MARS (2016) s02e06 Episode Script

The Shakeup

1 JAVIER: Previously on Mars.
JOHAR: We have to perform a caesarian immediately.
AMELIE: No, I'm not ready.
What's wrong with her? What's wrong with my baby? MARTA: You need to tell us where the water is.
KURT: You're one crazy bitch, you know that? MARTA: I came here to find life, to study life, but not at the expense of it.
ANIKA: Lukrum should be stopped, but they can't be.
WOMAN: The resolution to impose sanctions against Lukrum Industries has not passed.
MIKE: I need you to sever the energy transfer to Lukrum Colony.
KURT: I got a crew that's about to suffocate because your lunatic number two decided to cut power to my camp.
HANA: That power was supplying the entire camp, and cutting them off compromised their grid.
We nearly lost their colony, and everyone in it.
Confine him to his quarters.
ROBERT: And that's why I'm leaving.
I need to be somewhere where I can fulfill my purpose.
We both know that place is Lukrum.
HANA: We have nothing to show for it.
Not water, not Joon, and now I'm losing you too.
We're coming in too fast and Everyone is burning bright 182 seconds, baby And heaven is a trick of the light Cold hell, my love HANA: It's hard to be patient.
It's not in our nature.
The solar mirror project is at 22% completion.
And although temperatures have risen slightly, Visual evidence of a success hasn't been seen.
No water on the surface, not a cloud in the sky.
Still, we couldn't have gotten even this far without our partners.
Though it appears they now have a partnership of their own.
As they did with Russia.
Lukrum has brokered an independent deal with the Chinese.
To build them a colony on Mars.
All of this has left IMSF vulnerable to powerful business interests.
But while the struggle for control continues on Earth.
No one can really control what happens on Mars.
The planet has a way of making sure actions have consequences.
Both physical.
And emotional.
But humans are nothing, if not determined.
And while some may question our presence here at all, we are here.
And our numbers are growing.
AMELIE: She's using less supplemental oxygen.
Though lung development is hard to measure with certainty, particularly in this situation.
AMELIE: But her basic reflexes are good.
JAVIER: And she's gained weight.
JOHAR: We can't be sure how well she can breathe and eat on her own just yet.
AMELIE: I hate that she's on a ventilator, that she has to be kept sedated.
I haven't even held her.
JAVIER: How much longer does she need to stay like this? JOHAR: I appreciate this is difficult, but given the unknowns, I think it's best if she remains within a controlled environment for as long as possible.
JAVIER: It's already been two months.
Are you saying six more, a year, forever? AMELIE: Don't you understand, we cannot take any chances.
She's still too fragile.
LESLIE: I've tried, perhaps too hard, to prove that I wasn't just a scientist.
I let my ego get in the way.
Perhaps my fear.
And it's made me complicit in what's happened.
I should have seen it coming.
Again, I didn't.
Losing the sanction vote has left me powerless here.
HANA: Leslie, I know how hard it is to lead as a woman, as a person of conscience, as someone who's grieving.
But Joon knew what she was doing when she picked you to succeed her, and I have complete faith in you.
To turn this thing around, and put us on the right side of history.
JARED: What is it going to take before we change our ways? Is it going to take something awful, some crisis? We tend to respond to crises, but people also take long term views.
Sometimes we don't need to be woken up by disaster.
Sometimes we look ahead to the future.
PILOT (OVER RADIO): 1500 feet is our target altitude.
We want to be above or below the clouds, but not in them.
MAN (OVER RADIO): Okay, yeah, that sounds good.
JOHN: Flying along for hours at a time over sea ice, seeing the big changes that really are happening.
That's where I get the sense of the Earth's fragility.
I think the planet is in peril, and we are being careless in some ways.
PILOT (OVER RADIO): That's 10,000 in the clear.
JOHN: NASA's Operation Icebridge is the largest aerial survey ever conducted of the Earth's polar ice.
