The other piece of art, “2001: A Space Odyssey” is the science fiction movie by Stanley Kubrick. The plot of the film is separated into three sections that are set in different intervals of time. Kubrick is inspired by “The Sentinel” while making the movie. Whereas “2001: A Space Odyssey” and its source of inspiration, “The Sentinel” differ in the number of relics, the result of their mission and the outcome of the technological advancements; they are also similar in the function of the sentinel and the monolith, colonization ambition and dependence on technology. However, only the monolith shows a remarkable progress, both of the pieces has a figure that represents the transition phase between ancient times to the qualified future.
In the movie, a crew of 6 brave men and women set out on a mission to Europa, with the fear of the unknown lurking around every unexplored corner. Similarly, within Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles the story titled “The Third Expedition” operates its plot while commanding the same fear as men land onto a Mars they never expected. As no one knows what exactly lies in the unknown, fear of the unknown is a common choice for science fiction and takes many different forms as explored by Europa Report and “The Third Expedition” from Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles. Plot Summary As the movie opens, the crew is
Some movies are better than others when it comes to portraying the book in the same light as it was written and this movie does a good job of making the book come to life except three keys important details. First detail being left out was the appearance or even mention of the character Dan Cody an influential character in Gatsby's life. Also, the owl-eyes guys in the library nick encounters is not shown in the movie. Other things such as Tom and Myrtle's appearances were skewed in the movie. Dan Cody one of the most influential if not the most influential person to Gatsby is left out.
Overall, the 2013 movie portrayed the book much better. The directors and actors of each movie viewed the novel in different ways. The 2013 version seemed to take it more serious while the 2000 version did not care as much. If the 2000 version had included better actors, it would have been more enjoyable. Both movies have similar and different qualities, but the variances stand out much more than the
The NASA Moon Landing Conspiracy The conspiracy of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, better known as NASA, Moon Landing has been around for decades. Ever since this event occurred in 1969, there has been speculation. The world watched the live T.V broadcast in awe as Neil Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the surface of the Moon. People brought the belief of film making to the landing, the pictures sent back from Apollo 11 were found unruly, and when the crew returned to Earth their reactions to the skeptics were validated with their hesitant responses to the events. The future of space exploration will have forever changed from this moment on.
The TV show “Firefly” was a space western that aired from 2002 to 2003, and it followed the adventures of the crew of the spaceship Serenity. The show was abruptly canceled after only 14 episodes; however, since then it has turn into a cult classic. In my opinion, it was one of the greatest shows to ever air on TV. The “Firefly” universe is a fascinating and exciting place, for it is a brilliant mix of both the sci-fi and western genres. This combination of sci-fi and western may seem somewhat unusual, but it is flawlessly executed in “Firefly”.
He has helped test many machines to make space exploration possible and be able to learn about the universe. For example, in the article, How did Neil Armstrong change the world?, it says, “Neil Armstrong changed the world by becoming the first man in history to successfully pilot a spacecraft to land safely on the lunar surface and then walk on the moon.” This tells us how this event changed how space exploration is and the machines to run it. Also he helped teach and advance the technology used for space exploration. As said in the article Neil Armstrong by A+E Networks, it states, “...he joined the faculty of the University of Cincinnati as a professor of aerospace engineering.” Which shows how he helped space exploration to help us to learn
“The Sound of Thunder” is a story written by Ray Bradbury and it is about a time in which people can time travel. The main character, Eckels, goes back in time to shoot a dinosaur. This story is science fiction because it has futuristic technology. In “Nethergrave”, which is written by Gloria Skurzynsk, it is about a boy named Jeremy who gets stuck inside of a virtual type world. The story doesn’t ever tell us if he gets out of the virtual world, but you can make an inference that he doesn’t.
I realized that from the very start I loved the environment. I loved to serve the people. I had this crazy idea of volunteering myself into a manned mission to space --- to make it sound more awesome --- to Mars. Speaking of, I couldn’t help but delight in this science fiction drama film, entitled, The Martian which is based on the book of the same name written by Andy Weir in 2011, The Martian.
Although the movie did have some interesting additions and removals, the book was far more appealing to a general audience than the movie. One of the first reasons for why the book is better than the movie is because of the characters. In the movie, they removed Yitzchak and Reuven. These are very important characters in the story. They even replaced Gitl with Aunt Mina, who did not play as big of a role compared to Gitl’s.
The book, while not written during the United State’s race with Russia to go into space, was written during a time when such interest was still forming due to recent advances in space travel capabilities. Such a fascination can be found in Clarisse during her very first conversation with Montag, when she mentions a “man on the moon” (Bradbury 7). The same curiosity can even be spotted in Montag himself, if the comment Clarisse makes about how he looked at the moon whenever she mentioned it (Bradbury 21) is any indication. The interest shown by these characters is not surprising, though, when one knows that Bradbury himself had a deep, invested fascination with space. For Bradbury, space was the big thing and he imagined it as “an expanse to be filled by the imagination” (Seed 122).
