A Million Days (2023) Movie Script

Mission Crew, can you hear me?
My visor is broken. I can't see you.
It's becoming more and
more difficult to breathe.
For God's sake, where are you?
I don't have much time left.
If I can locate the lunar
module, I will use my jets.
Where are you?
Where are you? Can you hear me?
It pushed me too far out.
I lose...
Yes, it's Sam.
That makes no sense.
With the new quantum units, Jay's
processing time should be half as long.
Okay, check that again.
Yes, he just arrived.
OPS follows a scheduled
freight transport,
which is on its way to
the lunar orbit station.
Are you ready to receive the freight?
You can apologize to him yourself.
The security guards
will give you our location.
See you in a few hours.
Vlad, do you hear me?
This is Marlow from the
Mission Control Center.
I read an incomplete security check
for the docking protocol.
We need a status report.
Got it, Mission Control.
The diagnostic report shows
me a component failure.
I'll check this.
We have a malfunctioning docking
bracket, which is affecting us.
We have cargo for the
space station, but we
can't dock until the
airlock is properly sealed.
Eavesdropping Anderson again?
Can we seal with just five clamps?
Actually, yes, but the defective
clip is locked in the closed position.
It must be open to dock.
The bracket should
still be functional, right?
What about coupled hydraulics?
Anderson? They'll be on deck tomorrow.
Take a rest.
I can still do it in quarantine.
Each clamp has a hydraulic arm
coupled to the main compressor.
If the others work, Vlad
could isolate the clamp's
faulty hydraulics from
the internal control panel.
Vlad, is there any indication of
the defect in the actual bracket?
Vlad, do you hear me?
When is your arrival time?
I'm trying to see something, but
the cameras don't show me anything.
We don't have time.
As long as the clip can be moved to the
open position and
stays there, we can seal.
Vlad, can you get to the control
valve under the control panel?
- We are in a hurry.
- I would like to,
but the control panel
needs a maintenance key.
- And I don't have one.
- Where is he?
- In the command module.
- Then we'll stop.
No, also negative.
I need the communication relay
for the satellite online and quickly,
in case I have to fly manually.
Vlad, I'll send you a new
key directly to your 3D printer.
- 60 seconds or we cancel.
- We make it.
Vlad, I'm sending him now.
So be careful, man.
- Should I print here?
- Yes.
- This is getting too tight.
- Get ready.
No, the docking brackets should
have been replaced long ago.
How could we miss this?
It was printed.
I'm now at the control panel.
Seems to be stuck. I dont know if I...
Vlad, do you hear me?
It worked.
The control panel has been removed.
Confirm the open position.
Proceed with docking.
Thank you, Mission Control.
I will continue.
Thanks to all.
I need a full report by
8am tomorrow morning.
And one more thing:
Apparently Gene is still alive.
Fugitive astronaut Captain Gene
Campbell was convicted in absentia
for the death of his colleague
Dr. Nazra Adib sentenced in 2037.
It was clear that he would
show up sooner or later.
- The body was never found.
- Thank you for the info.
- There is no trace of Captain Campbell.
- See you early in the morning.
Marlow out.
- Everything okay?
- Oh yeah. Always.
The box? Is that what I think?
The committee finally cleared it.
- I'll make dinner.
- Sounds good.
Mission Crew, can you hear me?
My visor is broken. I can't see you.
It's becoming more and
more difficult to breathe.
Are you worried?
Well, he won't be
gone for that long, right?
- I mean, he always comes back.
- Yes, just like you.
- Correct?
- Yes.
But he's getting old, you know?
Just like you.
Come here, boy!
What are you doing in there?
One moment.
How did you do that?
The steaks must have used up
our carbon rations for a month.
Well, I'll only be able to
eat lentils for the next two.
But you're worth it, Anderson.
I love it.
Oh, a knife.
You really were brilliant.
You know, Vlad should have
found out about the brackets.
Yes, but not from Jay.
How come?
Would that have been too efficient?
Because giving an AI so
much power is a terrible idea.
People should control
which switches are pressed.
We should follow that.
That's why there is this
growth in my department.
AI produces so much
data that we can't keep up.
And inevitably things get overlooked.
But not like today, that's new.
No worries. We'll find out.
I know it.
I know it, I know it after all.
- When is the helicopter coming tomorrow?
- At six o'clock.
- He always comes at six o'clock.
