* TooDumbToLive: In context, anyway. Surely, Rudy--who was put in charge of "equipment function and operation"--would've figured out by then that the Shuttle's on-orbit propulsion system was not the same as the launch propulsion system before suggesting it as a source of oxygen.

Surely, Rudy--who was put in charge of "equipment function and operation"--would've figured out by then that the Shuttle's on-orbit propulsion system was not the same as the launch propulsion system before suggesting it as a source of oxygen.[[note]]The launch propulsion system uses liquid hydrogen fuel and liquid oxygen oxidizer, fed by the external tank. The on-orbit propulsion system, the oft-mentioned Orbital Maneuvering System (OMS), uses hydrazine fuel and (di)nitrogen tetroxide oxidizer.[[/note]]

'''Andie:''' Because someday, you're goin' up. But the only way that will happen is if you have every drill here down better than everyone else. There's no room for mistakes. Every 'i' dotted, every 't' crossed. That's the way I learned it. That's the way you'll learn it. You copy?\\

** Handwaved in the film; when Zach is pinning up the announcement he mentions the Camp trying to get permission to have campers in the test. After all, accidental launches only happen once in 4 billion years, right?

''[=SpaceCamp=]'' is a family adventure movie from 1986 about a group of kids at the titular real life U.S. [=SpaceCamp=] 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.
