Now the three astronauts are in big trouble as they don’t have enough oxygen to survive they tik talk with each other and think of a solution. While the discussion came out to be in a negative way Barnett tells Zoe and David of the possibility to kill Michael as he was a burden for them and he was not skilled enough to complete the mission.

Zoe disagreed and told Barnett to seek a solution rather than killing Michael. The three astronauts decide not to tell the situation Michael as he might not have the mindset to accept the truth. Just like this 3 days passed away and there was no other solution that they could think of. They had only seven days left more before the oxygen supply it comes short for the mission. Zoe used to do the dressing of Michael’s wound, and while doing this she asked him to take off his shirt and Michael had burn scars all over his body. Michael tells how he got scars over his body while he was in his apartment and there was a fire that took place.

They go in the open space and this part of the movie will make the audience at their toes. Marvelous cinematography and graphics can be seen in this part of the film. Zoe and David make it to the other end and check the oxygen. Luckily there was more than 500 PS of oxygen available in the tanks that were sufficient for all four of them to complete the mission. Zoe fills up one oxygen cylinder and while filling the other one the alarms goes off. There was a solar storm that was on the way and they had only 20 minutes to reach back to the station. Leaving the second cylinder that took the first one with them. On the way back zoe lost control over the rods and exceeded her speed in space. And while landing down on the surface the first cylinder slipped off the wire and went deep into space. David soon approached from behind and took her inside the space shuttle is there was a solar storm behind them.

The four of them were at the Indus fair and thought that now their life would completely end. Although there was a getaway from this situation, there was one cylinder still left on the other end of the spaceship that could save the life of 3 people. Annoying this one has to die Michael agrees to go back in the solar storm and bring back the left oxygen. But zoe disagreed as Michael has the less technical experience and what if he might lose the left oxygen then there will be two deaths instead of one.

Questions Unanswered

How did Michael end up in the spaceship, And why did zoe killed herself instead of David and Barnett even when they both had the technical experience?

The answer is simple Michael wanted to be the part of the program and might have purposely put himself in such a situation where he ended up in space, but it could also be possible that he might have been working there and the ship went on suddenly leaving him stuck in the shuttle. And Zoe was another good soul who couldn’t see people getting hurt, as seen from the start she fought for Michael and her character always wanted others to be happy, thus she sacrificed herself to save the others.
