After Bond learns that the volcano has a false bottom, concealing SPECTRE's underground operation, he sends Kissy to fetch Tanaka, while he climbs down into the rocket base. There, he learns that SPECTRE intends to hijack an American spacecraft in two hours. He finds and releases the astronauts captured in the two previous hijackings. They knock out a few guards, don their uniforms, then help Bond steal a spacesuit. When the SPECTRE astronauts are summoned, Bond goes with them, but Blofeld notices him taking his air conditioning unit inside the capsule and has him stopped. As Bond watches, SPECTRE's rocket is launched. Shortly thereafter, Tanaka, Kissy, and dozens of ninjas descend into the crater. Blofeld's in-crater guns open fire on the ninjas. Using an exploding cigarettes, Bond shoots one of Blofeld's men, creating a diversion just long enough to open the crater, allowing the ninjas to invade by sliding down ropes. Blofeld attempts to close the crater, but a ninja places a bomb on the crater door and blows a permanent hole in it. More ninjas come streaming in. Blofeld seals off his control room, assuring Bond that nothing can stop the interception of the space capsule. When he finally realizes that he has been bested again, Blofeld first shoots Mr Osato (Teru Shimada) for failing him, then escapes on his personal monorail. With just six minutes left until interception, Bond fights his way back to the control room in order to push the abort button. Hans (Ronald Rich), Blofeld's bodyguard, tries to stop him, but Bond manages to feed Hans to the pirhanas and blow up the SPECTRE rocket with just five seconds to spare. In his escape, Blofeld also sets off charges, and the entire rocket base starts to explode, sending everyone running and swimming to get out. Air force planes drop life rafts, and Kissy and Bond climb into one. Thinking that they're all alone, they start kissing. In the final scene, their life raft is suddenly lifted out of the water when M (Bernard Lee)'s submarine surfaces under them.
