Deep Impact (1998)



Concept 1: Nicolas Cage says that the earth will be destroyed by "A super-flare, a 100 micro-tesla wave of radition that would destroy our ozone layer, killing every organism on the planet." There are three problems with the way the Earth will end:

1. Telsa is a measure of magnetism, not a measure of radiation.
2. The Ozone layer can not be destroyed through radiation exposure. The sun must be extinguished in order to destroy the ozone layer.
3. The movie depicts the earth turning into cinder after the ozone layer is destroyed. Ozone layer depletion would eventually kill all life, but only through slow radiation poisoning.
