Goofs

In the emergency scenario the spacesuit connectors for cooling water and oxygen from the PLSS (Portable Life Support System) are reversed and the BSLSS (Buddy Secondary Life Support System) hose is incorrectly connected between the suit oxygen inlets. The BSLSS shared only the cooling water from a single working PLSS, not oxygen. This allowed the astronaut with the failed PLSS to extend his emergency oxygen supply. See more »

Can't wait!
30 June 2005 | by george-490See all my reviews

Can't wait for this to be released -- the latest 3D Space IMAX movie. We heard a sneak preview at the National Space Society conference in Washington DC, and it was awesome. Film is produced by Tom Hanks, and helmed by Mark Cowen. The idea is simple: recreate the authentic experience of the Apollo moon astronauts using the 3D IMAX format. They are pulling out all the stops to give the actual sensation of what the Apollo astronauts saw, heard and felt in their voyage to and on the Moon. Authentic imagery, digitally manipulated for the high res Imax experience. Plus sets which recreate the lunar environment down to the little boulders in the pictures. They've got lots of astronaut participation, which is promising. This is really where IMAX is unrivaled -- transporting audiences to an inaccessible place. Highly appropriate for it to come out now, when NASA is planning to start its new Moon program. Until lunar tourism is a reality, this sounds like our best bet. You are go for liftoff!
