The reason for the design of a wheel type space station is to generate gravity as seen in the movie 2001 in that the crew lives and works on what would be the inside of the outer wall of the station. In this movie it appears that the crew is not on the outer walls because the interior shots show curved walls and flat floors. See more »

"What In The Tarnation Is Going On Out There?!"...
19 January 2019 | by azathothpwigginsSee all my reviews

In MUTINY IN OUTER SPACE, ice caves have been discovered on the lunar surface. A team is dispatched to gather samples from the caves. On the way back to Earth, the astronauts stop off at Space Station X-7.

Oh no!

It seems they've arrived at a bad time, since the station's commander is under stress from too much time in space, and could be cracking up! In addition to this, the new guests have brought something with them from the moon. Something alien and infinitely dangerous! Then, the obligatory meteor shower hits! All of this has a detrimental effect on the romances on board the station!

As the commander goes increasingly bananas, the alien organism spreads, turning the station into a floating hell!

Sort of THE GREEN SLIME meets THE CAINE MUTINY, this movie is a cheeeze-corn classic, complete with derring-do, fuzzy fungus monsters, and fashionable females in form-fitting uniforms!

Highly entertaining...