My desk is a seat in an airplane, and my office window is the view out on the North Pole.
The ultimate goal is to inform both the US public and the world about the changing state of the planet.
WOMAN (OVER RADIO): We are ready for the launch.
STEPHEN: We think of NASA as this organization that sends us out to the moon and beyond, but actually most of NASA's budget is spent on making Earth a more survivable place for human beings.
REPORTER (OVER TV): NASA's not just flying into space these days.
They're flying over the oil disaster.
REPORTER (OVER TV): Above the Earth, a dozen NASA satellites are tracking global warming as we speak.
CHARLES: It is absolutely critical that we understand Earth's environment because this is the only place that we have to live.
STEPHEN: Information is survivability, and NASA keeps everybody alive on Earth.
In ways that people can't even imagine.
JOHN: The changes that we've in the seen in the Arctic have actually outpaced the most grim of the model predictions, and it's going to lead to a great number of changes that we as a species are going to have to deal with.
What is the worst case scenario? They're worried that we're going to have to suffer before we improve the way we do things.
NAOMI: I think there's no shortage of sort of shocking events that should be acting as that wake-up call.
REPORTER (OVER TV): Under a state of emergency.
REPORTER (OVER TV): 200,000 gallons leaking a day.
REPORTER (OVER TV): Well water full of methane gas.
NAOMI: And it's not for lack of shocks that change hasn't happened.
Why would we imagine that in going to Mars that narrative wouldn't repeat once again? Keep an eye on that heat exchanger.
- Is it jammed again? - Yeah, there's no moving it.
KURT: Shep, what are you guys doing out there? SHEP: Trying everything we can to get this thing going again, but it's not looking good.
KURT: We need to crank up the RPM, we're getting nowhere.
Push it to 50 if you have to.
SHEP: Affirmative, sir.
JEN: We've gone less than a centimeter in over an hour.
Shall I increase downforce to 70 kilograms? KURT: Did that work last time? No.
That's not going to help.
That bit is trapped again.
Damn it! Lukrum is making deals left and right, but they can't build a thing if we can't deliver the resources to build it with.
SHEP: Well, I guess we can kiss our bonuses goodbye.
We're not going to get through this shelf before the end of the year, so do you want to change locations before we kill another bit? KURT: No, not when every report says water is just a few meters down.
I'm not drilling another hole.
This is it.
And we're getting water today.
Old school.
WOMAN: It's still hard to believe such a minor mutation could behave this way.
It's fascinating, really.
But not worth the price we paid, allowing us to study it.
WOMAN: You couldn't have known.
Cameron said it presented identically.
MARTA: The environments weren't identical.
And I could have insisted on different protocols.
I should have.
HANA: Marta.
Lukrum's within hours of reaching liquid water.
MARTA: Of course.
Of course they'd be the ones to get to it first.
The idea of a second genesis and all it could unlock for science, it means nothing to them.
HANA: The reason I know it's happening is because Kurt reached out.
He's invited you to go collect samples.
KURT: Careful guys.
Don't want anyone to get hurt, just want to get what we're after.
Walking it in slowly, sir.
KURT: Alright, let's get it lowered and get it done.
SHEP: Initiating final prep before detonation.
KURT: Take it all the way down.
CREWMAN: Keep an eye on that heat exchange.
JEN: Are you okay with what he's doing? SHEP: Yeah, I mean, I have to be.
- JEN: Do you? - SHEP: Jen, he's our boss.
JEN: I know, I just, I don't think he's thought it all the way through.
We do this sort of thing on Earth all the time, but we don't know how SHEP: Stop.
JEN: What are you saying, that we're not friends, that I can't talk to you about something that's bothering me, like detonating explosives.
SHEP: We're getting paid to do two THINGS: find water, follow orders.
That's what we're going to do.
DANNY: You hear we're making the deadline? Yeah, with a little help.
KURT: You know, why don't you to add some boosters, too.
