Uchuu Kyoudai episode 11 discussion

Episode 10 discussion can be viewed here

A disclaimer followed by a short video of three astronauts dying in an accident. It was the same scenario as in Mutta's dream after finding Hibito's wills. Some of them are reluctant to sign, but by the end, everyone has signed their copy. Everyone should understand the dangers and should have come to terms with it before even considering to become an astronaut.


I wonder what would have happened if someone had decided to leave the exam at this point. The teams are broken up into groups so if the majority of one group had left, I'm sure they'd be rearranged again or just simply added to an existing group. The interviews must have been able to tell the resolve of each person and the fact they are all dedicated to becoming astronauts.

Everyone is split up into three teams based on the survey of how qualified each person is to become an astronaut. By the end of two weeks, each group must choose two out five who would make the best astronauts. Again, I'm not fond of the idea where they rate each other, but at least this time they will have two weeks to show off their skills.

Group A
Group C
Group B

I find it interesting they're going to be in a space station for two weeks. The test subject is realistic because of just how boring it can become by being by yourself for such a long time. Add a lack of sense and natural sunlight will only increase stress. Though I think the real problem is clearly the lack of technology and communication with the outside world. Let's hope they don't go insane.

Under pressure

Serika's empty stomach complex is extremely cute. She's always loved her food and seems like the type to eat a lot, but not actually gain any weight. An empty stomach will only growl for so long which is the same with feeling hungry and I agree it's pretty embarrassing to have your stomach growl, but it would be worse trying to hide it.

A love for food
I share your pain.

Cliff hangers are cruel, but it wasn't too difficult too guess after rewatching.

The first test is to figure out the current time. The obvious answer is to retrace your steps, but the moment they went to sleep, they lost track of time and it becomes a guess. I'll find it hilarious if Mutta is basing his answer on how hungry Serika is, but after rewatching the episode, I think the time is shown when Mutta leaves the bus. It's cheating on Mutta's part and was probably not meant to be seen. Knowing the time compared to figuring out the time as a group is an unfair advantage.

His memory really is useful

the 3rd exam was definitely worth the wait. It's really interesting and the final decision now depends on their groupmates.

until now, I'm still thinking as to how Mutta knew the time. I'm pretty sure that he's right although the other 4 had the same answer.

The other four are guessing the amount of time they slept. Mutta just goes straight for his answer suggesting he knows the answer.

Last pic, so that's the way Mutta guessing time

I didn't realize that 9_9"

It's my best guess and the only way I could see. Others will probably have noticed it too, but I'm just thankful it was near the start. Will see if I'm correct next episode.
