Wow, that was lame. With the exception of #1, all of these are conjecture. Not real errors, just generizations about the Reality and Space and stereotyped Sci-Fi, coming from the authors head. Weak. Really, really Weak.

One star for the retard that wrote this.

Kubrick wasn't the man...well, not for 2001 anyway. You can thank Arthur C Clarke for the scientific accuracy in that collaboration. The standard line of "the book was better" can only be multiplied in this case.

Check out the guy's CV at the Arthur C Clarke Foundation's website.

Firefly did the whole "no sound in space" thing really well. And no sound in space =|= complete silence. You can have background music, you know.

Now let us complain about the fact that no action movie or any movie based in a fictional world for that matter ignores the laws of physics, science, and in most cases reality. It's called fiction for a reason if you want realisim watch documentrys or simply observe people.

there are so many other real mistakes in movies. If a spaceship has gravity, then they are making us assume, there is some new technology keeping them on the floor. It's very disappointing that they failed to note things like, the way cpr magically revives anyone(whether or not they're in cardiac arrest), or the way defibrillators magically do the same thing. Also, how about the myth that your blood will boil in space--blood vessles are strong enough to keep the pressure up inside so blood won't boil. There are even scenes in which a tiny hole in a spacecraft starts sucking everything out. Sea level pressure--and such a pressure in space is usually unnecessary to breath--is only 14.7psi. When a fluid flows through an orifice, the fastest speed at which is can transmit pressure is Mach1. So, air only travels through the hole that fast. That limits the flow rate through the hole(it's called a choked flow if you wanna read up). Any of these would have been a better topic to choose from.

They forget the greatest flaw of all in their beloved 2001...and that is,it was supposed to happen in 2001,and yet,here we are,still on earth,beating the piss out of our fellow man like a bunch of idiots with space exploration of little concern as it costs money to make it work

It's science fiction. I don't care if they fudge realism for the sake of the movie, that's kind of the point. These are the people who don't have an imagination or sense of humor. Dumb article.

The best part of that post was the nerd debate at the end. Don't get those sci fi geeks started!

They missed the obvious:

Lasers make no sound, and cannot be seen.

Seriously, that aggravates me every time...

That was a good thought-provoking list.. I enjoyed it. But it's science -fiction-, so there really can't be any errors, can there?

I think that the point of merging science with fiction is to make the fiction seem more real. That is why I like science-fiction, because it makes the story so believable. So I can totally understand why one would want to get rid of all the explosions and sound effects in space-movies. On the other hand I dont think 100% realism dont suit all sci fi-movies.
