Mission Control

There's trouble on the Space Station:
Officials with NASA and the Russian space agency still don't know why the computers went down. They had never seen that type of failure on the space station before...
Hey! I've already seen this movie:
Interviewer: HAL, you have an enormous responsibility on this mission, in many ways perhaps the greatest responsibility of any single mission element. You're the brain, and central nervous system of the ship, and your responsibilities include watching over the men in hibernation. Does this ever cause you any lack of confidence?
HAL: Let me put it this way, Mr. Amor. The 9000 series is the most reliable computer ever made. No 9000 computer has ever made a mistake or distorted information. We are all, by any practical definition of the words, foolproof and incapable of error.
Stop The Occupation.
