Science

Catacombs Of The Moon

Normal fire cannot burn in space, but they could be colliding with a protostar or dense gas cloud, the gravity of which would heat up the gases. It would also create the shockwaves and explosions seen.

Catacombs Of The Moon

The first artificial heart was implanted in a patient in 1983. Complete mechanical hearts can damage red blood cells and are vulnerable to infection. More success has been found with small titanium pumps sewn directly into the left ventricle, a type that was used for the first successful long term artificial heart patient in 2000. The first entirely internal artificial heart (with no leads or pumps) was implanted in 2001. The box-like device in this episode looks more like a pacemaker than a blood pump. The operation and post operative care look nothing like modern medical procedures (especially putting a man covered in blood and dirt next to a patient recovering from a major operation).
