Six Ways Movies Are Wrong About Space

Space is still the final frontier for us earthbound human beings, and our fascination with what awaits humanity in the largely unexplored cosmos is still going strong. 

Movies have brought this cosmic interest back time and time again, most recently with the film Gravity, proving that people still can’t get enough of movies set in space.

Chris Hadfield is an astronaut who knows a thing or two about outer space, and he’s sick and tired of watching movies that seem to get space wrong every time.

Chris says space will kill you in mundane ways, like when Luca Parmitano came close to drowning in space when his water supply leaked into his helmet, but going to the bathroom in space is awesome, which is something they never show in the movies, for obvious reasons.

He shared these factoids and more with Cracked in 6 Ways Movies Get Space Wrong, and (spoiler alert!) Hollywood movies are typically all wrong about space!
