Trivia

The theories Peter recites are:
  • "A body in motion tends to stay in motion." - Newton's First Law of Motion


  • "Protons have 1832 times the mass of electrons." - 30 years later, more precise measurements say 1836


  • "All light is bent or refracted as it goes from one medium to another, save in a direction perpendicular to the interface between the two mediums."


  • "...new species may result from the selective action of external conditions upon the variations from their specific type which individuals present...." - T. H. Huxley, to Darwin on Origin of Species


  • "Gravity varies as to the inverse square of the distance."


  • "The velocity of light is equal to the wavelength times the frequency of vibration." - This is actually true of anything that propagates as a wave as it's the definition of the phase velocity of the wave.


  • "The geometrical properties of the space-time continuum are determined by the masses present in space and time."




Also Peter's naming of the different sciences was done in alphabetical order: algebra, anatomy, astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, geometry, mathematics, meteorology, mineralogy, oceanography, paleontology, physics, psychology, sociology, trigonometry and zoology.

The actors who provided voices for Antiquity and Solarius the Blue Wizard are uncredited. Paul Frees voiced the omnipotent Antiquity, but there is apparently no record anywhere of who voiced Solarius.
