The US space agency Nasa has beren having a bit of back-and-forth with the social media account for Halle Berryâ€™s upcoming sci-fi blockbuster.
Moonfall is a sci-fi movie exploring what happens when a mysterious force knocks the moon out of orbit and onto a collision course with Earth.
Itâ€™s directed by none other than Independence Day helmer Roland Emmerich, but the team at Nasa were pretty quick to shoot down the filmâ€™s premise.
â€˜At only ~240,000 miles away, our nearest neighbor affects our life here on Earth. Here are a few reasons why weâ€™re grateful the moon is stable in its orbit (no offense Moonfall),â€™ tweeted Nasaâ€™s Moon team â€“ tagging the filmâ€™s social media account in the tweet.
Moonfall then responded with a gif of the moon about to strike Earth, tweeting, â€˜Youâ€™re telling me this isnâ€™t actually going to happen?â€™
The response was a flat â€˜Noâ€™, alongside a facepalm and eye roll emoji.
The team went on to explain that the moon is what gives Earth its long days.
â€˜Over the course of their formation and evolution, the moonâ€™s gravitational pull slowed Earthâ€™s rotation to the very reasonable 1000mph it is now,â€™ the agency wrote.
Despite being called out by the space agency, Moonfall shared a small behind-the-scenes video.
In it, the filmmakers reveal they actually had experts from Nasa come in to consult on the film, to try and make it at least slightly realistic.
â€˜Whatever you do, you want to do it as correctly as possible. Even if itâ€™s a fantastic movie,â€™ Emmerich said in the clip.