Make sure we get this in one shot.
JEN: Yes, sir.
SHEP: Can I get your bag for you? KURT: Marta, come on up front.
Glad you could make it.
MARTA: I appreciate you having me.
Though I must say I didn't expect the invite.
KURT: Well, we know how much this water thing means to you science types.
To be honest, it wasn't my idea.
You have a fan back home.
- MARTA: Your daughter? - KURT: Name's Chelsea, and she wants to be a microbiologist when she grows up.
Go figure, huh? VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Incoming call from Lukrum Colony, Robert Foucault.
JAVIER: Long time.
How are you, my friend? ROBERT: I should be asking you.
How's the baby? JAVIER: Same.
Which is good enough for now.
Nice outfit.
ROBERT: Yeah, I'm still getting used to it.
Listen, how do you feel about the use of controlled explosives at a depth of around 300 meters? JAVIER: I'm not sure.
Still a lot of unknowns about what's beneath the surface.
It's an old strike slip zone, but most think the planet's core has gone cold.
It doesn't mean it's a good idea, though.
But if that's what you guys are doing, you really should share it with Hana.
ROBERT: Yeah, why don't you tell her, then? JAVIER: You can't tell her yourself? ROBERT: Just tell her, okay? 'Cause they're doing it today.
HANA: IMSF should have been notified.
I should have been notified.
JAVIER: Not like they ever ask for permission.
HANA: Doesn't mean I can't demand an explanation.
What time did Robert say it was happening? JAVIER: He didn't.
HANA: Mae, contact Lukrum Command.
KURT: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, go.
MARTA: I had no idea you were going to use explosives.
Did you get clearance for that? KURT: Sensors tripped.
Water's making its way to the surface.
SHEP: Whoa, whoa, found it? We found water, baby! KURT: Whatever works, right? - Nice job.
- SHEP: Whoo! KURT: Alright, let's go take a look at what we came for.
You coming? MARTA: Yeah.
KURT: Water.
MARTA: So your pipes are heated, then.
KURT: Well, last thing we need is more ice to form on the surface.
Hey guys, let's make a hole.
When that water comes through, I'm gonna want the lady to get her samples.
And there it is.
MARTA: My God, water.
KURT: Go ahead.
Get your samples.
MARTA: Damn you, you found it.
You really found it.
KURT: We were going to get it sooner or later, and sooner's always better.
You think there's life in that? MARTA: I know there is.
KURT: Get to the bus! Let's go, you're with me.
SHEP: Get down, get down! (EXPLOSIONS).
The hull's been breached, everybody out! ROBERT: Everyone get to the buses! MAN: Go, go, go! ROBERT: Go, go, go, let's go! (BEEPING).
AMELIE: Help! HANA: Everyone take cover! (SHOUTING) MIKE: What's happening! - JAVIER: Is she okay? - AMELIE: Yeah.
JAVIER: Are you? HANA: System status.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Primary systems functional.
HANA: Structural breaches? VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Negative.
HANA: Contact Lukrum Command.
They must have gotten hit a lot harder than us.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Unable to initiate communication.
Lukrum Colony shows no signs of activity.
KURT: Jen, you all right? Yeah? Okay.
Shep, I'm headed back to the colony, okay? I'm leaving you in charge.
SHEP: Are you sure you don't want us to go with you? KURT: No, you stay here and make sure everybody else is okay, and get a load up on another bus.
- SHEP: Alright.
- KURT: Are you hurt at all? - JEN: We did this.
- SHEP: I know Jen, I know.
KURT: Come with me.
MARTA: What? KURT: I can't be responsible for anything else happening to an Olympus Town crew member on my watch.
The safest place to be right now is in a vehicle.
I need you to go, now.
Come on.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Distress beacon detected at Lukrum Colony.
HANA: That's something, at least.
- Keep trying to make contact.
- JOHAR: We've done a head count.
