Goofs

Throughout the show, it is shown that liquid methane is used as fuel. The critical temperature of methane is about -83 degrees Celsius, meaning that above that temperature methane is gas independent of the pressure it is stored. It would require a cryogenic tank to store liquid methane, which the ones shown in the Jupiter ships do not resemble anything like it. Judging by the characters clothing, the ambient temperature in the planet is in +20 to +30 degrees Celsius and, therefore, methane could never be stored in liquid form. See more »

Quotes

Hiroki Watanabe: We're scientists, Maureen. Just because we know something, we're not compelled to broadcast it. Information does not exist in isolation. There's consequences. Context.

Light an Dark
17 April 2018 | by GunnersMateSee all my reviews

Exceptionally frustrating episode. One one side we have the story of an attempted fuel-retrieval mission. Included in the actual mission is the lightness and silly comedy driven by the interplay of Don, Judy, and a number of ancillary characters. Plenty of reasons to smile even within the drama of the mission. Very enjoyable (and welcomed with all of the bad news the colonists have faced). On the other side we have the dark manipulations of Dr. Smith (no spoiler here, she has been lying and conniving since the first moment we saw her on screen). This episode it was too much and too dark, Why doesn't anyone see through her haze of lies? Why does everyone accept the ludicrous things she says without question? Why doesn't anyone implement the most basic practical safety considerations with respect to the Robot? Watching Smith manipulate the mentally unstable and small children is worse than unpleasant and drags the science fiction story into that dark. (It is the viewer who is being manipulated most of all here.) Perhaps it is supposed to make her (hopefully) eventual comeuppance more satisfying? The cost of the weak (and the intrepid viewer's time indulging her by watching) may be too high a price to pay - only time (and the remaining season episodes) will tell

...not to end on the dark side, the heart-crushing actions of Will are beautiful and mature beyond his young years. He is the light of the series...
