'''''[=SpaceCamp=]''''' is a family adventure movie from 1986 about a group of kids at a space camp who unexpectedly get launched up into space for real. However the shuttle was still in pre-flight prepping and thus wasn't prepared for any kind of full mission. With only a limited air supply and virtually no communication with Earth, the kids and their instructor (played by Kate Capshaw) must [[PowerOfFriendship work together]] to get home safe and sound.

* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Tish is in the middle of explaining her idea of sending Morse Code to NASA when she sees something interesting out the window.


Added DiffLines:

* DidNotThinkThisThrough: JINX apparently never considered that sending an unprepared shuttle, specifically one with just one tank of oxygen and short-range radio only, into space with people on board might not be the best idea. It only occurs to him after ''Atlantis'' is already in orbit, by which time it's too late to do anything about it.

* RealityEnsues: After the initial euphoria of orbital flight, Max says he wants to go home, and the questions start as the kids try to wrap their heads around exactly what happens. Andie takes charge immediately, telling them they ''will'' get home.

* CaliforniaDoubling: An interesting case. The movie was filmed on location at the real-life Space Camp at the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL, and at the Kennedy Space Center in Titusville, FL. However, the movie places both locations together in the same vicinity. Note that Space Camp was also at the Kennedy Space Center; however this one closed as of 2002.
