Storyline

The world watches in awe as the Roebling Clipper is launched into space. Using state-of-the-art scalar engines to fly around the Moon and back in just hours, the maiden voyage of the first-ever trans-lunar passenger ship is about to make history. Among those on board: First Lady Simone Mathany, space-exploration entrepreneur Steve Roebling, Dr. Denise Balaban, pilot Fiona Henslaw, and a very lucky lottery winner. But while en route, a massive solar flare sparks a cosmic-ray burst that accelerates Aurora's engine and blows the ship away from Earth's orbit. Now out of control, it's hurtling straight for the sun. At Mission Control, along with the desperate President Thomas Mathany, an increasingly anxious team of experts puts a plan into motion - an interception by a shuttle attached to the International Space Station. When that ends in disaster, the Aurora only picks up speed. Now being pulled toward the sun at three percent of the speed of light, it's only a matter of hours before it ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Actually the character said it would seven hours in total, I.e., to the moon and back. See more »

Goofs

When the craft slingshots around the moon, they will still be in freefall, and continue to experience zero G, not 9 G. The only times they will not be in freefall is when the craft is accelerating different from their bodies, i.e. when the engines are on, of if they crash. See more »

Worthy of ridicule
10 August 2013 | by adj-699-887746See all my reviews

I'm sorry--I'm sure the film and set crews enjoyed having yet another gig to keep them employed, but you have to ask yourself--why would anyone assemble such a decent selection of actors around a script with a plot so asinine it actually inspires contempt? The absurd premise behind the plot, coupled with a meandering, vacuous script makes one instantly think of the sheer waste of opportunity in engaging in such a project and then turning it into such a sad, disappointing mess.

The producers here need to stay away from any further dabbling in 'sci-fi', since they obviously aimed for a genre and it's devoted demographic that they know absolutely nothing about.

An absolute waste of talent, time and money, and a real pity...