Just a few minor injuries, mostly rattled nerves here.
WOMAN: Still nothing.
HANA: Well we know that they have survivors, so let's deploy rescue teams.
We'll head out first with the medical team.
Thank God Robert modified those rovers for faster speeds.
KURT: It was my call.
Doesn't make a difference that it fell right on time, does it? MARTA: The road to hell is paved with our best intentions.
DAVID: Will we make mistakes on Mars? Yes.
Will things happen that were unintended consequences? Yes.
Human cultures have these checks and balances that they come to sometimes the hard way.
NAOMI: We are still in dialogue with the natural world, and now the response comes roaring back and says, "You think you're in charge?" I see climate change as a message from our planet that is being spoken to us in a language of floods and fires and droughts, and what it is telling us is you have been living a dream.
Every action has a reaction.
REPORTER (OVER TV): A powerful earthquake rattled central Oklahoma Saturday.
6 quake.
REPORTER (OVER TV): Linked to the practice of fracking deep into the earth.
REPORTER (OVER TV): The latest epicenter of concern over Oklahoma's oil and gas industry.
JOHN: The planet is changing now, partly as a result of human activity.
MAN: Today's type of flight is going to be a sea ice flight.
We're going to heard out to the north of Greenland into the Arctic Ocean.
JOHN: In some ways, the decline of Arctic sea ice is probably the most dramatic story in all of climate change.
MAN: Carbon dioxide from cars, trucks and power plants is driving the rise in global temperature.
WOMAN: The Arctic is warming faster than any other place on Earth.
MAN: Satellite data revealed Greenland is losing 100 billion tons of ice each year.
JOHN: We see entire buildings worth of ice disappearing just in the course of a year.
So some scientists think that all Arctic sea ice will disappear in just a few decades.
We're doing that ourselves to some degree.
We have the technology and the capability to effect planet scale environments.
ADAM: We're a powerful species, right.
But if we don't recognize that and make the changes, then we're going down.
STEPHEN: I'm hopeful that we've learned lessons as humans on Earth.
But when we go to Mars, it almost doesn't matter because the cost of being foolish on Mars is so high that you will fail.
MAN: What's happening? Ma'am, what should we do? LESLIE: It happened 20 minutes ago.
There's nothing we can do.
MAN: Sir.
ROLAND: What is it? MAN: There's been a quake on Mars.
It seems to have started near the drill site.
REPORTER (OVER TV): The live stream footage shows what's been called a Mars quake at the site of the drilling operation led by Lukrum Industries.
REPORTER (OVER TV): Perhaps then we'll have the answer to the question being asked around the world: what triggered the quake, and what does it mean for the future of colonizing Mars? KURT: Wow.
Dear God.
MARTA: The people over there.
KURT: Hey, who have we got on the bus? Come in.
Come in! ROBERT: Foucault here.
And 12 others, I'm not sure how many more are inside.
KURT: Copy.
- I'm going in.
You stay put.
- MARTA: I'm going with you.
Kurt, Kurt.
This is on me.
What'd I do? I'm sorry.
Dear God.
Damage detected.
Low pressure warning.
Low pressure warning.
Oxygen level critical.
HANA: We experienced only minor damage here in Olympus Town.
All personnel here are accounted for.
Our systems are fully operational.
We've not been able to make contact with Lukrum Colony, but we received their distress signal.
We're deploying rescue teams now.
I'll update you when I know more.
MAN: Ma'am.
We've received another communication.
Roland St.
John is on his way to see you.
JOHAR: Oh my God.
ROBERT: Hana, is that you? HANA: Robert! Where are you? ROBERT: In the bus, just after the airlock.
A bunch of us were able to get inside before it all came down.
Kurt's inside looking for any others.
JOHAR: This is Dr.
Johar here.
Is everyone all right in there, Robert? ROBERT: Yeah, no injuries.
But we only have so much oxygen.
