Tuesday Movie – Everything wrong with Gravity…

An interesting video about a film which is generally hard science. I do like the line about the title, (“should be ‘Angular Momentum”) and the rather large physics fail about the movements of bodies in low gravity which unfortunately renders a dramatic moment laughable.

I’ve chosen this video because as well as giving a good grounding in space, it shows that even the best people who can afford the best consultants fall down in places. This is also why most filmmakers prefer the rayguns and science-as-magic approach: until we can shoot movies in space, it is simpler and cheaper.

You can get the DVD from Amazon.co.uk. I haven’t read the novelisation so I don’t know if the errors are better explained in there.
