What was supposed to be a somewhat light hearted action/adventure movie turned into a marketing nightmare. SpaceCamp was scheduled to be released in early 1986 but on 28 January the real-life shuttle Challenger exploded 74 seconds after liftoff, claiming the lives of seven American astronauts. After the Challenger disaster, the release was pushed back months. When it was finally sent to theaters, it grossed less than $10 million in the U.S. Eerily, the malfunction simulated in the film involved the solid rocket booster and was similar to the actual cause of the Challenger accident.

The only message in Morse code that Atlantis sends prior to contact with Mission Control is "SOS". But when Jinx notices that Atlantis is sending Morse code, he starts speaking the letters out loud, which spell, "Come in Control".

Not only is the message no longer "SOS", but there is no way that much information could be conveyed that quickly with Morse code sent at the speed Atlantis is seen using. See more