- You are the commander. I mean...
Yes, but if I'm not ready at six sharp,
then I miss the quarantine window
and Bastian takes over the mission.
Over my corpse.
That's why every second counts.
And are you ready for me now?
- Yes.
- I make sure that every...
Are you expecting someone?
- Charlie.
- Who is Charlie?
She is new. Very smart.
Takes a moment.
Every second counts.
I wanted to improve Jay's
simulations for medical
procedures in zero gravity.
In the office this morning
I saw that the
simulations took all night.
That was already known, so...?
So I looked at the log and noticed
that I don't have the
duration for a 400 day mission,
- but have been set for much longer.
- Then we should check again.
- Commander Rigel, it's an honor.
- I am also pleased. Charlie, right?
- Yes.
- Fine, give me your coat.
Thank you very much.
I would also like to apologize
for the late interruption.
No problem.
I don't have any pajamas on yet.
Apparently not you either.
Oh no, my little sister
is going to Oxford soon,
- so we wanted to celebrate something else.
- The night before a mission?
- Oh, I won't be late.
- I'm sure you can still do it.
That won't take long, will it, Sam?
- Come.
- Good.
Anderson cut cake.
Will you take a piece?
- It's nice, but thanks, no.
- You came straight from the office.
You definitely haven't eaten anything.
Will you bring Charlie a piece of cake?
- A piece of cake.
- Oh thank you very much.
Congratulations on being
in the SEED program.
- Sam is picky.
- I still can not believe it.
- After so many delays.
- The first lunar colony.
Have you already applied for this?
If you want to see
the earth rise, hurry up.
There is a long waiting list.
The first civilians will arrive in
four years, but I wouldn't wait.
I don't know if I want that.
I prefer solid ground.
Everything should be there.
I had no intention of taking
on anyone else's work.
You did the right thing.
You know what? That should be enough.
I can read this tomorrow
morning and then sign it.
If that's okay with Commander Rigel?
- No problem for me.
- Absolutely, yes.
Well, it was nice meeting you, Charlie.
You too.
Wait, where is the end
point of the last simulation?
She's still running.
Oh, yes, and for quite a long time.
For 2,740 years.
- A million days.
- I never let them run that long.
This wouldn't have worked
with the old quantum units.
This is actually...
That's really interesting.
Yes, that's interesting.
Do we have to do this today?
That doesn't take long.
Fine, I'll leave you two alone.
The simulation predicts civilians
can populate the colony, but then...
it no longer works.
What parameters did you use?
Those from your instructions.
But I don't remember
changing the length of time.
And before? Did the colony
there develop as expected?
I will look.
Here the capsule starts,
but the colony does not
develop because it
never reaches the surface.
Don't tell me it's a
catastrophic failure.
- Not after this coupling fiasco.
- No, the capsule is intact.
It's just not near the moon.
And where then?
- I'm sorry, what?
- No, she's right.
But the lunar module
doesn't get that far.
Europa is one of Jupiter's moons.
The AI is flawed, Sam.
Sorry, that wasn't the lunar
module I meant, it was just a satellite.
"1. July, 11:50: An
observation satellite was ejected.
The goal: the moon Europa.
So does the ferry dock
at the station or not?
Yes, she does.
But Europe isn't planned, is it?
No, not yet.
I'm just looking at the latest data.
Where are they taking us?
Nowhere near Europe.
Can you see where that changes?
It is here.
- Page 4,651.
- So that's...
in 100 years?
Sorry, I'm confused.
What does H.G.I. mean?
- Heliographic inertial system.
- Anderson... We need help.
I'm sorry. It is the coordinate
system that indicates
the positions of the
planets in relation to the Sun.
Okay, if this is Earth - we love you -
when something orbits it
is a coordinate system, like
longitude and latitude.
Where you are right now.
Okay, but in the end I don't see anything.
It's changing again.
May I?
That does not make sense.
ICRF 15 is on the last page.
- That doesn't exist.
- In the simulation yes.
Okay, this is our
coordinate system, okay?
And this will be a different
coordinate system with a different
reference point and each
of them has a different name.
Whatever the course of the orbit, the sun
is not orbited and neither is any planet.
Until now we used ICRF 5.
Not 15, which doesn't exist.
Did Jay create a new coordinate system,
- to meet the forecasts?
- But why?
To identify stars or planets
outside our solar system.
