A roomful of scientists is assembling circuit boards in preparation for future launch--a special spherical chip of map tacks is made to pin commemorative ideas to a bulletin board.
While I sit atop the shuttle, elsewhere a ferry is locked in treacherous ice just a few feet from shore. A man falls through but the rescuer makes no attempt to save him -- he's more concerned with wooing the roomful of women, some of whom decide to stay aboard. In the shuttle cabin everything is turning blue due to "cryogenic trickle." The launch tower is an 11-story hotel where a bellhop sneaks down a rickety back staircase because he wants to keep the change.
