Bad Science in Science Fiction Movies

io9 targets bad science in science fiction movies, from the instance of sound in space and fire is space to faster than light travel.

Two comments about the chart: It's debatable if Apollo 13 counts as a science fiction movie (See blogpost on the difference between hard and soft science fiction here). Second, 'dodging faster-than-light weapons e.g. lasers' is incorrect: Lasers beams do not move faster than light, as they are light.


  1. Thank you so much for this. What space movies are great?

  2. I recommend "Europa Report" and "Moon" in must watch section of anybody who loves watching science fiction movies. I have seen most of the movies given in this list. Thank you for sharing it.
