is a long speech, Volkov.

Because I disinfect the decks

every 72 hours.

I disinfect the decks, actually.

If you have a point, I'd make it now.

There's one part of this station.

One part that is not working.
