Capricorn One

Question: Okay, so the three astronauts are on the run but only James Brolin makes good his escape. What happened to the other two? They're shown as being caught, but what happened after? Anybody know?

Chosen answer: It's never stated in the film, however, as the astronauts have been declared officially dead and therefore cannot ever be allowed to contact anybody, they were most likely executed as soon as they were captured.

Answer: How were they able to fire their flares, then?

They both had just enough time to fire their flares when they realised they were about to be captured and that there was no chance of escaping.