HANA: Is the vehicle functional? ROBERT: We tried to drive as far away from the structure as we could, but it's no point in going much further without EVA suits, and without knowing how you guys were doing.
HANA: More rovers are here to take everyone back to Olympus Town safely.
Hang in there while we go in.
Be careful.
HANA: We will.
I'm glad you're safe.
ROBERT: Yeah, me too.
HANA: Okay, let's go.
MARTA: Hana! HANA: Marta.
I thought you were at the drill site.
MARTA: I was.
Kurt's inside.
He's been in there for a while.
HANA: Okay, let's go.
We've got at least one casualty here.
Let's spread out.
Go to the back.
You guys be careful.
Everyone stay in contact.
JOHAR: Galley's in here.
We can get to it if we move this stuff out of the way.
JOHAR: There are survivors.
About half a dozen, by my count.
MARTA: Make that seven survivors.
JOHAR: They'll need helmets and suits to get them out of here, though.
HANA: Thank God.
Some weren't so lucky over here.
Stay with them.
I'll start on equipment once we finish this sweep.
Kurt! I think he's pinned.
I need some help over here.
Hang on I'm coming.
Almost there.
MARTA: Is he okay? HANA: He's dead.
JAVIER: What the hell.
Mae, systems check.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Temporary power loss self-corrected.
No structural damage sustained.
All systems functional.
WOMAN: At least it was only a three-second aftershock.
JAVIER: That's three seconds too long.
Comms, Medical Bay ISO room.
AMELIE: Something's wrong with the incubator.
This indicator light keeps flickering.
It got banged up before, and when the power went down, I don't know, maybe it's broken.
JAVIER: Which indicator? AMELIE: Mae, O2 SAT reading.
JAVIER: What's going on? Which indicator? AMELIE: The oxygen indicator.
Mae says it's working fine.
But it doesn't seem right.
Something's wrong.
ROLAND: It was due to circumstances beyond our control.
LESLIE: Do you really expect anyone to believe that? ROLAND: Well, with your help and a joint press conference, yes.
With IMSF in our corner, you'd be amazed at how much sway your outfit has in shaping positive public opinion.
LESLIE: This is not the same as the outbreak, Roland.
This can't be contained.
Visual and seismic evidence has been shared around the world.
ROLAND: I'm well aware.
But quakes aren't my concern.
The perception that Lukrum triggered one, that's, that's another story.
LESLIE: You detonated underground explosives.
ROLAND: Yeah, on Mars.
The world isn't just reconsidering my organization's impact on the planet.
They're debating mankind's very presence there, which impacts your organization.
You have to understand that to assuage public fears about colonization, we, you and I, have to present a united front.
LESLIE: I'll resign first.
ROLAND: Oh really? What? So the entire world knows that you, much like your late husband, were too weak to handle the pressure? Look, there's no reason why we can't coexist.
I want IMSF to survive.
LESLIE: As long as Lukrum's in control.
ROLAND: Control's a harsh word.
I see it as providing strong financial support, and all that entails.
LESLIE: How much financial support? ROLAND: Enough to keep IMSF solvent for years.
I can have funds transferred in less than a minute, and contracts drawn up in an hour.
LESLIE: And in return, our trusted organization provides you with political cover.
ROLAND: A small price to pay to keep the doors open.
JAVIER: I'm not seeing anything.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Warning, O2 SAT at 90%.
JAVIER: What's going on? What does that mean? AMELIE: Her oxygen saturation is dropping.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Warning, incubator temperature is at 35.
9 degrees.
AMELIE: It's not working.
None of it is working.
JAVIER: Mae, self-repair.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Self-repair not possible on custom device.
Warning, O2 SAT is at 89%.
AMELIE: It can't get below 85.
- JAVIER: Or what? - AMELIE: Or she can't breathe.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Warning, O2 SAT is at 88%.
Warning, incubator temperature at is 35.
5 degrees.
