Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia In the film, the astronauts are seen using what appears to be the early concept of the Manned Maneuvering Unit - during the real-life Skylab missions, the Astronaut Maneuvering Unit (the AMU) was tested inside the space station and never tested in the vacuum of space. The first use of the MMU was during STS-41-B (the fourth flight of the Challenger) on February 7, 1984. See more »
Goofs The astronauts are repeatedly shown releasing free-floating hand-held objects such as video cameras during their spacewalks. However, no loose untethered objects are ever allowed on spacewalks as the potential for them to float away and become hazardous objects is too great. See more »

Quotes Flight Surgeon: [regarding the earliest possible time for rescue] You know of course that by 22:31:06, the crew will be dead. There's not enough oxygen left for three men to live that long.
Charles Keith: Well what about... two men?
Flight Surgeon: We don't figure that way, we plot total pressure against total use.
Charles Keith: Is there sufficient oxygen for two men? For one?
Flight Surgeon: [long pause] Two might just make it.
