** After the first accident, the crew has to decide about whether or not they will ďgo onĒ. But the decision is pointless, as they already have the velocity to get to Jupiter, and they would have slingshot around Jupiter to get home.

** After landing on Europa, the crew is told the ambient temperature is holding at Absolute Zero, far colder than the mean temperature of Europa. Odd, but no big deal. Until we are told the ice will continue to shift more and more violently as the temperature drops.

Added DiffLines:

** The crew communicates with Mission Control without they time delay you'd really have at interplanetary distances.


** You'd be forgiven for thinking they were actually exploring an Earth-sized world with a vast lake of freshwater rather than the small ice-moon. With such low gravity and an environment of saltwater, having the ice breaking under [[spoiler:Katya and Daniel]] would have not been an immediately life threatening event - [[spoiler:they]] would have likely floated for a while. In addition, real astronauts train for zero-gravity environments underwater all the time - water is no big deal to a proper space suit.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Despite everything they try, the entire crew gets killed off. But they still managed to complete their primary mission: Discover the existence of life on Europa, and they did, meaning their deaths weren't for nothing.]]

* RasterVision: Used not only for video footage but for the ''poster''.


* FinalGirl: [[spoiler: Averted. While some clips seem to be of Rosa being interviewed after the mission, this is in fact footage she herself recorded a short time before her death.]]
