Best Movies of the Year

Claims of the “best movie of the year” aside, a few films have seriously impacted me this year and compelled me to seek out more of the story.

1. Arrival – Based on a short story by Ted Chiang and published in “Stories of Your Life and Others”. I’m well into this book and am seriously impressed with Chiang’s imaginative and compelling approach to Science Fiction. 

2. Hidden Figures – The movie was very compelling, but ultimately hints at a much larger story surrounding each of these women and their peers in the early days of our space program. Cue Margot Lee Shetterly’s “Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race”. (There’s also a Young Reader’s version of this book that’s begging to be on your kid’s bookshelf.)

Welcome to NASA’s Eyes, a way for you to learn about your home planet, our solar system, the universe beyond and the spacecraft exploring them. With applications for Mac and PC as well as apps for mobile devices there are many ways for you to follow along with our scientists and engineers.

Got my laptop all set up to stalk Cassini and Juno and all the other awesome NASA Missions exploring our Solar System!