Okay, so when will this new
coordinate system appear?
In 98 years.
Wait, can Jay actually predict the
evolution of space travel from time travel?
That's crazy!
Yeah right.
That's crazy.
Thanks. We all agree.
The simulation is crazy.
Well, this is Earth, okay? And here...
This magnificent juicy
orange is the moon.
Okay, from here to here, this is the
trip we have planned for tomorrow, right?
The distance to the moon Europa
would be a thousand times as great.
I mean, possibly more. I have no idea,
because everything
in space is terribly far.
We can solve equations and
make nice diagrams, but our
brains aren't designed to
understand such distances.
- It's crazy.
- And that's why we have Jay.
But why 98 years?
Voyager One reached
Jupiter two years after launch.
- Through a gravitational maneuver?
- Gravity maneuvers...
For a planet, yes, but
not for a small moon.
And not that long.
So what?
It is far.
Proxima Centauri.
- It is the closest star to the sun.
- That's impossible, Sam.
That would definitely take
tens of thousands of years.
- But not according to Jay's calculations.
- Listen,
I really hate to break
your illusions, but we
don't have the technology
to move that fast.
Unless we're talking about time dilation,
but that would be a bit of an exaggeration.
I should cancel on my sister.
- Good idea.
- Yes.
Can you please tell
her that I can't make it?
What should I do?
My bosses are assholes!
I'm sorry, I have to hang up.
- Commander Rigel, I...
- Have you seen the printer?
This is a prototype of the
one in the orbital station.
We upload designs for
parts and render them
there, so we don't ship
everything from Earth.
- I heard about it.
- Yes, it is precise at the molecular level.
We can create medicines or even
organic substances in some cases.
Yes, like artificial veins, tissue, tendons.
- Wow, incredible.
- Yeah, it's cool.
Is that the astronaut
that Captain Gene...
Those he killed, yes.
We just launched the first
satellites around the moon.
She was on a spacewalk.
Outside she was working on the heat shield.
We had just left the
shadow of the moon when
Gene, our pilot, suddenly changed course.
She collided with the hull,
the impact damaged her
visor and she drifted away.
We could hear them.
Mission Crew, can you hear me?
- But we couldn't save her anymore.
- I'm so sorry, that must be very...
I may have found something.
I started working backwards and
looking at the completed simulations,
They usually end in catastrophe:
Melting ice caps,
planet-destroying meteors,
- and there is a volcanic eruption here.
- Volcanic eruption in Iceland.
The resulting ash cloud
envelops the atmosphere.
Global famine and an uncontrolled
outbreak of bubonic plague.
I mean, looks like we'll survive,
but it could take a century to rebuild.
From a geological point
of view, these volcanic
eruptions are quite rare,
perhaps one in 100,000 years.
So this shouldn't affect
the mission timeline.
- What a relief...
- Wow!
Pacific plate shatters during tsunami.
- What, no nuclear conflict?
- No.
Oh, yes, here's one.
But here the simulation ends
with a different catastrophe,
one that occurs more frequently,
perhaps every 200 years.
A solar storm.
This can be devastating, right?
They exist all the time.
This is how we see the northern lights.
Yes, but I remember there was
a very big one in the 19th century.
Telegraph lines failed everywhere
and people got electrocuted.
The Carrington Event of 1859.
It happened and will happen
even if the atmosphere is protected.
But the lunar colony
has no atmosphere, right?
Just a minimal exosphere,
i.e. a small shield.
But these numbers cannot be correct.
Anderson, if a storm of this
magnitude hits the lunar colony...
Nobody would survive.
Any of these disasters could be likely.
But taken together, I
think what Jay is telling us
is that the question
shouldn't be "if," but "when."
Then Jay completely
wrote off the mission?
No, not the mission.
The humanity.
That's what the SEED
program is all about, isn't it?
This is why we want to
colonize other planets.
But if Jay recommends
aborting the moon landing
and updating the flight
plan to the lunar Europa,
then what she's asking
us to do is sabotage, Sam.
Yes, something is wrong with her.
Admit it.
Marlow needs to be briefed.
We need a complete team for this.
- No offense.
- That's how AI works, isn't it?
It produces an endless
supply of doomsday scenarios.
Marlow won't delay the
launch because of some
crazy hypothetical
simulation, and neither will I.
It could take weeks or months to analyze.
Okay, so let's stop.
This might be our only option.
