Corrected entry: A typical countdown to the launch of a space shuttle is 48 hours, given the numerous factors and preparations involved. The idea that the NASA could have one ready and launched in the ultra-brief time that it takes them (once they spot Drax's station on radar), or have one on standby in case something like this happened, is ludicrous.
Corrected entry: Bond and Goodhead escape from Jaws in the cable car by throwing a chain over the cable and sliding down. A bad guy in the control booth starts up the gears and the cable car is in pursuit, almost chatching up to Bond and forcing him and Goodhead to drop from the cable. Not possible; the cable car is attached to the moving cable and can only move as fast as it is pulled. No matter how fast that is, Bond is moving with the speed of the cable AND sliding down on the chain. There is no way the cable car could have overtaken him.
Corrected entry: At the monastery in Brazil, Q tells Bond that the liquid Bond wanted analyzed is a highly toxic nerve gas. Bond asks to "see the formula", and when he sees a molecular diagram, he says, "It's the chemical formula of a plant." A plant is an organism, not a molecule, and is no more likely to have a chemical formula than is a human being. Perhaps Bond only meant that the diagram showed the substance was organic?
Corrected entry: In space the space shuttles make a jet sound even though there is no sound in space. Even the ones leaving from the space station make this noise and although there might be some rumbling to be heard inside the space station, there wouldn't be anything else since there is no atmosphere for sound to travel through.Tobin OReilly
