Gravity movie is even more fun when we spot, and explain, the scientific inaccuracies portrayed in the movie

// October 9th, 2013 // No Comments » // Moves, TV, and Music News

I loved the movie Gravity! The photography was beautiful and the 3D imagery phenomenal to experience. George Clooney was great (while he lasted) and Sandra bullock a pleasant wonder to watch (as always). Still, I couldn’t help but wonder how accurate the portrayal of the space environment really was.
