the real way johnson got off the pillar of autumn
f you finished halo 1 on legendary, you will see Johnson hugging the elite, then see both of the get engulfed in the explosion of the pillar of autumn and died. What really happened was just when the pillar of autumn exploded, Johnson hugged the elite, but what he really did was he hid behind the elite The elite was exposed to 1,000,000 degrees of super heated fire, 50 times hotter than the sun. The elite burned into a crisp in a matter of seconds, while Johnson survived by hiding behind the disintegrated elite body. With halo gone, Johnson was floating in space. Just as the elite got burned by the explosion, Johnson took the elites helmet, and enabled him to breathe in outer space. How he got back to earth was he saw a body of a grunt in space drifting nearby so he grabbed the gas mask of the grunt to propel Johnson towards earth at 300,000 km per second, as fast as speed of light.
