A modern film could easily make a few scenes on the moon with today's modern technology.I'd have filmed moon shots on location - on the moon. Could even send Kubrick to make sure the shots were *good*, but if you're going to do it, do it as authentically as possible.
And some require oh so much suspension! The noises in space are what really bug me. Big props to any movie that gets this right.So true! I believe this exists for most sci-fi. We suspend belief in order to enjoy the story.
Take a sci-fi masterpiece like 2001: A Space Odyssey, which tried to be as accurate as possible to the point of complete silence in spaceship scenes. Brilliant movie, that could put a person to sleep!
That makes no sense. Light is energy and that includes light at any frequency or intensity so it can't lower temperature. Perhaps there's some confounding factor at play?It may be. Afterall, moonlight is cold. You can test it for yourself. Place one thermometer in the shade and another in full moonlight. The second one will register a lower temperature. Proof positive!
This is an experiment that has been widely reproduced by flat earthers to prove the moon is not a solid object 384,000Km away. It is a luminary, close by that shines with a cold light.That makes no sense.
John Ioannidis, a physician-scientist published a essay in 2005 entitled "Why Most Publish Research Findings Are False": https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1182327/It's a good example of the danger in trusting a single experiment or study as the definitive answer.

Some of his more recently writing makes uncomfortable reading, especially on COVID-19 but regardless the paper linked above appears to have stood the test of time.
For sure but the majority of people get their information not from peer reviewed science but from what news outlets focus on as being news worthy.Which is why science has peer review and reproducibility as part of its core.
I've been around long enough to know that mobile phones, burnt toast, artificial sweeteners, stress, genetically modified foods, pesticides, herbicides, medical scans, cosmetics, injury and trauma, dairy products and plastics etc etc etc will all give me cancer. Except they won't. Or will they?
