ABC News reports that [ABC News has] "picked out five more sci-fi films that go against the grain, and contain some accurate, plausible science...

2001 - A Space Odyssey (Two-Disc Special Edition) ...All scenes in outer space are silent – sound does not travel in a vacuum The stars do not move past the ship – for there to be a visible motion of the star field, the ship would have to be travelling at close to the speed of light The crew eat paste-like food and only drink liquids through straws...

Alien (The Director's Cut) ...This sci-fi horror has a number of realistic touches, such as the use of suspended animation to keep the spaceship's crew alive during decades-long interstellar travel
