Added DiffLines:

* FauxHorrific: Homer and Bart find a space launch so boring that they scramble to turn it off and sigh in relief once they cut power to the TV entirely.


Added DiffLines:

* NotHelpingYourCase: In the space launch near the beginning of the episode, the commentators try to shake off accusations of a boring launch by playing up the vibrancy of the crew, and don't do a good job of it.
--> '''Commentator:''' They're a colorful bunch. They've been dubbed "The Three Musketeers". ''(stuffy laugh)''
--> '''Other Commentator:''' And we laugh legitimately. There's a mathematician, a different kind of mathematician, and a statistician.

* KentBrockmanNews: A classic example, where Kent Brockman, after seeing an ant float past the news camera, overreacts and immediately assumes a race of 'space ants' has enslaved the crew and is about to take over earth, then apologizes after someone presumably has a talk with him. He seems surprisingly OK with [[MemeticMutation welcoming our new insect overlords]] before that point though.

* {{Homage}}: This entire episode is a much shorter, less inspirational version of ''Film/TheRightStuff''.



** ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'': Homer floating in weightless condition to the tune of Strauss' ''The Blue Danube''. Later Bart throws a marker up in the air, which transitions to a scene in space, in reference to the famous scene where a prehistoric human throws his bone in the air, cutting to a spaceship 2.000 years later. Homer appearing as foetus in space, while AlsoSprachZarathustra plays in the background is a reference to the final scene of the film.
