The Icarus Base survivors assess their supplies and try to determine their chances of survival. The odds decrease sharply when they discover that air leaks and contaminated carbon dioxide scrubbers mean that they have less than an hour of air left. With time running out, one of them will have to make the ultimate sacrifice to buy the others a chance to live.
