Moving Mars Storyboards Section 2

When pressed on how that might have happened, Andy could only suggest it was a coalescence  of Good Friday, The Vernal Equinox, a full moon and extremely high tide all reaching their maximum at the exact same time they rode that wave. Andy says it was the most important moment in his life, well until he met Kathy.

On their way to the airlock to help deploy the solar shield Andy continues with his philosophy about humanity and how humans are just programed for  endless conflict and the technology it produces. Kathy asks for his best shot because she is tired of this subject.  Andy explains that the mission to move Mars will just create even more conflict as this endeavor divides humanity as most conflicts do.

Three astronauts deploy the solar shield. While working, mission control sends an urgent message regarding a massive solar flare  that has just been released by the sun.

After the shield is deployed Ken and Andy must position the ship for maximum protection from the killer solar flare.

Some where deep in the ship a remote control detonation device is activated.

Three of the four struts connecting the solar shield to the ship explode and release. The shield is hanging on by a thread.

Ken and Andy realizes there must be a sabateur  onboard. Andy hands Kathy a gun for protection before he and Ken head back outside.

Ken and Andy  immediately put their helmets back on and exit the ship and try to salvage the solar shield.

With death from the solar flare only moments away Andy and Ken rediscover the mental connection they first experienced on that 40 ft wave years ago. The connection is needed to save the ship and their lives.

Ken and Andy work on Kathy's wound. They call up help from the Medical AI, but it malfunctions and starts to open the emergency hatch directly to space.
