10INACCURATE: EXPLOSIONS IN SPACE

We might as well start with the inaccuracy that everyone is already aware of. Explosions in space. Totally not a thing. At least not how they’re portrayed in Star Wars. There are two rather large components to why the explosions in Stars Wars don’t make any sense. First

off, the explosions are loud, which makes absolutely no sense in the vacuum of space.

Sounds waves need to be carried through a medium like gases or liquid in order to be audible, of which there are effectively none in the vacuum of space. And B, the explosions are often large and last a relatively long time, but with no oxygen to burn in the vacuum of space, these explosions should appear much more like the flash of a camera rather than the types of explosions that would take place on somewhere like earth. Or Hoth.
