Sunshine influenced by 2001 A space Odyssey & Alien 1979
A team of international astronauts are sent on a dangerous mission
to reignite the dying Sun with a nuclear fission bomb in 2057.
In 2057, the sun is dying and the Earth is freezing. A crew of eight pilot a colossal nuclear bomb aboard the spaceship Icarus II,
with the intent to jump start the sun, and return to Earth. As they slingshot past Mercury, Icarus II discovers the distress beacon
of Icarus I, the first ship to attempt their mission, which disappeared seven years earlier. Reasoning that two bombs have a better
chance of success than one, physicist Capa recommends Captain Kaneda change course and commandeer Icarus I. Mace,
the ship's engineer, opposes the deviation as risky. Navigator Trey calculates a trajectory to intercept Icarus I, but forgets to
realign the shields that protect the ship from the sun, causing damage to four shield panels.
