First Man

Factual error: When Neil is returning to Earth in the X-15 it shows him flying through clouds and cuts back to an rapidly decreasing altitude reading of around 70 000 feet. Clouds can not form at 70 000 feet because the air is too cold and thin. Earlier in the scene they show Neil supposedly 'flying through the clouds' at 40 000 feet while the X-15 is still under the wing of a B-52. Clouds that thick can't get up to 40 000 feet unless it is a thunderstorm.
