Goofs

Though the physics of the slingshot maneuver would be correct, the action would not put them back to Jupiter. In the time that they had traveled back to Earth, Jupiter had moved in orbit, so a slingshot would put them back to the orbit of the planet, but not to the planet itself. Apollo used the slingshot maneuver during Apollo 13 because the earth was in the center of the moon's orbit, so roughly "stationary" in the eyes of the moon's orbit. See more »

Quotes

Sanchez: Been thinking a lot about time... and how it gets used and why. Why one person lives a lifetime and another only gets a few years.

It's a Sci-Drama....be patient.
23 December 2020 | by gideonzackSee all my reviews

It's slow yes, but overall well acted and the last half is worth watching. They could create a great series about all the side stories. This almost feels like a pilot. I want more of the pre-story and the after-story! Overall enjoyable film for me. 6/10.
