The worst and Greatest space films, Based to Nasa

The worst and Greatest space films, Based to Nasa

Among other space movies that got black-listed by the sci-fi fans at NASA were the 2000 thrillers Mission to Mars and Red Planet, mainly because "the science was so bad in them".

Recently the staff of the BBC spoke with several astronauts from NASA to ask about the best and worst movies about space. When asked about which movies did NASA's women scientists thing were the best and then, which science-themed movies were the worst, here is an epic compilation of the movies listed during the interview.

A few of these were inspired by pictures and shows to review science and technology. It also received the title of Best movie of 2013 by Time magazine.

The second top choice of the women at NASA was Apollo 13.

"Everything that could go wrong went terribly, terribly wrong and that's not exactly the feeling we want everybody to have about this industry", Wills pointed out. However, of all the things that ticked off the ladies, it was how Stone looked when she gets out of her space suit. While viewers likely don't go into a Planet of the Apes movie looking for ideal accuracy, the scientific missteps definitely rubbed NASA scientists the wrong way. "In one of them they got the names of DNA base pairs incorrect and in the other, they actually called some giant grasshopper-like creature a 'tiny worm, '". The plot of the movie is about NASA which sends a team to stop an asteroid which is en route to collide with the Earth. Although the movie did far more box office collection than Deep Impact which was termed as a good scientifically accurate movie, Armageddon later became the highest grossing movie of 1998.

Although the series ended more than two decades ago, the seven-season TV phenomenon is still greatly appreciated by the tight bunch at NASA, who shared fond memories about watching Gene Rodenberry's sci-fi cult series when it first came out. Misty Snopkowski, launch site integrator at NASA, said that "I remember rushing home from school and watching that all the time".

The most popular and generally more accurate movies according to the staff of NASA, were "Martians", "Hidden shapes" and "Apollo 13", which demonstrate some of the realities of space travel real astronauts. While their focus is primarily on expanding our reaches into the rest of our galaxy, NASA's female scientists also have some pretty strong opinions on the best and worst space movies around. The movie is an adaptation of the book "Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage" which was based on real-life Apollo 13, America's third mission to the Moon in which, Fred Haise, Jack Swigert, and Jim Lovell were the astronauts. The main reason for this movie's inclusion is for the relatability numerous scientists feel to the movie, with McIntyre noting that "My favorite space film is "The Martian" because that's where we're going and it really does show just how hard it is". The movie seems to have struck a rather personal chord with scientists and engineers at the space agency.
