Space Camp

Deliberate mistake: The filmmakers wanted a scene where Andi is startled by Max as he spacewalks behind her at Daedalus. Given that the only way to communicate in spacesuits is through radio, and the two suits would presumably been on the same channel with the shuttle, Andi would have known Max was coming. Further, even if they were on different channels, why wouldn't anyone tell Andi that Max was coming?

Continuity mistake: When Andie goes out to get the oxygen from Daedelus she cannot reach it because her helmet won't let her through the structure of the space station, so Max offers to go and help her because he is smaller, but the only suit they can find is an adult one. After a lot of struggling they manage to make the suit smaller and he fits through the structure to get the oxygen but his helmet is the same size as Andie's so although his suit was smaller, he should not have been able to fit. Also notice how long her belt is when Max emerges from the ship. She would have to have about 30 ft of belt to wrap that much around him.

Question: If Lea Thompson wasn't strapped in during a launch, wouldn't she have suffered more than a couple of bruises from her body being wrapped around a steel column and being under 3G+ during the launch scene?

Answer: Not necessarily. The 3 G's pretty well kept her pinned, so she wasn't bouncing around. If someone can fall 18,000 ft out of an airplane with only a sprained leg (one of several examples) then yes it's theoretically possible. If the guy in this story could withstand 42 g's strapped in, the yes Katherine could've survived 3 g's.
