Hundreds of years ago, people used to believe that the earth was flat, but with the research and technology, we were able to find out that it is a perfect sphere. Aliens run along those same lines. Even with all the technology today, there is still no definite answer if we are alone in this massive universe or not. There is so much controversy weather or not aliens exist. Over the past few decades the ideas of aliens has morphed into a craze, that one has to ask themselves, “what is an alien?” With “aliens” being in Hollywood movies and roller coaster rides, what do we actually consider to be aliens?
In 2012, Ridley Scott unveiled Prometheus with middling results. I loved how it looked, I just didn 't like how nothing is really explained. From what I read about the development in the script, it was a direct Alien prequel, but then Scott said to not make it a direct prequel. He brought in new writers, and what we got was a confusing and cliche mess. It did reveal what the sky pilot was.
James Maxwell is the President of the World Republic and all he ever wanted to do was to travel into space. Sadly, that chance passed him by years ago “Then, when his chance had passed him by, he’d felt cheated. He wanted to blame others, but nobody else was really to blame.” Charles E. Frinch uses the ship to symbolize James Maxwell’s dream of going into space and how you might not become what you want, you can still
The renaissance was a time of great innovation and is considered “the bridge between the Middle Ages and modern history” (wikipedia.org). The renaissance is considered a bridge because of how people started to think, and how it influenced literature, science, philosophy and art. At the time of the renaissance, the knowledge that was known about space and astronomy was limited and some theories were erroneous as well, such as the theory that planets in space orbited around Earth. Astronomy was limited because of the lack of inventions and technology. An example of limited technology at the time would be the telescope, which could only magnify images about three times.
Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001: A Space Odyssey was a science fiction novel ahead of its time when it was first published. Humankind had not yet set foot on the moon, yet Clarke dreamed of reaching for the stars. This dream, however, was accompanied by some questions. 2001: A Space Odyssey offered its reader the chance to debate, among other things, the definitions of evolution and intelligence and also made them doubt their reliance on their trusted electronics. The first question that is posed in 2001: A Space Odyssey is that of creationism versus evolution, starting with the moment where the man apes first come into contact with the monolith.
This is also shown when we see the ship in comparison to the black hole. But what makes this film really special is how Nolan creates transitions between different scenes. Really impressive is how he connects the different locations and times. Often the video messages Cooper and the other receive are used to cut between them and Murphy. In the end of the film Nolan links time and space when Cooper sends messages to his daughter by using an alien
Ray Bradbury’s 1950 dystopian novel, The Rocket is a short science fiction classic based on a man who fantasizes of travelling to space. This futuristic tale communicates, how anyone is authorized to travel to space without any prior experience and preparation on how to operate and navigate a rocket.

Sure, we have the basic outline of what’s within the milky way, but there is a whole galaxy of possibilities out there we have yet to grasp. We are no longer limited to only exploring our planet, gone are the days of discovering new landmasses and being the first to climb the highest mountains. Now is the time for humanity to reach higher heights and aim beyond our own planet. Space exploration is very expensive, but many people think that these costs are worth it to be able to explore what’s out there, sending robots into outer space and receiving extraordinary images of things light years away that we would never be able to picture without advancements in our space program is what many people would consider, well worth the money. One way or another, someday the planet we all know, and love today will eventually be destroyed, consequently causing humanity to perish with it.
It depicted the power of static electricity and magnetic field as well as earth’s frequency. I watched as a spaceship was discovered which could travel from one frequency to another. I was spell-bound myself. I thought the earth has a frequency, if we change that frequency, we will reach to another dimension, and beyond. I was further inspired when I saw the movie “Apollo-13” and it laid down the foundation of my desire to build a career based on outer space.
The reasons I would go to space are there is a possibility to find new life, it would be an incredible experience, and you would be part of history. The first reason is the possibility of finding new life. Most people have thought about aliens at some point in their life. Scientist think about E.T. or Star Trek, while theologians wonder if we are alone, or if we could learn more about God from a new species.
