The Transcript For This Page
Robyn and Sajjan are now on the outside of the airlock, in vacuum. They look around at the people milling about. They should be kicking up a fair amount of dust, but it doesn't linger in a vacuum the way it does in atmosphere, it falls straight back to the ground..
Caption (Robyn): 'Outside, it was the same chaotic jumble of people.
Caption: 'We found an unused channel on our comm units and tried to plan our next move.'
Robyn picks up a clip-board from where it's sitting on a barrel.
Caption (Robyn): 'I found a clipboard to carry around.
Caption: 'Throughout space and time, someone carrying a clipboard is assumed to be authorized to be wherever they are.'
Sajjan walks alongside Robyn, carrying a shovel. They both try to look like they're busy doing something.
Caption: 'Sajjan found and carried a shovel for the same reason.
Caption: 'Nobody gave us a second look.'
Sajjan and Robyn continue walking along.
Sajjan: OK, boss, what now?
Robyn: We look for an opportunity, that's what.
Robyn points to a ground vehicle, about the size of a short school-bus except that it has three axles, and wheels somewhat like those of NASA's lunar rover, sitting on a rise about 200 meters away.
Robyn: Look over there.
Robyn: I think that's a private emergency vehicle sitting all by its lonesome.
Robyn and Sajjan moon-walk across the moonscape towards the vehicle. They make a meandering path around various small craters.
Robyn: Let's see if we can borrow a cup of sugar.
Approaching the vehicle, we can now read the words 'Spanish Lookout Search and Rescue' painted on the side.
Robyn: Sajjan, I think we've found a friend.
