  • 27:22 Artur Clark, if I remember correctly, wrote a story in which there were constant tensions between the blocks, but bases on the Moon lived in peace. It turned out that Soviet and American bases at first did shoot at each other, but since the speed of the projectiles was bigger that the first cosmic speed for the Moon they entered into circular orbit around the Moon (no resistance of any kind) and now the crews of the bases have to constantly dodge the bullits hey fired before. P.S. First cosmic speed for Moon should be around 1,6 km/s or 1 mile per second.

  • Yeah Gravity took a lot of creative liberties, but still compared to other space movies, at least they got a baseline of science right and then just exaggerated certain things to move the story along. It's not at all how astronauts behave and talk on missions, but that wouldn't make for a very entertaining movie.

    Patti MegganPatti Meggan2 dager siden
  • Well he may be a hellava Test Pilot but he’s not a competitive shooter. In order for a bullet to be fired the gun’s striker mechanism hits the primer and the primer ignites the gun powder which burns which builds up enough gas pressure to eventually eject the bullet out of the case. The operative point here is that the gun power has to burn and I don’t know how that can happen without oxygen ... gravity has nothing to do with firing a gun - that part is certainly true ...

    The Ultimate Steel ShooterThe Ultimate Steel Shooter2 dager siden
  • This comment will get lost in the shuffle, but I just had to say that it's pretty obvious that Gravity is not scientifically correct and isn't suppose to be. It's also obvious that Mr. Hadfield and many in the comments didn't see the film. The whole space theme is really just a backdrop to show the growth and endurance of the lead character, Dr. Stone. She's literally depicted as starting as a novice who is "saved" by a more experienced astronaut and grows into a badass survivor who ultimately gets back to Earth completely on her own. George Clooney's character is only in maybe 20-30 minutes of the movie. People going off over one scene of a 90-minute movie shown out of context should really watch the film in its entirety.

  • He's also what people would call a great 'science communicator.' There are people who can do scientific things far beyond our understanding, and when they explain it, the explanations are also beyond our understanding. That's why people like Hadfield are so important - they communicate the concepts that are harder for the average (even scientifically-minded) people to understand in a way that they easily can understand.

    • That goes to show how much he truly understands these concepts. He's able to break it down into a much more digestible manner.
