* EveryoneKnowsMorse: One of the campers thinks to use a telemetry switch to send Morse code in place of the nonfunctional radio. But it takes quite a while for anyone in the control room to notice that one of their console lights is rapidly blinking in an irregular pattern...
** Actually, a very regular pattern, unlike the rest of the console.

* CaliforniaDoubling: An interesting case. The movie was filmed on location at the real-life Space Camp at the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, and at the Kennedy Space Center in Titusville, Florida. However, the movie places both locations together in the same vicinity. Space Camp at Kennedy Space Center did not open until 1987 (it closed in 2002).

* ActivationSequence: After hearing Max's wish to go into space, Jinx goes to the NASA main network, which he activates in a scene where the top of his main body lifts up with flashing lights coming out of it, while the computers activate one by one, their lights and screens coming on. He does it a second time later, but since we've already seen in by that point this one only lasts about five seconds as opposed to more than thirty.

'''''[=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.
