People do not find a heart transplant surgical operation as unusual or a woman getting paid to be surrogate mother by carrying a fertilized embryo in her womb in a “baby factory” in some poor country. It is with the same open mind and careful observations that the movie “Men in Black II” is discussed and examined for some of the scientific principles portrayed in the film to enhance its appeal to audiences worldwide. Theories and principles about science are used in this film to aid its storyline and plot but these theories can either enhance the films portrayal of these theories or go off tangent and instead turn off audiences with unscientific embellishments.Right off the bat, so to speak, the movie seems to start on the wrong foot. In the opening credits of the film, a small alien spaceship appeared outside the window of the room where Peter Graves was recounting the history of the secret organization called “Men in Black” and the said spaceship is moving or flying very erratically. This means it was moving back and forth in a very unusual manner that defies the laws of flight, in particular that of momentum. Any object that is flying in a certain direction (inertia) cannot just change course so easily. In other words, it will take some time for that flying object or spaceship to change its course because momentum will carry it forward before its engines or whatever is powering it to fly can alter its flight path.Then a few scenes later, a small spaceship was shown arriving on Earth and departing in a little while supposedly carrying the sought-after “Light of Zartha” and this conical spaceship is shown taking off with very little exhaust from its booster engines. It requires a lot of power to overcome the force of gravity and very little smoke coming out defies logic and gravitys force.Another scene in the film shows a spaceship landing on the Earth but without using anything to slow down its descent; more remarkably, its landing on a hard surface of the Earth did not destroy it although gravitational force is so strong it can pull anything within its field to pull it down like what happens when a spaceship re-enters the atmosphere and gets burned down in the process due to the very strong pull. That particular scene did not portray a correct scientific principle which dictates any object approaching
