Armageddon: Armadillo Jump
Physics → Gravity → Reduced Gravity
The crew is trying to reach the shuttle that already landed on the asteroid. While traveling to it, the crew members come across a giant ravine in the asteroid and have no way to cross it. Since there is less gravity on the asteroid, they try to jump over the ravine. They successfully jump over it, and their trajectory leads them away from the asteroid, but they manage to turn the engines back on in time to return to the asteroid.
