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

Element 120 has properties that can be predicted because of its position in the periodic table. Among those properties is paramagnetism, which means that it inly becomes magnetic with the application of an external electromagnetic field. Furthermore, since the force of magnetism decreases as the square of the distance from the magnet, the intensity of the magnetic field that would be able to attract meteors to the San Francisco area from space would be so strong that they could not have escaped detection before this time.

Nothing to rave about, but Syfy have done much worse
19 May 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Of all the films I have seen of Syfy and on the Syfy channel, Meteor Storm is not one of the best, though I have yet to see a Syfy movie that I would deem good. But it is not as bad as Titanic II, Mega Piranha, Shark Attack and that Moby Dick movie they did. To be honest, Meteor Storm is nothing to rave about, but unlike the movies I have cited the acting while again not award-worthy was tolerable, particularly from Michael Trucco. The film is not visually stunning by any regard as the editing is rather slip-shod and the effects are largely inconsistent, but there are much cheaper productions out there. Despite these, there are a lot of things in this movie that I don't like about Syfy in general. A major problem is the plot, if I had to sum it up in one word, it would be nonsensical. The ideas put forward are somewhat imaginative and intriguing, but explained and executed ridiculously. The script is clichéd, illogical and just plain bad really, the characters are cardboard and I didn't really connect to them, the pace is uneven with a dull middle section and the less said about a vast majority of the direction the better. All in all, there have been worse, but this is not really something to savour on repeat viewings and such. 2/10 Bethany Cox
