Actually, I didn't have an issue with that part. The return capsules aren't aerodynamically stable any way but heat shield down, and a similar scenario took place with soyuz 5. The service module didn't separate, and it entered the atmosphere pointed in the wrong direction. Eventually the service module broke off, and the capsule tumbled a bit then righted itself.

Funny, I have to stop associating Ms. Bullock with romantic comedy/straight comedy so much. There's Gravity - and then last night my wife made me sit down and watch The Blind Side. I suppose many here have seen it, as I guess Bullock won an Academy Award for it.
The movie was decent. I thought it toned down some of the subject matter and scenes from how it actually went down in real life, maybe to keep a PG rating so a family could see it together? Either way the movie did clue me in about the family who took in Michael Oher, a kid in and out of foster homes and helped him to help himself. I had heard of Oher, a star player for the Ravens, but didn't know his story. A true success story.