JAVIER: What can we do, Amelie? Amelie! AMELIE: I have to extubate her.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Warning, O2 SAT is at 87%.
JAVIER: She can't breathe on her own.
AMELIE: She has to.
Otherwise she won't be able to breathe at all with this tube in her airway.
JAVIER: Are you sure? AMELIE: Yes.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Warning, O2 SAT is at 86%.
Warning, incubator temperature is at 35.
3 degrees.
AMELIE: Oh, my God.
Please, please, please.
Please, breathe.
VOICE (OVER COMPUTER): Warning, O2 SAT is at REPORTER (OVER TV): Two unmanned Voyager spacecraft like this are now on their way toward the planets Jupiter and Saturn.
The program is designed to yield valuable new information about the origins of the solar system.
One of the ways it will do this is with pictures.
REPORTER (OVER TV): We have lift-off of the first of two Voyager spacecraft to extend man's senses further into the solar system than ever before.
STEPHEN: When Carl Sagan convinced the head of NASA to turn around the Voyager spacecraft and take a picture of Earth, we saw Earth in a perspective that we have never seen before.
CARL: Here is the, the Earth in a sunbeam, and you can see it.
It is in fact less than a pixel in size, and this is where we live.
On a blue dot.
There is no evidence suggesting life anywhere else.
For me, that underscores the rarity and preciousness of the earth and the life upon it.
ADAM: We see our smallness when we look out at the universe.
Our individual lives, and even our civilization, is not that significant on a cosmic scale.
CARL: On that blue dot, that's where everyone you know and everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, lived out their lives.
ADAM: What comes out of our cosmic insignificance is compassion, a deep, profound, and cosmic compassion for all living things.
But we're having a hard time.
We're engaged in this battle for how we act as a planetary species.
CARL: Astronomy has always been said to be a humbling experience.
I think this perspective underscores our responsibility to preserve and cherish that blue dot, the only home we have.
ADAM: One of the beautiful things that Carl Sagan showed us is that with the cosmic view was our recognition that we're all in it together.
BILL: Space exploration brings out the best in us.
It's where we solve problems that have never been solved before.
STEPHEN: One of the things that humans have learned is that when lives are in danger and everything is in danger of falling apart, if they come together and support each other, they can get through a crisis.
HANA: Let's get everyone set up with water and food right away.
JEN: Thank you for opening your doors to us.
SHEP: I know you people probably don't want anything to do with Lukrum right now, but HANA: We're all in this together.
We'll get you set up with everything you need.
Thank you.
ROBERT: Commander.
HANA: You don't need to call me that.
ROBERT: Well, seems appropriate since you're everyone's commander now.
HANA: I don't know how we're going to fit everybody.
We're not equipped to house this many people, but.
ROBERT: Lucky for us, I'm pretty good at building.
We'll make it work.
HANA: We'll make it work.
JOHAR: Commander, we need to get out of these and into Medical Bay.
It's about the baby.
AMELIE: She's breathing on her own.
She's stronger than we thought.
- HANA: Gabriella.
- AMELIE: That's Hana.
LESLIE: Commander Seung, Hana, there's something you need to know.
I've signed a contract with Lukrum Industries, but I want you to understand why.
HANA: You okay? MARTA: Obviously a lot to clean up and repair before I can continue my work, but At least we got this.
What could be a second genesis.
Findings that could change our understanding of the universe.
Of us.
And we wouldn't have it if it weren't for the man I'd spent a year hating with a passion.
HANA: I know.
MARTA: Let me know when the next of kin has been notified.
I'd like to send a message to his daughter.
She should know her father was proud of her interest in science.
HANA: Of course.
ROLAND: In our goal of colonizing, it is not without risk.
But to paraphrase a friend, bad things happen on Earth, too.
And while the quake caused significant damage, know that we could neither have predicted it, nor prevented it from happening.
Also know that we will persevere.
And more than that, we will rebuild.
