This tee features Frank Poole (one of the astronauts) as he slowly drifted into his death into space which was caused by HAL making him believe that the AE-35 unit (device used to maintain communications with ground personnel on Earth) which was installed on the antenna outside the spacecraft was malfunctioning and he had to go out and replace it. When he alighted the spacecraft, HAL rammed an EVA pod towards him which caused both him and the pod to lose control and eventually lead to his death.
