The torch was sent up the ISS in what was meant to be a gesture of international goodwill and cooperation, but upon entering the cabin astronaut Anthony Dwert tripped and the torch flew out of his hand.
In what seemed like slow-motion, but was later to be clarified as no gravity, the torch flew towards a fuel tank that had been carelessly left out by someone. It set alight in a blast that ricocheted through the space station.
The ricochet was enough to knock the ISS out of orbit, and it fell through the atmosphere, gathering speed and end-of-the-worldocity. It crashed unto a small Belgian town near Brussels and killed at least 8000 people.
“This has taught us one thing” said the head of the Olympic Committee, “Never, ever, dare to hope.”
