3 factual errors in Ke iho mai nei ko luna

(2 votes)

Ke iho mai nei ko luna - S9-E13

Factual error: Full aluminum scuba tanks are 1.5 pounds negatively buoyant when full of breathing air. Two of them would be 3 pounds negative. Yet McGarrett is using them to propel him down to 127 meters as if they were very heavy weights. (00:37:25)


Ke iho mai nei ko luna - S9-E13

Factual error: Three divers arrive at Neptune 1 submarine station where they test the atmosphere at 3% oxygen, 80% helium, 17% nitrogen. Breathing that much helium would make their voices quite high pitched. But their speech is normal. (00:14:30)


Ke iho mai nei ko luna - S9-E13

Factual error: A Neptune 1 dweller is suffering from a panic attack. One of the Five-O members asks if they have any oxygen. Using pure oxygen at that depth could be fatal. At 14 atmospheres of pressure - the pressure of Neptune 1 - pure oxygen would definitely cause oxygen toxicity. Oxygen toxicity is a concern for scuba divers who dive beyond recreational depth limits, use gas blends such as enriched air nitrox, or use 100% oxygen as a decompression gas. Pulmonary oxygen toxicity causes a burning sensation in the trachea, coughing, shortness of breath, and eventually lung failure. (00:14:45)


Lehu a Lehu - S6-E2

Visible crew/equipment: Danny is supposed to be looking for the suspect in the woods by himself and you can see another person on the top right hand side of the frame. The crew member looks as if he knows he is in the way and slowly backs away. (00:35:15)

Suggested correction: The name of McGarrett's father is not Jack, it's John.


Maybe not literally, but it's a common nickname for people named John. See John F. Kennedy and Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan.
