Did You Know?


The artificial gravity depicted in the movie can be obtained with present day technology; the first proof of concept, producing only 0.00015 g, was done in 1966 during the Gemini 11 flight. The proposed satellite Tempo3 is meant to further test centripetal artificial gravity generation. The project Mars Direct plans to spin the spaceship using a discarded upper stage as a counterweight, exactly as shown in the movie. See more »


The stars were always processing in the wrong direction. If artificial gravity is via centripetal force, as a person stands up, the center of rotation is above him. If he looks perpendicular to the velocity vector (i.e. "out the window) the stars will be preceding from right to left, not up to down. See more »


Marina Barnett: Guys, this is not a call for a solution. The entirety of Hyperion is down there trying to figure this out. I'm only telling you this because I need you to be mentally prepared for what's gonna happen.

Silly movie
25 April 2021 | by What-a-PunkSee all my reviews

I just wonder when they gonna stop making movies about space missions with a crew full of unprofessional, psychologically unbalanced, stereotipical, uncapable, unresponsible and silly people. What a joke!

In real life we are actually sending our most trained, most disciplined and capable people to space, not some teenage students that can't cope with their childish psycological problems.

This is not a sci-fi movie, this is some bottom tier soap opera with space mission on the background.

This movie has a classic start, flat, primitive plot and an unsettling ending, that makes no sense, but since the whole plot is unrealistic and unreasonable, the ending actually goes in sync with it.

Wouldn't recommend it.
