  1. Numbers in China look just like they do in North America. Went to three cities in China earlier in the year.

  3. yeah man< i love your shit but numbers are numbers. They were standardized around the world quite a while back. Anyway, i love your work and i don't blame you for making one mistake. Keep up the good work and I'm still waiting for walking dead part three!

  4. Not to mention the Clooney sacrifice scene. In real life he would have have been experiencing 0 G after the tug from the ropes, but in the movie he was pulled away from ISS by some magical force not yet known to mankind. It was a beautiful movie, but I just can't get it our of my head. I can't help but think this was intentional, because none with basic knowledge of physics could miss this.

    The Clooney sacrifice makes sense if you assume the ISS is rotating slowly.

  6. Man, you kinda missed the whole point of the movie.


    It was all a metaphor for the creation of human life. It starts in space with the big bang and then the stardust eventually ends up on Earth and evolves into humanity.


    The director has also spoken about how his intention was not to make a technical masterpiece. They started off with a story they thought would be simple enough to make and then later learned how truly difficult it would be to convey it on screen.

  7. I don't think the second debris wave was the same as the first. As I gathered it there was one initial wave that was already quite fast. It hit some satellites and debris which created a second wave that grew bigger through chain reaction and gained momentum. The first wave hit Bullock-Clooney's station and later the second wave hit Bullock's.


    I really enjoyed the movie overall. A great experience in cinemas and for me probably movie of the year 2013.

  8. They use the latin (arabic?) number system a lot, and all the locals can understand them, but Chinese does have characters for numbers that are just as simple to write as ours, and I'll assume the Chinese satellite would have Chinese numbers, considering how patriotic the government is. I lived there as a kid for 4 years not too long ago. still just a guess though

  9. But wasn't Clooney attached to it long enough to have been rotating with it?
