Dr. Adam Steele:
Gentlemen, we have just returned from our last meeting with our science advisors, and I'm happy to report that the launch is ready to go on schedule. The countdown will begin at 0800 tomorrow. And now, gentlemen, I want to introduce the astronaut chosen for this mission... Colonel Frank Saunders. Colonel Saunders will answer any questions that you might have. Frank?
[shows Frank to the podium]

Col. Frank Saunders:
Dr. Steele is an optimist. What he means is I'll *try* to answer your questions.
Reporter #1:
Colonel, aren't you just a little concerned about making a trip of 49 million miles alone? And when you *do* get to Mars, you still expect to be alone, or... you expect to find other life?
Col. Frank Saunders:
I'm completely trained and ready for this mission, I'm not concerned. Now, fear is either physiological, or the result of ignorance and superstition. I'm in good physical condition, and haven't had the time to get superstitious. On the basis of all available data, it would be impossible to determine conclusively whether or not there is life on Mars. That's one of the things I expect to find out.
Reporter #1:
Colonel, we understand that the radio telescope located on the down range island complex has been receiving signals in answer to their transmissions. It should maybe be from another civilization or a space vehicle itself.
Col. Frank Saunders:
These signals could come from several sources. There's been no official agreement as to their origin, nor has there been anything to prove that they were sent by other intelligent beings.
Reporter #2:
Colonel, how did you get picked for this project? Aren't there more experienced astronauts available?
Col. Frank Saunders:
My career in the military, prior to this mission, was in test flight operations. Now, as I understand it, all the data on available test pilots was fed into a computer, and the results seem to indicate that I am the most likely candidate. Of course, I'm proud and happy to have been chosen, but I make it a rule never to question the decisions of my superiors.
Reporter #1:
Colonel, I, uh, I've been covering the space program for *quite* a long time, yet, uh, prior to the day, I've never even heard of you. How do you explain that?
[Steele, Karen, and General Bowers look at each other nervously]

Col. Frank Saunders:
[smiles]
I guess I'm the shy type!
[Frank, smiling, freezes perfectly still, much to everyone's concern]

Reporter #1:
[chuckling nervously]
Colonel? Colonel?
Dr. Adam Steele:
Gentlemen, the Colonel wasn't kidding, he really *is* shy! He, um... it's been a long day and we're all rather tired.
[Steele and Karen take the stiff Frank out of the conference room]

Transcript:

