That... doesn't look like a moon... if you know what I mean.

All I know it's from the 70s and the artist is Angus McKie.

Strictly speaking, space archery would be a pretty interesting thing. In an airless environment, there is no drag, so it becomes a purely ballistic exercise.

and a simple hole in a suit becomes a serious problem... unlike hollywood, a very high probability of fatal.

What year was that done? It's actually the closest to a realistic depiction I've seen so far.

Between 1919 and 2010. http://www.mccallstudios.com/the-artist/

But dude was apparently in up to his neck with NASA and paid more attention than most to realism.

A real shame that everyone and everything on board would have been irradiated several times over that close to the event horizon...

That said, it was a great film. I loved it too. :up:

The only thing that is going to stop a loose neutron is mass. Sorry, but you are going to need some pretty ridiculous lead walls OR (and this is actually a consideration for real exploration in space) water. However, if you go the water route, you are going to essentially be in a submarine - because you need roughly 40 ft or more between you and the source.

I disagree; it's an interesting thought exercise.

They have a ship capable of traveling to a black hole. I'm sure they figured out everything they needed to do that.

Also, Disney has a Magic Kingdom. Magic.

True, but in the real world we have to deal with, well, reality. That said, if you had followed the thought exercise, you would have been amazed to discover just how close we are to actually being able to do something like that.

If we had the will to do the engineering, we are almost down to material science problems.
Reversing the polarity of the shield generator and re-routing it usually does the trick.

I loved that movie as a kid, and I was surprised to hear recently that it was considered a disaster for Disney. All I know is I had all the toys.
