The Observation Deck door

This is one of the trickier starting puzzles. You'll need the view from the deck and the whiteboard for this (and maybe the map if geography isn't your biggest strength). Of the list on the whiteboard, only 4 countries are visible from your current view of Earth. Those four numbers in order make your code.

Crew Quarters - Earths Locker

Earth's locker is the odd one out, the only one with a directional lock on and the first you need to crack. The clue here is in the emoji on the locker door. The baby tells you to look at the babies on the family notice board. At the top of the board, there's four baby pictures in a row, each with an arrow next to them. This is how you unlock the padlock. A space and a comma is needed between each command and it should all be in lowercase.

Take the first letter of each planet that the poem features and put them in the oder that they appear in the poem to get the 6 letter password. Caps lock on for this one, it's all uppercase.

The Command Deck door code

The watches are a clue here, not just a red herring for the Control Room door clock! Take a look at the crew pictures on the wall in the Crew Quarters. You'll see one of the astronauts wearing two watches. This person is your answer. That person is named after a planet, find that planet on the poster and you'll find a 4-digit code that'll get you through the door. You can just drop the decimal point here.

The two ingredients of the smoothie are the two items you need. Find them on the stock list, the stock levels of those two items will provide your 6-digit code. No spaces here and they go in the order that they're written in the diary.

The Command Deck Safe

Now you've got the gravity back on, the key to this one is all about the weights and the scales. The main clue here is the photo from Jupiters locker used with the crew list from the Command Deck computer. As there's two scales, you're going to need two weights.

The picture is of two crew members on the shoulders of others. For this, you need the weights of the two crew members that are on the shoulders. You then need to work out how much they would weigh if they were on the planet that the person carrying them is named for. So it's how much Alec Porter would weigh on Jupiter and how much Jim Williams would weigh on Mercury. Each weight should be rounded to the nearest whole number. One weight is 3 digits of the 5-digit code, the other weight is 2 digits of the 5-digit code.

The Control Room Door - Clock

This one is tough. to set the time, you'll need the crew's D.O.B's, the zodiac sign list, the crew pictures and the Winter Hexagon astronomy poster. The Winter Hexagon has a note on it about looking like a clock. This indicates that the Winter Hexagon is your clock face... now you have to put the clock hands on it.

The hour hand and minute hand need to be identified. Look at the crew photo's, one says hours and one says minutes. Now you need to work out which crew member represents the minute hand and hour hand. Check which crew member they're all looking at in the photo's, that's your answer. So Mars is your minute hand and Uranus is your hour hand.

Now to work out the direction they would point as clock hands on the Winter Hexagon. For this you need their D.O.B's and the Zodiac sign list. Mars is a Taurus. Taurus features on the Winter Hexagon so the minute hand points at Taurus on the Winter Hexagon (roughly 2 on a clock)



Uranus is a Gemini so the hour hand points at Gemini on the Winter Hexagon (roughly 10 on a clock. This will give you the time to set. The format is XX:XX - it's a 12 hour clock format and don't forget the colon between hours and minutes.

Evacuation Shuttle - Co-Ordinates

This is the final piece of the puzzle. For this, you'll need to fill in the blanks (or X's) on the co-ordinates on the shuttle console. Once you enter the address on the telescope, watch the video carefully. As it zooms in on the landing site, you'll see co-ordinates in the bottom of the screen. The numbers change slightly as the camera moves but the first digits stay constant. Those are then missing digits on the shuttle co-ordinates. Enter both of the 2-digit numbers in the answer box, separated by a space. This is the final puzzle, you will have now successfully escaped!
