    I was wrong; reading your responses, i feel like you misinterpreted everything i said. It's like your answers were written to someone else's post. Out of energy, sorry.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    So that's how you get out of being wrong? By admitting that you were wrong about something not even related?

    Sunshine plot holes -
    "As the crew attempts to rotate the shield to repair it, there is an argument that they would lose com towers 3 and 4, which they say would need on the way home. However, many shots including the simulation of payload delivery reveal that the Icarus' small shield which is supposed to protect Icarus after the payload is detached, just isn't wide enough to protect those towers at all, so they would've lost them anyway. It is even questionable, whether this shield would be capable of protecting the Icarus itself after detaching the payload with the large shield and at that close distance from the sun."

    Is that really a plot hole?

    Well yes, but you could also view the tailpipe comment as 'realistic', in the sense that there are a lot of people *in our reality* who blow smoke and state blatant untruths. I mean, you could walk down the street or anywhere and hear non-scientists profess knowledge on a certain topic that they know nothing about. Or even more educated people stating things that aren't true, whether willfully, b.s.ing, to try to make themselves look more knowledgable to those around them than they actually are, or they're ignorant and don't know they're slipping up on a fact.

    Also, what I edited into my first response re. the Stupidity factor in general --even the 'stupidity' element could be viewed as realistic, depending on the psychology of those involved; i.e. heightened stress, panic mode, utterly foreign and potentially life-threatening environment, causing people to lose their more rational side and therefore be... stupid. lol.

    But yeah, I'm not sure why in this movie they went the route of having a higher # of non-scientist scientists than your typical sci-fi film.

    Re. the genetics talk -- I am not overly bothered by distant aliens not following genetics/evolution as we know it here, because I'm of the opinion there could be very different processes elsewhere, the building blocks/metabolism elsewhere not needing to be how it is here, thus why should I expect or require the aliens/biological processes in sci-fi movies to follow that of Earth?
