Dr. Ellie Arroway, after years of searching, finds conclusive radio proof of extraterrestrial intelligence, sending plans for a mysterious machine.
When Eleanor is pitching for funds at the boardroom, she is wearing the trademark turtleneck and beige suit for which Carl Sagan is famous.
CQ, this is W9GFO. CQ, this is W9GFO here. Come back?
After Ellie notices the compass is floating smoothly, she unstraps from the chair inside the "IPV" and floats as well. Soon, the chair shakes violently loose from its anchor point, then slams into one side of the pod. When Mission Control resumes video contact with her, she's lying on the floor of the IPV, her cheek bloodied, but it's hard to tell if the chair is still mounted or not. The condition/position of the chair would confirm or refute her story of having traveled, rather than dropping straight through the spinning rings.
