The consultation by N.A.S.A. scientists was requested before the filming of this movie, but N.A.S.A. stated that the events in this movie were too ridiculous actually to occur, and denied the request. N.A.S.A. sent a memo out to all of its employees stating that they were not allowed to comment on the likelihood of the events portrayed, but later rescinded this restriction.

Jason Evans: Yeah, I think I got the hang of it.
Sam, Laura and the other students are watching TV coverage of the national weather disasters in New York City. However, the Fox channel they are watching is the local Fox affiliate in Washington DC (as seen by the "DC" letters next to the call sign), when obviously they should be watching whatever Fox station has coverage for Manhattan.
The opening credits are reflected in the water and ice in the background.