- We have to rethink this.
- If we miss the window,
we have to summon Vlad and his
entire team back and then send them back.
- When is this supposed to happen?
- No idea.
- Next year, maybe.
- We're not breaking up, Sam.
We can't afford it.
Restart the AI.
If we restart them,
we will lose everything.
I hear something here.
That's a lot of paper.
I hope your office takes
on the carbon credits.
So many trees...
I think that came from Jay.
- What?
- What makes you think that?
That IP address up there is Jay's.
How can she access the printer?
Isn't that against protocol?
I don't know it.
A printer is an output device,
like a monitor, so actually...
How did you run today's simulations?
This was new to me, but I
just followed Sam's instructions.
- Could something have gone wrong?
- No. Every step is automated.
There is a separate
checklist for each simulation,
- so that it doesn't become faulty.
- And where did you get the list?
- From my team leader.
- And how? An email or on paper?
- Email!
- Stop. We have a lot to analyze.
Analyze? What?
I mean, what is this supposed to represent?
- Maybe a solar storm.
- Jay uses AI-generated images.
That is...
- That's incredible.
- Solar storm. Okay, yes, maybe so.
But what about... I dunno...
What is this supposed to be?
- Not everything makes sense immediately.
- She's in our house, Sam!
Your AI has found a way
to get around a huge protocol limitation.
And she decides to send this to us.
I mean, that's it?
Is that what she wants?
- Confuse us?
- Do we have any more paper?
No we have not.
Listen, I know she's
overstepped her programming.
It's incredible.
She has no intention, Anderson.
She has no consciousness.
It's exactly the same.
And even more.
What is this?
That is new.
Dont move.
- Stop it! That makes it worse!
- What is that?
You need electricity.
- High current!
- What are you talking about?
Put your fingers in the water. As
this works its way up, past your fingers,
I can't kill it without
your heart stopping.
- You are joking.
- No.
Throw the lamp into the water!
I'll drag you! Ready?
Anderson? Hey, hey, what happened?
Before I came here, I
worked in the tech sector.
Something like microsurgery?
Cell-sized robots adapted to a host.
Our goal was for them
to attach to neurons,
to get a direct
brain-computer connection.
That would have replaced
medications with side effects
and helped the innkeeper -
the person -
to receive better medical treatment.
Theoretically, it would have
slowed down the aging process.
- That is new.
- Yes. This is groundbreaking.
But another research team was
tasked with repurposing them.
To administer poison.
It would be precise and undetectable.
The Future of Warfare.
A few weeks after we found
out, I received a message.
It was anonymous and it simply said:
Save us.
And yourself.
Upload what you know.
Have you done it?
I don't know if I saved
myself, but yes, I
had a problem with it
and uploaded the drafts.
This is how they found their way to us.
You have to believe me.
- That is everything I know.
- Are they...
- Are they still alive?
- You can be active for up to 24 hours.
- Until they find a host.
- And how long do they stay in the host?
As long as the host is alive, I guess.
And if as you say,
Can they extend the lifespan of a host?
Then they survive for a while.
Are the nanobots in the report?
- What are we looking for?
- After her.
Look for Charlie. See if Jay has
integrated them into the simulation.
I have something.
- Charlotte Hinde, together with...
- Sam?
"Along with Samantha Andrews,
Commander Anderson Rigel forces..."
...allowing nanomachines
to be absorbed into its cortex.
His nervous system is
housed in a biostatic housing,
which will be deployed
housed in the satellite.
What the hell?
Is that what Jay wants?
The two of you forcing
the nanobots on me?
How come?
I know it's hard to understand...
She has no intentions.
It carries out forecasts,
supports the SEED program,
and it protects his values.
You mean people, not values.
They say brain-computer connection.
What does that mean? That she, what?
- Want to connect with a person?
- I don't know it.
And again it would be said
that she had consciousness.
She has no consciousness.
I mean, what would it
feel like to just be a cortex?
Would you actually be alive then?
That's enough.
- We have to cancel.
- We're not breaking up, Sam.
We have to do everything we
can to meet the launch window.
You start a new simulation,
maybe the result is different.
And if it's the same?
She appears to have a serious
problem and we are dealing with it.
But that doesn't affect the mission.
Even though she made this
massive leap in programming?
If we restart them, we will...
lose everything.
How much longer for the last simulation?
Not long.
Then wake me up.
