Factual error: When Control realizes that the kids are communicating with Morse code, they get someone to translate. He reads out "Request alternate landing White" in the space of 9 seconds. The lights and sounds from the CXT switch are not going nearly fast enough for him to have gotten all that. (01:32:20)LorgSkyegon
Factual error: During launch the Shuttle cabin is rather noisy and rattling due to vibrations from the solid rocket boosters and the main engines. After Andie and the Space Camp kids have jettisoned the solid boosters and the external tank, the cabin is still played as noisy and shaky. However, at that point the main engines are shut down and the orbiter is in freefall: there should be no noisy vibration.
Other mistake: Max takes Jinx and puts him in his locker at Space Camp. Wouldn't NASA notice if a $27 million robot went missing?
Trivia: Space Camp was filmed at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama at the real U.S. Space Camp. The parts in the orbiter were filmed in the Atlantis orbiter used at the camp and the parts in the payload bay were filmed in the payload bay of the Enterprise orbiter that is used by Advanced Space Academy.
