* CrypticBackgroundReference: During the X-1 flight, Yeager has a line that seems like a throwaway: "Hey, Ridley. Make a little note here, would ya? ''Elevator effectiveness regained.''" Nothing else is mentioned about it. However, in earlier RealLife prep flights of the X-1, Yeager had noticed that when approaching Mach 1, the plane's elevator controls would go all wonky. He and Jack Ridley worked for weeks on modifying the plane's elevator system to overcome the issue. Yeager's note that the elevator was working was a signal to Ridley that he was ready to take his shot at pushing past Mach 1.

* HeroOfAnotherStory: Wally Schirra (played by Lance Henriksen), who helped clear Grissom's name by blowing his capsule's hatch ''on purpose.'' [[note]]To blow the hatch, the astronaut had to smack a very heavy switch that kicked back when the explosive bolts fired, which left a nasty bruise on Schirra's hand. Grissom's hand didn't have a bruise when he was rescued.[[/note]] In the film, he's probably the most forgettable of the seven astronauts, and one of two whose flight isn't even shown (the other being Scott Carpenter).
