Space less noisy than portrayed in movies
Wellington: A day after attending the New York premiere of the post-apocalyptic thriller, ` After Earth`, legendary astronaut Buzz Aldrin admits that the film was a great family drama, but the space scenes were not realistic.
His main point of contention was that there was a lot of noise, as he said that "in space, you don`t get that much noise," Stuff.co.nz reported.
Aldrin, who followed Neil Armstrong onto the surface of the moon during the historic Apollo 11 landing in 1969, said that " noise doesn`t propagate in a vacuum. We talked over headsets."
"Fortunately, we were free of static. We could communicate with each other pretty clearly, and mission control, though we were 50,000 miles away," he said.