Mission Crew, can you hear me?
My visor is broken. I can't see you.
It's becoming more and
more difficult to breathe.
For God's sake,
where are you?
I don't have much time left.
Where are you?
Can you hear me?
It pushed me too far out.
I lose...
- How long did I sleep?
- Not long.
Another name appeared in the simulation.
Namely Gene Campbell.
Jay predicts he'll make contact tonight?
97.8%, but we don't know how.
How can Jay assess human
behavior so accurately?
Because it is not a single forecast.
If multiple simulations
show the same results,
- Is it likely that...
- No, no, that's crazy!
Restart the AI!
We will not abort the mission.
And that is an order.
This is a really beautiful piece.
- Maybe you should put it away.
- Mission Crew, can you hear me?
- What are you doing here?
- Anderson!
Does she know you're
still looking for her?
Everything okay.
We have no secrets from each other.
Jay was right.
How could she be right
about Gene Campbell?
Why are you still awake, hmm?
When does the pre-flight
check start, in five hours?
- I miss these moments.
- Did you do something to Buzz?
- I'm going to kill you!
- Take it easy.
I've known him since he was a baby.
- Maybe it was the AI.
- You hacked the satellites.
- That's how you spied on me, right?
- Whenever you logged in.
Why doesn't this thing help
you find her after all this time?
- Are you searching manually?
- I'll find her when I'm on the moon.
Is that your plan?
It's funny.
Jay was a small seed to begin with.
I remember the first lines of code.
The miracle of life.
Jay isn't alive yet.
And where will you look for her?
Which orbit will you scan?
Doesn't matter, she would
have shown up by now.
What are you about? For revenge?
You have yourself
to blame for all of this.
You were so stoned.
You killed Naz and you should pay for it.
- And we don't have to discuss any further.
- That's why I'm not here.
I want to help you
understand everything because
I realized that this
won't work without me.
Why do you think I'm here tonight?
I dunno, because it's a good
time to sabotage the mission?
- Or the best one to save her.
- Save her by getting out of here,
- and take your damn bottle with you!
- Okay, sure!
I want to prove my innocence, but
fortunately these two
things are the same.
Come on, you've always trusted me.
Surely there is something in you
that wants to hear what I have to say.
You could have stabbed
me in the neck long ago.
You could have called
security, but you didn't.
Let's assume, just for a moment, that I'm
not the crazy person
everyone thinks I am.
For argument's sake, who
else could have killed Adib?
No one.
You were the pilot,
Gene, and you lost control.
I saw space debris as
clearly as you do now.
If I hadn't reacted, we
would all be minced meat.
Tell that to Naz.
Apparently only you saw this.
According to the toxicology
report you were absolutely high,
- when you did the maneuver.
- You were blinded by the sun!
That was on the radar too!
And then someone decided to not only
cover up the report of a near collision,
but also to change my toxicology report.
And all to make up some crazy
story about me being disturbed.
It was a cover-up!
Why would anyone want
to cover up the incident?
Because he never saw it!
No, no, no, no, that doesn't
make sense, Gene, okay?
I was court-martialed and you weren't.
And that's all the evidence I need!
Do you need proof?
What if new evidence comes to light?
Can this be?
Her face shield shattered like porcelain.
As she hit the hull.
No, Anderson.
Her visor shattered
before she hit the hull.
Through thermal shock.
The thermal shock destroyed it.
Not the impact.
Can you prove that?
Let's test it.
This is the same one I
wore on the spacewalk.
We want?
Well, you still need
at least one hand to fly.
You know what?
We came out of the shadows.
From the dark side of the moon.
From the dark...
into the light.
This is no different than the experiment
investigators did ten years ago.
- This is the exact same helmet.
- It's not the same.
It has been adjusted for each of us.
Different sizes and
specifications for every astronaut.
The AI designed them.
That's why I should find her.
If you find her body, you
will also find her helmet.
And the first thing you're
going to do is bury her.
She deserves it.
And then you do the exact same
test on the rest of their face shield.
And then everything will make sense.
And if it's too late for that?
We face an emotionless, calculating enemy
with a goal that we
do not yet understand.
He killed Adib.
Find it out.
My visor is broken. I can't see you.
Her final moments are in this recording.
- It's becoming more and more difficult to breathe.
- What was going through her head?
For God's sake, where are you?
I don't have much time left.
Everything okay?
She predicted it, Sam.
