A pair of shuttle astronauts leave their spacecraft to repair a satellite. There's an explosion. NASA loses contact for two minutes, but the both are rescued and safely returned to Earth. Eventually it becomes evident that neither of the astronauts is quite the same.Written by
Toward the end of the movie when Spencer follows Jillian to their apartment, she locks the door and engages the deadbolt. Moments later Spencer is seen trying to get in, screaming for her and banging on the door, until he finally breaks the door open.

Spencer Armacost, played by Johnny Depp, and a fellow astronaut are lost outside their space shuttle for two minutes. NASA is alarmed and bring the men back.
