Europa Report is a 2013 science fiction film directed by Sebastián Cordero, recounting the story of the first crewed mission to Europa, one of Jupiter's moons. Despite a disastrous technical failure that loses all communications with Earth mission control and a series of dangerous crises, the crew continues their mission to Europa and encounters a baffling mystery.
- As the ship passed the moon, it had already gone farther than any human being had ever gone before. Think about that. Across all of human history, that moment was the farthest anyone had ever gone. But they still had millions upon millions of miles to go. Our craft was heading for a moon of Jupiter known as Europa.
- We now know that our universe is stranger, far more alive, than we had ever imagined. The crew of Europa One changed the fundamental context in which all of humanity understands itself. I don't know what greater measure of success they could have achieved.
- Compared to the breadth of knowledge yet to be known... what does your life actually matter?
- Life on Earth began in the ocean, so in some ways this mission will be like taking a trip back in time.
- Hey, everybody. Space is great, um... I miss you guys. We're a long way away now. I can't even see, uh, I can't even see Earth anymore.
- It's kind of ironic really. So little space in here, and so much space out there.
- Andrei Blok: What would you do if you get out there and find nothing?
- William Xu: Well, even if we found nothing it's an effective discovery.
