Imagine a world cloaked in complete darkness. Food and water supplies disappear, tsunamis and fires rage, and scorching temperatures plummet to an Ice Age cold within months. Many scientists believe these cataclysmic environmental changes wiped out the dinosaurs after a gigantic asteroid struck the planet millions of years ago...and some say humans could be the next species to face extinction. SUPER COMET: AFTER THE IMPACT dares to bring the unthinkable to life in a fascinating look at how humans could adapt to a new world plagued by devastation on a global scale. You'll be riveted as you watch this unfolding of ultimate destruction that also celebrates the will of our species to survive despite incredible odds.

I've seen this movie twice in the last two months, both times I saw error after error. Here are some examples (excuse my spelling). I want you to remember--I'm using National Geographic's facts here, not some Professor's who is a real expert on this subject.
1. Watching this movie would give you the impression that anybody who took cover during that first twenty four hours might survive the heat. They call it the 800 degree day. Old techno says POO POO! You think that if the comet hits today (it's 85 degrees outside) and the world wide temperature goes up to 800 degrees--that in twenty four hours the temperature is suddenly gonna drop back down to 85 degrees? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! No, twenty four hours later the temperature has probably dropped back to 790 or 780 degrees. It will take about three weeks for the temperature to go down to 150 degrees.
You will have to survive the 300/800 degree MONTH. That family who took a boat into that old roman sewer system--they all died. They either broiled or fried to death......no kidding. Everybody they met in that city died. Their dog died...the mice died...even the cockroaches died in that heat. The earthworms three feet underground fried.
2. In the movie, they show some poor man struggling to get home to his wife and family (she was at ground zero). Oldtechno says POO POO!!!
ALL OF THE OXYGEN in the atmosphere for a thousand miles in all directions from the impact crater is either burned up or contaminated with volcanic gases (volcanic gases are extremly toxic and UNBREATHABLE--it kills in a matter of minutes) That poor man never made his epic journey. He died.
3. In the movie it shows him dragging that sled over those (I guess I spelled this wrong) geodynes. Oldtechno says POO POO!! Geodynes are comet and crater ejecti. It's the material thrown back into the air from the impact. These geodynes are flying through the air from 5000 miles per hour to over 20.000 miles perhour. Some are thrown into space and never come back. All that is left go through the atmosphere like micro meteorites and hit the ground between 5000 and 20000 mph.
...and all of them are red burning hot. The entire earth's surface would burn up from these impacts. You can take a common rain drop, accelerate it up to 20000 miles per hour and it will blow a hole right through the armor plating on the side of a battleship.
So here's oldtechno's bottom line about these micro meteors and how to survive them.
One, if you are on the surface...you are dead.
Two, all those steel rod and concret structures...they all either burned up or were 'hulled' (blown holes in) EVERY ONE OF THEM FALLS TO THE GROUND.
To survive it, you have to be on Mars or underground in a deep cave that has its own oxygen supply.
4. Remember the family?...the daddy tries to fix an old radio (it's the right idea--but impossible) Oldtechno says POO POO!!!
There are no electronics on this planet that can withstand 800 degrees for twenty four hours and still work (that any of us could find outside a laboratory) All the electronic components (transistors, resistors, capacitor, diodes...etc...would fry, crack, explode--or something like that.....heck, even the solder would evaporate from the solder joints at that temperature.
Bottom line; there will be no electronics.
5. One of the things people do, is after the impact, they are still able to eat....something....six months later. Oldtechno says POO POO!!!
You take a can of food and heat it up to just 300 degrees for a few hours and it will 'pop' open. Heat another can up to 800 degrees for a few hours and it will explode like a quarter stick of dynamite--no kidding. THERE WILL BE NO FOOD LEFT! on the surface of this world. Futher...they said something about living on mold, mildew, and mushrooms. Well, oldtechno will just have to say..."800 degrees should have killed all of those off including their spore, for several feet underground."
5. Another point I'd like to make is that one moment where the two astronomers are drinking the water. The female mentions the water is still safe to drink but is becoming more and more acid (I think she mentioned something like vinegar). Well........oldtechno was just wondering--what does that acid rain do to any surviving spores and seeds?
Futher, go into a burned out building sometime and look around. Find a piece of metal--see all those pit holes in the metal? When you mix smoke from a fire, with water from a fire truck, you get that kind of acid water, but stronger. So why is oldtechno saying this? Well, I think the makers of the movie didn't take into account the thick oily smoke from the worldwide fire mixed with natural rain water.
Six. Finally, I would just like to say, I'm glad they came out with this movie--the more, the better. But I feel they should go back and remake it accurately this time.........More Science, less spectacular special effects.