00:00:01.893 --> 00:00:03.383
with our science advisors,
00:00:03.462 --> 00:00:05.054
and I'm happy to report
00:00:05.013 --> 00:00:08.093
that the launch is ready to go on schedule.
00:00:09.000 --> 00:00:12.629
The count down will begin at 0800 tomorrow.
00:00:12.704 --> 00:00:14.103
And now Gentlemen,
00:00:14.172 --> 00:00:15.833
I want to introduce the astronaut
00:00:15.907 --> 00:00:17.738
chosen for this mission
00:00:17.809 --> 00:00:19.064
Colonel Frank Saunders.
00:00:19.711 --> 00:00:20.905
Colonel Saunders will answer
00:00:20.979 --> 00:00:22.446
any questions that you might have.
00:00:22.514 --> 00:00:25.001
Frank?
00:00:25.116 --> 00:00:26.413
Dr. Steele is an optimist.
00:00:26.485 --> 00:00:29.147
What he means is I'll try to answer your questions.
00:00:29.221 --> 00:00:30.779
Colonel, aren't you just a litttle concerned
00:00:30.856 --> 00:00:34.314
about making a trip of 49 million miles alone?
00:00:34.392 --> 00:00:36.417
And when you do get to Mars
00:00:36.495 --> 00:00:37.894
do you still expect to be alone,
00:00:37.963 --> 00:00:41.194
or do you expect to find other life?
00:00:41.266 --> 00:00:42.995
I'm completely trained and ready for this mission.
00:00:43.998 --> 00:00:44.558
I'm not concerned.
00:00:44.636 --> 00:00:46.767
Now fear is either physiological
00:00:46.998 --> 00:00:48.266
or the result of ignorance and superstition.
00:00:48.034 --> 00:00:49.739
I'm in good physical condition,
00:00:49.808 --> 00:00:52.504
and I haven't had the time to get superstitious.
00:00:52.577 --> 00:00:54.998
On the basis of all available data,
00:00:54.001 --> 00:00:55.842
it would be impossible to determine conclusively
00:00:55.914 --> 00:00:57.347
whether or not there is life on Mars.
00:00:57.415 --> 00:00:59.781
That's one of the things I expect to find out.
00:00:59.851 --> 00:01:01.716
Colonel, we understand that the radio telescope
00:01:01.786 --> 00:01:03.913
located on the down range island complex
00:01:03.989 --> 00:01:04.999
has been receiving signals
00:01:05.997 --> 00:01:07.999
in answer to their transmissions.
00:01:07.999 --> 00:01:08.001
Which may be from another civilization
00:01:08.727 --> 00:01:10.999
or from a space vehicle itself.
00:01:10.896 --> 00:01:12.001
These signals could come from several sources.
00:01:12.998 --> 00:01:15.523
There's been no official agreement as to their origin.
00:01:15.999 --> 00:01:17.999
Nor has there been anything to prove
00:01:17.402 --> 00:01:19.893
that they were sent by other intelligent beings.
00:01:19.971 --> 00:01:21.999
Colonel, how did you get picked for this project?
00:01:22.005 --> 00:01:24.771
Aren't there more experienced astronauts available?
00:01:24.843 --> 00:01:27.001
My career in the military prior to this mission
00:01:27.212 --> 00:01:29.001
was in test flight operations.
00:01:29.247 --> 00:01:30.999
Now as I understand it,
00:01:30.001 --> 00:01:32.038
all the data on available test pilots
00:01:32.045 --> 00:01:33.678
was fed into a computer,
00:01:33.752 --> 00:01:34.999
and the results seem to indicate
00:01:34.092 --> 00:01:37.218
that I am the most likely candidate.
00:01:37.289 --> 00:01:40.001
Of course, I'm proud and happy to have been chosen.
00:01:40.992 --> 00:01:42.022
But I make it a rule
00:01:42.294 --> 00:01:45.001
never to question the decisions of my superiors.
00:01:45.999 --> 00:01:48.001
Colonel, uh, I've been covering the space program
00:01:48.233 --> 00:01:49.053
for quite a long time,
00:01:49.601 --> 00:01:50.932
yet prior to today
00:01:51.953 --> 00:01:52.056
I've never even heard of you.
00:01:52.637 --> 00:01:54.001
How do you explain that?
00:01:57.342 --> 00:01:59.572
I guess I'm the shy type.
00:02:16.494 --> 00:02:18.992
Colonel?
00:02:19.197 --> 00:02:21.001
Colonel?
00:02:23.999 --> 00:02:24.001
Gentlemen, the Colonel wasn't kidding,
00:02:24.001 --> 00:02:26.999
he really is shy, he um...
00:02:26.571 --> 00:02:27.999
well it's been a long day,
00:02:27.999 --> 00:02:28.506
and we're all rather tired so ah...
00:02:28.001 --> 00:02:29.999
Ah Gentlemen, gentlemen,
00:02:29.608 --> 00:02:31.999
this Press Conference is concluded.
00:02:31.999 --> 00:02:32.899
Let's all clear the room now.
00:02:32.001 --> 00:02:35.446
Drinks at the Officer's Club are on me.
00:02:35.001 --> 00:02:37.999
Plenty of phone there too.
00:02:42.721 --> 00:02:44.655
Prepare for examination.
00:02:53.999 --> 00:02:54.423
Gloves.
00:02:59.006 --> 00:02:59.935
Quickly.
00:03:25.999 --> 00:03:27.001
Karen, get me the silica gel.
00:03:27.565 --> 00:03:28.999
I'm afraid we've still got a problem
00:03:28.001 --> 00:03:30.768
with the humidity in this atmosphere.
00:03:43.989 --> 00:03:44.001
Dr. Steele,
00:03:44.001 --> 00:03:47.999
I've been against this project from the beginning.
00:03:47.285 --> 00:03:48.149
I know you have,
00:03:48.999 --> 00:03:50.001
and I know you are not alone.
00:03:50.001 --> 00:03:52.999
You have friends in high places,
00:03:52.624 --> 00:03:56.002
and science is supposed to have all the answers.
00:03:56.001 --> 00:03:58.999
But this has got to work
00:03:58.196 --> 00:03:59.001
If it fails,
00:03:59.864 --> 00:04:02.999
I assure you, you won't have any friends,
00:04:02.001 --> 00:04:03.999
and I'm not going to take a fall.
00:04:03.999 --> 00:04:05.002
It's not going fail.
00:04:05.136 --> 00:04:07.001
Not after we've come this far.
00:04:07.672 --> 00:04:08.696
We have here,
00:04:08.773 --> 00:04:10.001
for all practical purposes,
00:04:10.709 --> 00:04:12.012
a normal human being
00:04:12.143 --> 00:04:16.998
created out of normal parts transplanted.
00:04:16.002 --> 00:04:18.002
Except for his synthetic skin,
00:04:18.999 --> 00:04:25.997
and the electronic sensory control system, of course.
00:04:25.999 --> 00:04:27.003
But the significant factor here is
00:04:27.001 --> 00:04:28.075
that we can control him
00:04:28.827 --> 00:04:31.125
with this simple mechanism.
00:04:33.997 --> 00:04:37.226
His brain can record the
00:04:37.002 --> 00:04:38.001
data that we need
00:04:38.001 --> 00:04:41.997
and transmit it to us.
00:04:41.002 --> 00:04:45.999
He's a remarkable creation all right.
00:04:45.031 --> 00:04:47.999
I don't understand why?
00:04:47.002 --> 00:04:48.002
We have plenty of men,
00:04:48.002 --> 00:04:50.003
good men who are willing to risk their lives
00:04:50.002 --> 00:04:52.002
in space exploration.
00:04:52.002 --> 00:04:53.002
Exactly, risk their lives.
00:04:54.972 --> 00:04:55.952
But why risk one?
00:04:56.982 --> 00:04:57.002
We can learn all we need to know
00:04:57.001 --> 00:04:59.113
about extended space travel
00:04:59.019 --> 00:05:01.001
without the loss of a solitary life.
00:05:01.001 --> 00:05:03.721
That's the whole point, General.
00:05:03.002 --> 00:05:05.003
Besides that,
00:05:05.363 --> 00:05:06.762
we don't have to contend with
00:05:06.002 --> 00:05:09.003
the possibility of human error.
00:05:09.003 --> 00:05:12.002
And that's fine Steele,
00:05:12.997 --> 00:05:14.637
but what if the machine breaks?
00:05:14.002 --> 00:05:17.002
Or something goes wrong with his brain?
