An apocalypse movie that’s fun to watch
In “Moonfall,” the latest movie from the so-called “master of disaster” Roland Emmerich, Earth faces an extinction-level event caused by an alien that’s been living on the moon.
Despite being plentiful in planetary destruction overflowing with explosions and incorporating an abundant amount of action, you might be surprised at how much care and consideration went into the physics and science behind such colossal cosmic carnage.
There’s an entire array of science consultants who worked on “Moonfall.” Mika McKinnon is a geophysicist and disaster researcher who has acted as a science advisor on several sci-fi TV shows and movies, including “Moonfall,” and we were fortunate enough to speak with her about what it was like to create the epic disaster film.
McKinnon said that there were “three science consultants, a medical consultant and a physical consultant and a shuttle consultant, like an astronaut consult” working to make “Moonfall” scientifically accurate, McKinnon said.
