Max (Matt Damon) blows up Kruger (Sharlto Copley) with a grenade. Spider tries to use the codes in Max's brain to override Elysium's system, but he can't do so without killing Max. Max tells him to do it anyway and Spider reprograms the mainframe to accept all of Earth's population as citizens of Elysium. Elysium sends medical ships down to the planet to heal the wounded. Max dies.
Factual error: When the shuttles are approaching the station, their engines are firing from the rear, meaning they are in constant acceleration toward the station. When arriving at a station, you would need to slow down as you approach, meaning the engines should be firing forward (or the shuttle should reverse direction). This happens in all scenes where shuttles are approaching the station.
