Other mistake: A.J. gets dirt on his face although he is covered by an astronaut's suit.

Suggested correction: Maybe the dirt got Into the suit in the course of their adventures (he takes his helmet on and off several times), then onto his face?


Other mistake: The two ships that the astronauts and drillers are supposed to be new, military vessels that were top secret - and just happen to bear a resemblance to the actual NASA shuttle orbiter. But, when they are launched, on the wider shots it appears that the footage is just stock shots of the space shuttle taking off. It is only in the closer shots that they actually bother to show the fictional craft. (Additional Information: During the X-71 launch sequence, they used real Space Shuttle footage, and used computer graphics to stitch the image of the X-71 onto a shuttle rocket stack. However, at least once during the sequence, you could see they forgot or didn't bother to change the Shuttle to the X-71. They just left the video as it was, and you could clearly see that it was a real Shuttle, and not the X-71. )

Suggested correction: I don't think this is correct. Much of the X-71 resembles the same as the normal shuttles and they even modified the launch sequence to be impossible to have used stock footage. You can see added gear on them. And there is no added stock footage of two shuttles next to each other, since NASA has never done that as pointed out by an above "mistake" concerning whether someone could send up two ships at once, which you could. Only when they really blow up does a ship like that become dangerous, and the shuttle is already designed to withstand the heat of its own thrusters.

Other mistake: In the scene where the asteroids are hitting New York, there is an exterior shot of one of them hitting the South end of Grand Central Terminal. Another shot goes by and the film cuts to the main area inside the station, which is close to where the first asteroid hit. There is not one hint of damage, or any discernible reaction from the people inside from the first impact.

Harry Stamper: You got any more bullets in that gun, Sharp?



During the scene where it shows people all over the world, just before the shuttles take off, it is daylight everywhere. It would actually be dark or near dark in parts of the world.



While being strapped in, Rockhound tells Harry they're sitting on "something with 270,000 moving parts all built by the lowest bidder." This is a paraphrase of a quote by Alan Shepherd.
