The astronauts William Xu, Rosa Dasque, Dr. Daniel Luxembourg, Dr. Katya Petrovna, Andrei Blok and James Corrigan travel to the moon of Jupiter known as Europa in the spacecraft Europa One. Their assignment is to investigate the existence of life in Europa, based on the discovery of water in the moon. When they experience communication breakdown, Andrei and Corrigan need to go outside the spacecraft to repair it. However, Corrigan accidentally contaminates his suit with hydrazine and he is left behind in space. When they land, they miss their target and they decide to drill the ice to research. Then Katya collects samples proving the existence of one alien organism from Europa but she has a tragic accident. The survivors decide to return to Earth with their discovery but there is a problem with the engines and they get stranded in Europa. Will they be able to fix the engines and return to Earth with their findings? Written by

Hydrazine has been used for decades in spacecraft as thruster propellant and as fuel for auxiliary power units. It is corrosive and extremely toxic. See more »
At the end of the movie the computer screen is titled "Katye spacewalk", but the screen is displaying Adobe Flash source code for colorpicker controls (import fl.events.colorpickerevent) in the three other windows where you'd expect the spaceship logfiles. See more »
Dr. Daniel Luxembourg:
Hey, everybody. Space is great, um... I miss you guys. We're a long way away now. I can't even see, uh, I can't even see Earth anymore.

If you are a true sci-fi fan, you should see this movie. It doesn't have a lot of visual effects, star cast or action. What it does have is realism, scientific character and honest human emotions. It tells a simple story of astronauts doing their job, willing to make sacrifices for science and not being dramatic about it. The plot and characters are believable, and realistic style of the film creates suspense much better than any cheap effects and tricks. This movie is made in a true spirit of sci-fi genre. Perhaps, it doesn't deserve a 10, but it should definitely have a higher score than something like "Prometheus". After all let us not forget about 'science' in 'science fiction'.
