Lost in Space

Show generally

Factual error: The Robinsons exceeded the speed of light due to impurities in chemical rocket fuel. No chemical rocket fuel comes remotely close to the energy content needed to even approach the speed of light. That would require exotic fuels like antimatter. By Einstein's theory of Special Relativity it is impossible to exceed the speed of light with any form of rocket propulsion. Faster than light travel and time travel might be possible with the warped spacetime of Einstein's general theory of relativity and phenomena such as wormholes. For plausibility the opening scene should have been an encounter with a wormhole.

The Dream Monster - S2-E14

Other mistake: When Don and Dr Smith are stealing Sesmar's control unit, look closely at the base of the electronic arch - Raddion is hidden from sight but the careful eye will see his golden feet.
