Trivia

Hydrazine has been used for decades in spacecraft as thruster propellant and as fuel for auxiliary power units. It is corrosive and extremely toxic. See more »

Goofs

During launch, the crew capsule separation occurs immediately after the launch vehicle reaches supersonic speeds. In reality, a ULA Atlas 5 rocket would reach Mach 1 far earlier in the launch profile (roughly a minute). The payload separation would have then occurred much later, in addition to other inaccuracies in the launch cadence.

This information is based on the profile of Juno's mission to Jupiter launched on an Atlas 5 in 2011. The footage in Europa Report is taken from this launch and the mission profiles would have been similar. See more »

A movie for true sci-fi fans
30 June 2013 | by juffin777See all my reviews

If you are a true sci-fi fan, you should see this movie. It doesn't have a lot of visual effects, star cast or action. What it does have is realism, scientific character and honest human emotions. It tells a simple story of astronauts doing their job, willing to make sacrifices for science and not being dramatic about it. The plot and characters are believable, and realistic style of the film creates suspense much better than any cheap effects and tricks. This movie is made in a true spirit of sci-fi genre. Perhaps, it doesn't deserve a 10, but it should definitely have a higher score than something like "Prometheus". After all let us not forget about 'science' in 'science fiction'.
