A Beautiful Planet – IMAX 3D Premier

by Mark Cantyon 25/05/2016
"A Beautiful Planet" is breathtaking, especially in IMAX 3D - It's totally immersive. Toni said in her introductory speech that what made the most impressive footage possible was the Cupola Module, with it's clear view of the earth passing below the ISS. It's hard to believe that you'd ever want to do anything but look out the window while there. The view is breathtaking.

Bridging the Stellar Divide

by Chris Roperon 24/04/2016
When our earliest ancestors gazed up into the night sky, dwarfed by the vast sparkling vista of light and darkness, it is easy to imagine their wonder.

The Sound Of Space: NASA Records Space Noise

by The_Dark_Mikeon 07/11/2014
Apparently Ridley Scott has been bullshitting us all this time : In space, you can be heard. This video surfaced in October of NASA recordings of planets and our solar system. They used the space probes INJUN1, ISEE1,  and HAWKEYE (nerds)  to pick up electromagnetic vibrations via plasma wave antennae. They set about to then […]

Top 5 Hardest Working Female Actors From Sci-Fi & Fantasy

by Becca Harperon 08/03/2014
Today is International Women’s Day and I want to celebrate some of Sci-Fi & Fantasy’s hardest working female actors. Sidenote: whilst researching I found a saddening phenomenon, google ‘female sci-fi actors’ and the first few entries contain the word ‘sexiest’…this makes me very angry.  The choices I have made have been picked for their contributions […]

by Chris Batemanon 03/03/2014
“Do you really not know what nuclear fusion is?” Everyone who has played Valve’s Portal loves GLaDOS, that’s a simple fact.

So, how would you […]