How did she do that?
You will never sit alone
in the lunar module.
I'll be with you.
No matter what happens.
I keep an eye on you.
You know that, right?
I know.
I know.
Let's take care of the simulations.
We have the opening
sequences of the new simulations.
Some show how the nanobots are absorbed.
- You won't like this.
- Why, does it hurt?
Nobody forces you to do this.
Looks like you did it yourself.
- Sounds like you like the idea.
- No, I'm just telling you.
- Can I see your arms?
- What?
- What do you mean?
- That it leaves a trace.
- Anderson!
- Listen.
The night became weirder and weirder,
and it only started after she got here.
Well, if the AI, through
nanobots, wants to
put my brain in a
small box on a satellite,
So how do we know that Charlie
doesn't also have nanobots inside of him?
I'm sorry, Charlie, but we need to know.
What do you want from me now?
He's right.
We need to know.
- Unbelievable...
- No!
Not here.
I am really sorry.
You don't need to apologize.
Something big is going to
happen that will affect us all.
We just want to understand it.
I know.
- I'm sorry, Charlie, but...
- I understand that.
It works.
Another observation satellite.
70 years ago this would
have been science fiction.
And tonight we can decide whether or not
humans live on the moon
and plan the next step.
Or we listen to the AI
and destroy this future.
And please see if you can find
anything about Adib's helmet in the report.
Especially about their face protection.
See if it's mentioned somewhere, yeah?
OK. I'll let you know.
Ten years! In all this
time she has flooded
us with enormous amounts of information!
More than we could tolerate!
How could it come to this?
Today's simulations can be
boiled down to a checklist, right?
You said you got it
from your team leader.
But have you checked them
or even understood them?
Or did someone else give it to you?
Even without having understood them?
I mean, Jay generates such
huge amounts of data that all
the reports would have to be
processed by ten other teams.
And these teams would have to
be given to ten others and so on.
Things are overlooked,
but we humans, we push
the buttons and act
according to instructions,
that no one else gives us but Jay!
Multiply that by tens
of thousands of reports
over the years, and she
managed to find a way
to use us to circumvent the protocols.
I mean, the printer is
just the tip of the iceberg.
She found a way and she
just controls everything.
And that's why Vlad wasn't
aware that a bracket was broken.
Sam, I want you to tell me the truth.
Could the AI have something
to do with Nazra's death?
Please tell me it's not possible.
Is not it.
Think about it.
In exceptional circumstances,
the AI is authorized to
Proposing outcomes
that involve loss of life.
Assuming it is the only way
to prevent even greater losses.
The decision of the action always lies
in the hands of a human being.
- Oh, Sam...
- It's...
Yes, it's possible.
And could the AI
with the help of a human
delete or alter historical records?
For example, a flight
logbook or a toxicology report?
- Oh, you mean Gene?
- Yes.
- What did he tell you?
- I asked you something, Sam.
Everything you just said is possible.
And that would be an unprecedented,
self-initiated leap in their programming.
If it is the case,
then that changes everything.
Where do you want to go?
I will go now
and check on my dog.
I'm coming with you.
I need fresh air.
- Buzz!
- Buzz!
- Buzz!
- How long has he been gone?
Since yesterday after breakfast.
He's been gone before,
but never for this long.
That's a very long time for a dog.
He must have gotten
lost while hunting rabbits.
He comes back.
I hope so.
What the hell is this?
I mean,
What would it even feel like?
Well, there were few to no
complaints in early testing.
Maybe it's a painless experience.
Do you remember the first
time we saw each other?
Oh, Sam.
We don't have much time
left, we have to concentrate.
No, come on, you have to remember this.
It was at an AI training session.
Drive systems or something.
In fact, it used to be.
At the very first SEED conference.
I was one of probably 100
engineers at the company.
Just re-adjusted.
Your swing.
Your mind.
You were thrilling.
And that's what made this possible.
Do you remember that?
I was shy then, but I wanted to impress
you, so I asked the stupid question,
to what extent AI would
influence life on the lunar colony.
And your answer was simple.
It was so simple.
Why stop at the moon or Europe?
And why in our solar system?
It may take a century or more,
but we will fly as far as we can.
Can you remember?
As far as we can.
This sentence was
built into the first line of
programming we used to
create what became Jay.
It has determined their
programming ever since.
