During the re-entry sequence when the space shuttle enters a flat spin the exterior shots of the shuttle correctly show a combination of out-of-control roll and yaw. The internal cockpit shots show the earth rotating in the background through the side-windows which could only occur if the shuttle were pitching end over end. See more »

I love this film. It is a fun filled adventure about a group of teenagers who attend NASA Space Camp to learn how to be astronauts. These teenagers include Kathryn an ambitious girl (played by Lea Thompson who played Marty's mother in the Back to the Future films), Tish a blonde haired and semi-Valley Girl with a photographic memory (played by Kelly Preston who has been married to John Travolta since 1991), Kevin an arrogant teenager who gradually learns about responsibility, Rudy a bright African-American teenager and the intelligent 12 year old Max the youngest of the group. (who is played Joaquin Pheonix in his acting debut, back then he was credited as Leaf Phoenix). The teacher of this group is Andie Bergstrom (played by Kate Capshaw best known for playing Willie Scott in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and has been married to Stephen Spielberg since 1991).
These enthusiastic space students have a lot to learn at Space Camp. At one point they have trouble simply getting along with each other. But their biggest challenge is when they are accidentally blasted off into space on board the Space Shuttle Atlantis. If they are to return to Earth they must work together as a team and work like real astronauts. It becomes a matter of life and death as if they don't succeed they'll never return to Earth.
Although the film is fictional, Space Camp does include scenarios that real astronauts have to deal with when they are blasted off into space. So Space Camp is a great film to watch if you wish to learn about what you need to learn to become an astronaut.
Overall, Space Camp is a very enjoyable movie and I recommend it to anyone.
