   The world blacks out for less than 2 minutes. The blackout last 137 seconds.
   During the flashforward people saw 21 years into the future. They only saw 6 months in the future.
   Simcoe is enganged to Michiko who also works at CERN. He is not engaged, but sees the future where he has a relationship with Benford's wife.
