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. No matter how many people say that money spent of space travel could be used to feed the starving millions around the world, it doesn’t make a difference because if we don’t spend enough on space exploration,

The film Avatar takes place in the virtual world or moon of Pandora, created by James Cameron with digital technology and colonized with fantastic creatures and an indigenous race of 10 feet tall, yellow eyed, blue striped aliens called the “Na’vi”. With Avatar, Cameron has delivered a fast paced fantasy adventure that weaves together streams of powerful themes that are very important to our modern world that they even extend far beyond the world of fictional film. The film itself, can be seen as a variety of things such as, a political film about war, the effects of violence, a social commentary about environmentalism, even speciesism. This could also be seen as simply a film about what it truly means to be human, which should be
All novels have a precise and clear genre—or do they? The novel, I am Legend by Richard Matheson proves this wrong. The genre of this novel remains unclear, and has become a debatable question on where it belongs in. I believe that I am Legend is a science fiction novel. First of all, science fiction is the fantastic made plausible through the backdrop of science.

She has tried to explain this idea very well in two of her poems in the collection of Life on Mars: “The Weather in Space” and “The Speed of Belief”. In these poems, the use of “space” as a metaphor along with the use of repetition technique by Smith, allows the reader to accompany her on her journey of grief of losing her father, exploring questions about afterlife, and how the sense of optimism and hope can help tackle the hardest journey of life. The opening poem “The Weather in Space” in Life on Mars starts with Smith questioning about the nature of God. She already believes in the existence of God, but she seeks to know what God is and where is God.

The secret life of Walter Mitty is a short story by James Thurber with a movie adaptation made in 2013; the movie adaptation is the clear better choice due to a multitude of reasons. First Walter has much better character development. One supporting detail of this is that Walter has a love interest in the movie. This gives the audience an interesting subplot and gives Walter an objective. Walter is in love with his co-worker Cheryl and has frequent daydreams about her and wants her to like him.
Throughout Bradbury’s book, The Martian Chronicles, a theme of ignorance is displayed. Ignorance can be found in almost each one of the short stories. The citizens of Earth are ignorant to the truth of what really does happen to the expeditions. The Martians have a hard time believing there is life on Earth and vice versa. Banning literature is a way for the government to keep its people living in ignorance.
One large similarity between many characters in Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles is that they are self centered and don’t tend to consider other’s sides to things. For example, in “The Earth Men” Mr. Xxx would not accept that maybe the people were actually from Earth and both them and himself weren’t actually insane and since he was so set in his own theory he killed the perfectly sane Earth men and himself. Also in the same story Captain Williams and his crew travelled around Mars for pure attention and acknowledgement of their accomplishments. One reason Bradbury might have had had this consistency is to show that acting on your greed typically doesn’t end well.
