ARMAGEDDON! Saving Earth By Blowing Up Asteroids?
Howdy folks, I played “guest scientist” for Fact or Fictional with Veronica Belmont this week. We discussed just how unscientific the movie Armageddon was. In 151 minutes, they make at least 168 scientific mistakes. Here’s a few of them.
If we pointed out all of the mistakes, this video would have been about an hour long. But there’s so, so, so many more. Needless to say, this one’s total fiction. Anyway, enjoy my face, on your screen, talking about science!
With today’s fly-by by asteroid 2012 DA14 (which wasn’t really a cause for alarm), it’s a good time to remind everyone of the time that I sat down with Veronica to talk about how bad the asteroid science is in the movie Armageddon.
