I noticed that some movie makers are confusing microgravity with vacuum. I have a scene in mind, where someone floats into an airlock from outer space, closes the door behind him and the air begins to hiss into the little room. Then somehow the gravity kicks in and the floating person falls immedieately to the hard ground. Last time I’ve seen this was yesterday in the movie “Sunshine”. Or perhaps they had some technology to turn gravity on and off?
I haven’t seen the movie yet (it’s not due out in North America until the end of the year, last I heard), but it would be interesting to see if that was deliberate or not. Let’s give the movie-makers the benefit of the doubt and that the air lock can turn off its artificial gravity in the airlocks for EVAs. 🙂
