Armageddon - Super-Lev, or Nasa Redundancy?
During the course of the mission, a Russian cosmonaut - Lev - is picked up unexpectedly from MIR. However, no American astronauts/drillers have died. How, then, did Lev survive the 9.5 gee trip around the moon and the rough landing on Dottie? Did NASA think to add an extra flightsuit and chair on a ship that would meet only one other person out in space? Or, perhaps Lev is an engineered super-Russian who was able to survive the rough trip around the moon, and then live long enough in a vacuum to take dead Noonan's suit off of him and wear it himself. . . But even that doesn't fit the movie, since Lev is seen in a flightsuit and chair during the moon scene. The final possibility, and the only one that seems to fit the data, is that Noonan, the bit part, was jettisoned to make room for the comedy relief. Noonan is never seen during or after the moon orbit scene.

The movie establishes that there are a total of 14 astronauts/drillers between the 2 shuttles. That means 7 per shuttle. It's nowhere near unreasonable to believe that each shuttle was equipped for 8 people.

I don't have the DVD but according to the staff-list of the movie there were 13 astronauts taking off into space, so somewhere there should be an empty seat, right?

We have a newly designed, state-of-the-art, impenetrable, titanium alloy shielded space shuttle that they are all flying in to meet up with Dottie. The unfortunate happens and A.J.'s shuttle goes down. The shuttle is flipping and flopping, bouncing off rocks, and everything is going everywhere! Finally they skid to a halt. Luckily, the armadillo is right-side-up (whew!). It's amazing that after about 10 seconds of gun fire, the whole side of that impenetrable shuttle explodes to let out it's captives, revealing the fact that the walls aren't any better than that of a mobile home. Hmmm...
