Just watched this. Entertaining, well done sci-fi film involving a doomed expedition to Europa. Excellent CGI, good acting. I don't like flashbacks much and this is an example. Overall, very good science. One error. Just landed on Europa; reporting absolute zero as the temperature. Nope. Europa is close enough to Sun to be well above that temperature, even if Europa wasn't being heated by tidal friction from Jupiter. Tidal friction is likely the cause of Europa having a liquid ocean, a big part of the plot.