LESLIE: Let me begin by apologizing on behalf of IMSF.
We've been misleading you.
For years, we've been overly protective of our brave astronauts, and less than transparent about the hardships that they have faced on this mission.
Before I became secretary general, I was Dr.
I was a scientist.
My husband and I had the honor of traveling to Mars for Phase 2, and I remember distinctly thinking how far away Earth felt, how distant IMSF seemed, and that no one knew what it was like to be where we were.
So when we're standing here talking about what happened on Mars, and the future of Mars, we do so without understanding.
Ultimately it's neither me, nor Roland, nor anybody on Earth you should be hearing from.
ROLAND: You're off script.
HANA: Greetings, I'm Hana Seung, commander of the IMSF Mars mission.
It's been 10 years since we set foot here on Mars.
10 challenging, but rewarding years.
And in that time, we've learned a few things.
The importance of trust, unity, and collaboration.
Lukrum Industries has been a valuable partner in our efforts to terraform the planet.
But their aggressive methods, including the use of underground explosives that triggered a quake must be looked at, monitored and kept in check.
This is essential not only for those of us who are here.
- ROLAND: What the hell are you doing? - LESLIE: My job.
LESLIE: Protecting Mars, and saving IMSF.
HANA: We at IMSF are pioneers, here to explore the planet, not to exploit it.
We've done plenty of that on Earth, and we've paid a price for it, with devastating consequences.
We're not here to repeat history; we're here to understand, and to grow, and to respect, both the planet, and one another.
That's the only way we can ever hope to successfully live here as a people.
And we do carry that hope.
With the newest member of our colony.
ROLAND: You're not getting away with this.
LESLIE: I already have.
HANA: That is now more true than ever.
Earth, meet Gabriella Durand Delgado.
Gabriella, meet Earth.
Life here is possible.
LESLIE: Thanks for the wire transfer, by the way.
HANA: We're here to stay.
LELAND: Going to space changes you fundamentally.
I was shaking and rocking and moving, and my eyes are just seeing these green and blue lights from the displays.
Two and a half minutes, it gets quieter as the solid rocket boosters jettison.
Six and a half minutes later, we're now in space.
And I was just blown away.
You see this thin blue line, our atmosphere, and it's like, wow, that's what keeps us alive? - That's amazing, isn't it? - It is beautiful.
LELAND: When you see the bigger picture, it makes you really be cognizant of what we're doing to our environment.
You see these places are getting decimated by climate change.
And you can see the urban sprawl.
The Amazon forest burning.
These systems of hurricanes.
MAN: There's Leland, Randy.
LELAND: I got this awareness of my planet.
MAN: Hey.
LELAND: The more people that can go to space and see what it looks like would cherish that beauty, but also see how we're all connected in such a masterful way.
SINI: I don't think Greenpeace alone can solve the problems of Planet Earth, but in order to save this planet, we have to really trust each other.
JASON: One of the things that I hope is for scientists and government agencies to work hand in hand with industry as opposed to each group working in some sort of adversarial relationship.
JOHN: We make a lot of mistakes as people, as societies, but I think that we have the tools to right those mistakes.
When things get dark, they get better.
ELON: What most motivates me about Mars is that I think it's an opportunity to do a reset on a new planet, to rethink things and maybe have an improved system.
LUCIANNE: We have the capability to look at our human history, to look at how our past choices have impacted our environment, so that we can make Mars not just a second replication of human society, but to make it something better than we've created here on this planet.
ELLEN: Let's do it together.
Let's not make it a conflict situation.
We can develop in a sustainable way here on Earth, and as we move outward into the solar system.
ADAM: I absolutely expect there will be conflict on Mars, but I think everyone will be so conscious of the challenge, it might really inspire our better natures.
AMELIE: Gabriella, Gabriella.
Come here.
HANA: Go to the left.
A little more.
Zoom in right there.
Right there.
Our first cloud.
