Everywhere you look, there are similarities to be found. For instance, who’d have thought that the problem holding NASA back from identifying and tracking large near-Earth objects (NEOs) in space is the same problem keeping me from opening my line of Beer and Bacon eateries? It all comes down to Congress not footing the bill, really, but at least I don’t have Congress on my back about it.
It’s been a little over a month since the double-billed meteor strike in Russia and the fly-by of the DA14 asteroid, so Congress gathered officials from NASA, the White House, and the Air Force and asked what’s being done to squash future NEO threats. After some agreement that last month’s episodes were purely coincidental, the seriousness of such an imposing disaster guided the rest of the conversation, which could seemingly be summarized as: No money, no progress.
In 2005, Congress gave NASA the explicit directive of NEO classification, with a goal of identifying 90 percent of these Armageddon-bringers, rocks larger than 459 feet across (140 m). But NASA’s chief, Charles Bolden, had few encouraging words for the space rock-headed governing body.
It’s good to see things going smoothly, at least for one day. Production began yesterday on Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros.’ Godzilla reboot, and director Gareth Edwards has officially made the leap from small-budget independent filmmaking to big Hollywood directing. To commemorate this milestone in Edwards’ career, the 37-year-old British director made a special video on the set of Godzilla. Watch the video below:
As problematic as both M. Night Shyamalan and Will Smith movies can be at times, their new joint venture, After Earth, looks promising, and is getting a decent amount of positive advanced buzz. We’ll have to wait until June 7, 2013 to find out for ourselves, but a couple of new international character posters have arrived on the scene to tease the release.
Joss Whedon’s adaptation of Marvel’s The Avengers was a pretty damn good time. Part of the ever-expanding Marvel movie universe, the film raked in absurd amounts of cash across the world, so a sequel was inevitable. Hell, it was a foregone conclusion we’d see more big-screen Avengers before the movie even opened. One thing the movie was missing, however, was a Belgian dude doing the splits and spin-kicking bad guys. It’s a possibility, though slim and unlikely, that The Avengers 2 could rectify this situation, that is, if Jean-Claude Van Damme has anything to do with it.
Pacific Rim is coming and bringing with it a ton of giant robots versus giant monsters action. Over the weekend a photo of a footprint surfaced, teasing the massive scale of the creatures in Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming film. Now Legendary Picture has unleashed yet another new photo that reveals a little more about the monsters, called Kaiju, that emerge from the ocean to cause all sorts of ruckus.
