Well that's all true, and I realize a lot of the show references
a lot of scientific and mathematical ideas that only people with degrees in these fields would ever come close to noticing. But alls I'm saying is that, at the very least, the science on the show isn't consistant. Sometimes it'll nail some obscure fact perfectly, and then in the next scene there's sound in space.
Mind you, that's a piece of what makes the show so great.
