    After surviving the entire space ordeal, Bullock is now stranded in the middle of a jungle and due to the massive satellite blackout, it is unlikely anyone knows she is there.

      When running low on oxygen, its a good idea to talk non-stop.

        "Mayday" is a horrible name for an astronaut.

          When you are in zero gravity and you are holding a rope connected to a space station (which means you are moving at the same velocity as the station) and you let go of the rope, you will accelerate away from the station. It's called the Clooney Effect.

            No no, I am not talking about the centrifugal force due to the orbiting around the Earth. This is due to the space object spinning around itself. Just like the Earth going around the Sun in addition to having a spin. We are not thrown into the space due to the centrifugal force of Earth's spin because gravity keeps everything in place. Space station's gravity is negligible compared to the effects of its spin. Hence Clooney is thrown outwards.
          • 30th October 2013 by Creamlord666
            Centrifugal force don't apply here. Inertia maintained when you travel with the same speed and direction as the object you were connencted to in frictionless space. The space station and the astronauts were beyond perigee in an orbit wich means they were not affected by rotary forces of the planet. The ellepsis orbit comes from earth gravity but since there is neglectable friction in space you could only drift away by creating your own momentum.
          • 30th October 2013 by Jay
            Yes, that can happen due to centrifugal force. If the object that you are tethered to is spinning, you'll be drawn outwards.
          • 14th October 2013 by bourbonphantom
            I'm no physicist but I think that could still happen due to radial velocity. If the space station is continuing to move in an arc around the planet, and you let go, then you're left moving in a straight line.

            Hehe, yeah - Clooney is so suave, he can even create friction in space.

          Don't get more supplies, oxygen, or another jet pack from the damaged shuttle.

          Landing back on Earth and walking on the surface is fine without decompressing.

            There are fully working, operational empty space-stations just floating around up there, with no-body in them. They even left all the lights and computers on just in case someone drops by.

              Everyone had already evacuated the station, Clooney I think even mentioned that.

                  Don't try to play in a movie with Sandra Bullock or George Clooney, you will get a small role in the movie, not even revealing your full face.

                    When you enter an unfamiliar space-station in an emergency situation, with death comings for you almost constantly, its a good idea to get out of your protective spacesuit as soon as possible.

                      Landing a shuttle in water will cause drowning at least 50% of the time.

                        If you see a small fire while aboard a space station, just let it burn.

                                Ryan wears no space diaper, since she still had on under wear when taking off her space suit.

                                  All of the different shuttles instruction manuals have English translations, Or Sandra Bullock is just so awesome that she can read both Chinese & Russian especially under pressure!

                                      Female astronauts are so emotionally unstable that they will turn down the life support system until rescued by a dead guy.

                                        You're kinda screwed if you're in a dangerous situation and George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are your co-stars.

                                                When your space shuttle gets shredded by debris travelling at 20,000 mph, there's a good chance that the crew might still be alive.
