The crew on the Antares watches horrified as Zoe walks away from the Lander, drawn across the blazing face of Venus by the sound of a baby's cry. Donner tells her that she is hallucinating, but Zoe persists towards the point of no return. As Paula continues to narrate the recorded video of the fake Venus walk, Arnel and Ajay report that Zoe's suit is starting to deteriorate and that the Venus Lander is overheating.

Season 1, Episode 12
Only hours from Zoe’s perilous landing, Paula, with Wassenfelder on camera, broadcasts to Earth, explaining that, with a temperature at four hundred and sixty degrees centigrade, air pressure ninety three times that of Earth, and a carbon dioxide atmosphere, human time on the planet is limited to twenty minutes. Like bridesmaids in attendance, Nadia and Jen help Zoe into the bulky EVA suit. Donner is garbed into his pressure suit by Ted and makes his final preparations to pilot the Lander to Venus.
