Armageddon

Today I was reading a thread on Reddit where users were pointing out what incorrect detail in a movie really bothered them. I found out that NASA uses the movie Armageddon in their training program. They don’t use the movie because of its awesome accuracy; it’s actually used for the opposite reason. 

The movie is used to show the trainees what not to do. In an exercise, the hopefuls have to point out all of the inaccuracies in the film. It turns out that that there is nearly 170 impossibilities over the course of the movie, averaging out to more than one per minute.

The author then goes on to criticize Michael Bay for the remainder of the article. I personally like the film and I can’t claim that I’m watching it to learn about the proper way to blow up an asteroid, so the inaccuracies don’t bother me too much.
