* Based on the way Venus was handled, no. Alpha decided to push them and see if they'd risk staying in the storm. Thanks to Gos, the didn't which is why Alpha's still on Mars and people are dead.

* The fractal objects also seem to want specific people to pick them up (and the trip to get the object is a test specific to that person), and will give people health problems in order to prevent them from retrieving a fractal object. On Mars, Sharon was having terrifying aural hallucinations and the other astronaut left behind developed angina. However, both mission control and the astronauts ignored this, therefore the mission was a failure. On the Antares mission, Beta gives Ajay and Rollie heart murmurs to pull them off the mission, and then later causes Paula's thumb wound to reopen to prevent her from steering the Venus lander. This time, the astronauts and mission control heed the warnings, and no one dies [[spoiler: although Zoe gets severely burned]]

* Fridge Brilliance: The method (whatever it is) is derived from the communication between Alpha and Beta as spotted by the radio astronomers on the show. The coversation there obviously lacked a time lag. So while the method is not explained, how it was discovered is.

* The creators specifically mentioned that they considered the crew sending messages to Earth and back, but decided it would mess up the pace they wanted. Although being able to send a signal from a spaceship to a ''cell phone'' is a little farfetched.

!!Mars
So, Alpha doesn't like someone for an arbitrary reason and decides to kill them?

* This Troper always figured on some sort of quantum entanglement-based communication system. Then again, he usually tries to defend show creators. YourMileageMayVary.
