Trivia

Attempts have been made to produce element 120, designated Unbinilium, but have not been successful. Expectations are that it could be the start of an "island of stability", i.e. have a nucleus with at least one relatively stable isotope. However, the most stable isotope of any element with an atomic number higher than 100 has a half-life of only 101 days. As the element's number increases, the length of the half-life decreases. Element 118 has a half-life of .89 microseconds; unless the theoretical island of stability exists and element 120 is in it, it could not exist long enough to be observed, much less sit at the bottom of San Francisco Bay for thousands or millions of years (current projections suggest a half-life of from 1 to 20 microseconds). Expectations of its chemical properties suggest that it would be highly reactive, oxidizing violently in air and explosively under water. See more »

Goofs

Contrary to what may be assumed, fallen meteorites are not hot; the heat caused by atmospheric friction abrades the outer layers, stripping away the heated portions, leaving the remaining portion as cold as they were while still in space. A free-falling meteorite spends less than thirty seconds in the atmosphere, which is not enough to heat it through. Touching a freshly-fallen meteor is more likely to cause frostbite than a burn.

Respectable cast, gag-all plot
7 February 2010 | by (Wilkesboro NC) – See all my reviews

I don't need to repeat everything other reviewers noted, but maybe a few:

1. Every disaster flick cliché ever imagined was included. 2. Soldiers, even airmen, don't salute civilians -- except those in direct line of command like the SecDef and the CINC (President). 3. The science is pure hokum. Radio frequencies don't cause attraction or repulsion. If you're gonna blow up stuff in outer space, do it before it starts to heat up from atmospheric friction.

And then a couple no one has as yet mentioned:

4. Brigaders are about as high up the food chain as amoebas. A BG who gets the President on the phone is a joke. 5. I think that element 120 should have been named unbelievium. 6. Toward the end, Keri Matchett who plays the professor (the one who does qualitative analysis by looking through a microscope for Pete's sake) spends the last reel, rather than looking scared, concerned, or dispirited, with a sly smile on her face, as if she knows something none of the rest of us do. Well, she was wrong. A lot of us realized just how silly this whole thing was.
