Dr. Stone and the crew are under attack by flying debris. The part of the ship that Dr. Stone is mounted on is hit, and she flies around in space uncontrollably at a constant speed. She follows the instructions of her crew member and detaches to prevent herself from flying away too far away from the Explorer.
Cooper and Brand are stuck in the gravity of a black hole. They use thrusters and the force exerted from detaching other parts of the ship in order to escape. Unfortunately one of the two individuals must be detached in order to make an escape.
