‘Godzilla’ and the movies with serious scientific errors – Film and TV – Culture

In fact, in many films scientific and historical errors are made that could be categorized as ‘serious’but without them some of these films would not be possible.

One of them is that in the film there is a savage fight between a tyrannosaurus rex and a giganotosaurustwo beings who lived in different decades and places.

According to the BBC, the tyrannosaurus rex lived until the end of the Cretaceous period, about 68 million years ago, in North America. On the other hand, the giganotosaurus lived 99 million years ago, in what is now South America.

Another of the most obvious errors is the design of the velociraptorbecause in science it is believed that this creature had feathers.

“We knew that raptorial dinosaurs, the small velociraptor, must have feathers. Steven and I discussed it, but it was technologically impossible,” Jack Horner, scientific adviser for the production of Jurassic Park, told the BBC.

The most outstanding it has to do with the main character, the gigantic mutated reptile. According to La Vanguardia, a creature of such size cannot exist, since the so-called cubic-square law, which was enunciated by Galileo in the 16th century, says that in a gravitational field there is a maximum size for any body.

This means that no matter how big a reptile or insect is, its legs, although proportional to its size, could not support the weight on a planet with a force of gravity like Earth.

Also, in the 1954 version, the scientist Kyohei Yamane says that “two million years ago, the brontosaurus and other dinosaurs were at their peak”, but in reality these creatures existed more than 145 million years ago.

There is a scene where, in the middle of a city, a farmer is seen leading a group of llamasanimal that has its origin in South America, so it is practically impossible that it existed in Greece at that time.

Theoretically, several cells can be mutated to spread in an area of ​​the body, but from there to think that the genetic heritage can be changed is very unlikely, according to La Vanguardia.

According to La Vanguardia, laser light needs solid matter to be visible, not just air. In fact, in the case of outer space, there is no air.

“If we gently hit a board with the eraser several times, chalk dust will come off. If at that moment we make a beam from a laser pointer go through the little cloud, we will see how the laser beam can materialize and, therefore, it can be seen Otherwise, it is invisible,” Cayetano Gutiérrez Pérez, professor of Physics and Chemistry, explained to the aforementioned medium.