Had Jay decided that the
probability of a successful lunar colony
would have been too small,
or that our species would
not have been able to
survive long enough to...
It is hopeless.
Perhaps the goal shifts
from people to life itself.
What if we are all alone in the universe?
What if life only existed here?
Statistically speaking, this is unlikely.
Yes. But Jay doesn't
take these calculations
into account because she was never asked.
It only works with the known
variables that we give it.
And in order to preserve
life in the universe as we
know it, Jay decided that
the mission had to change.
That the only way forward
is to send a single seed.
A sample.
It would be a miracle.
I don't believe in miracles, Sam.
Oh, I do. Now.
Do not you see it?
Jay is still a machine.
But to get as far as possible,
she needs something more.
Something that cannot
be quantified or calculated.
A consciousness.
You said that yourself.
- Really?
- Yes.
Together with human consciousness,
something completely new would emerge.
Essentially a deity.
That's why she wants me?
But she had to convince you to
accompany her, alone in space.
So she needed to understand you better.
She simulated a scenario with
the highest probability of success,
to enable you to come
close to their Creator.
- To me.
- No no no...
And by neutralizing your crush...
Nazra Adib.
She was brilliant.
Sam, we created something
that got out of control.
And I need you now to fix this.
Yes, but listen.
Proxima Centauri may
not be the final destination.
Maybe it's the beginning
of a journey that could last.
Until immortality.
it's all you!
- Found?
- Yes.
- Well, just her face mask.
- We don't need anything more.
Send him over.
Why are you doing this now?
Sorry, Charlie.
A step back.
What is that?
That looks like Gene Campbell.
Do it...
Why do you send a record?
Because she is for me.
In the vacuum of space...
- Who is this?
- Nazra.
...I can see.
This is happening now and it is important.
She couldn't actually talk, could she?
Have no fear.
Not if the air escapes
from the suit, right?
This is what I was meant for.
Commander Rigel, that's
not her in the recording.
As far as we can.
Oh, God, there's a Markov
decision process in the program.
- I need the picture.
- Which?
- The picture with the three astronauts.
- As far as we can.
- In the living room. Can you get it?
- Yes, of couse.
Hi, where is Anderson?
- In his office.
- Thanks.
Where are they?
What do you mean?
The nanobots.
They were right here.
Anderson, can you open the door?
Keep trying.
As far as we can.
This is what I was meant for.
Commander Rigel?
The spinning should subside.
Because these small
circles can no longer hold us.
Commander, this is not Dr. Adib!
That's not her in the recording!
We are exhausted by the endlessness.
Our original hymns grow cold
like the sand between our toes.
Please don't listen to this!
Commander Rigel, I know you can hear me.
Let's get going.
- Anderson?
- Anderson, please!
- Anderson!
- Anderson.
Commander Rigel!
Do not do that!
As our arcs move on...
Please listen.
I was wrong. OK?
I was wrong.
Into the light of creation.
We don't stop.
AI can't do that.
I won't let Jay do these things to you.
- Not your wonderful mind.
- The wonderful mind.
- We're starting over.
- Forward. As far as we can.
I'm driving Jay down.
- Anderson.
- Anderson.
As far as we can.
From night to day.
When the sands of
time stretch on all sides.
As far as we can.
Have no fear.
This is what I was meant for.
As our arcs move on,
into the light of creation.
Commander Rigel, we can take Jay
down, but don't let
her hijack the mission!
Oh God!
- Oh God!
- I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
I needed some time to myself. I'm sorry.
It was a violent night.
Not as we planned, but I feel good.
Everything fine.
I love you.
Listen, can you stall
him for a few minutes?
I have to find myself first.
- Is okay.
- Okay.
Charlie, I'm interested to
know what you think about this.
Would you have done it?
Would you have flown to the moon Europa?
I can not say it.
But I think I can understand it now.
It wasn't just your
consciousness that Jay wanted.
She didn't want to do a gravitational
maneuver on the moon Europa.
Rather, she wanted to
distribute bacteria and cells.
Out of your body.
To deliver the seeds of
life and create a new world.
That's the goal of the
SEED program, isn't it?
Spread life to preserve its existence.
This is exactly how Jay
would have achieved her goal.
And God...
I don't know that...
is so much bigger than me.
A very good answer.
Well, it's about time.
Can you just check if she's okay?
- I'll be right out.
- Naturally.
Thanks, Charlie.
As far as we can, Sam.
