In the science fiction disaster film Moonfall, a team of specialists tries to save the Earth from astronomical devastation. The film is notable for its very large production budget. In 2011, astronauts Brian Harper and Jocinda "Jo" Fowler are on a Space Shuttle mission to repair a satellite when Harper witnesses a mysterious black swarm attack the orbiter, killing a crew-mate and incapacitating Jo. After an 18-month long investigation, nobody believes his explanation, human error is blamed, and Harper is fired. Ten years later, conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman, who believes the Moon is an artificial megastructure, steals time on a research telescope and discovers that the Moon's orbit is veering closer to Earth. He attempts to share his findings with Harper, who dismisses him, leading K.C. to go public on social media. NASA independently discovers the anomaly and mounts a mission on an SLS Block 2 to investigate the abnormality. The same swarm that had attacked Harper's mission reappears, killing all three crew members after they drop a probe into a kilometers-deep artificial hole in the Moon.
