Sci-fi movies are great, there’s no denying that. From Star Wars lightsabers to big spaceships shooting laser beams through space, science fiction movies never fail to have a wow effect on audiences. But sometimes the science in them doesn’t quite hit the mark, that’s why we compiled a list of popular myths found in Sci-Fi movies:
When simple bullets don't cut it, movie directors and producers often resort to laser weapons and there is absolutely no problem with that.
However, the place where filmmakers take some liberty is the cosmetic appearance of these deadly weapons. The thing is, the color of laser beams only depends on the medium through which they're traveling, thus making the fact that they appear colored in space during movies simply impossible.
We've all seen this in infiltration type of action of movies like James bond. The protagonist puts a silencer on his gun and voila ! It's suddenly completely silent
Well unfortunately, that's not the case in the real world. While silencers do actually reduce the sound of a gunshot (to some extent), it is still pretty loud compared to how it's portrayed in movies.
