Continuity mistake: When the survivors of the sunken ship are floating in the life raft, Geig makes a comment while observing the cloudless night sky: "look, there goes Shepherd..."(something to that effect, in reference to the recent launch of Allen Shepherd in the first Mercury manned-space flight). In actuality, Shepherd's flight was a day launch and a sub-orbital flight lasting only few minutes. He never achieved orbit and therefore would not be visible travelling in the night sky.
