    Oil?!!!   Don't you remember "Destination Moon," the 1950 granddaddy of
    all heavy-on-the-science science fiction movies where the communications
    antennas won't deploy and the rookie astronaut says "gee, I don't know
    why, I greased them all up" and the mission commander has to explain
    that in space the grease turns to glue right before having to go on a
    perilous spacewalk to free them up?
