* {{Exposition}}: By WoodyWoodpecker, no less. Joe Sweeney serves as an Average Joe the scientists have to explain things to.

Seven years before Sputnik launched TheSpaceRace, and nineteen before the Apollo 11 landing, this 1950 production by George Pál was the first major science-fiction film produced in the United States that dealt seriously with the prospect, problems, and technology of space travel.

* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:While the three main characters are arguing over who's going to stay behind, Joe Sweeney quietly slips out the airlock and laconically tells the others to return to Earth without him. Of course as the comic relief never gets killed the others figure out a way to save everyone.]]

* TechnologyPorn: The movie goes into detail on the construction of the rocket and spacesuits. There's also a ZeeRust verions when that wonder of modern technology, the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Differential_analyser differential analyser]], is shown. Apparently an infallible MasterComputer, as when it works out the Luna is too heavy to get home...

* NoOSHACompliance: Check out that ladder on the ''Luna''. When was the last time you climbed a ladder that was eight stories tall (while wearing a spacesuit)? It also leads right past the radioactive exhaust vent for the atomic engine.

* BoringReturnJourney: The movie ends on the Luna launching from the lunar surface. Although it might not have been that boring in practice -- thanks to the reaction mass they ditched, they'd be moving at quite a clip! And according to Woody's exposition, the Luna is supposed to hit the atmosphere nose-first, which means the acceleration couches will be facing the wrong direction, [[NoSeatBelts with only a single chest and knee strap]] to hold them in.

They then return to the ground via parachutes, an iffy proposition for a 150-foot high rocket that has to land on its fins!
