The latest attempt on Apple TV to make a movie of the famous science fiction novels is an helluva effort. Part One of several, apparently. The CGI, alone, is worth watching, especially the ornithopters. But the actors are good, too. Try it. You won’t be disappointed.
A killer flicker, despite being almost eight years old, which probably helped make Uvalde boy Matthew David McConaughey the star he became. It seems to be a science fiction tale (with really good graphics) but actually is fully about the oldest and best of human emotions: love.
Launched on Christmas Day morning, the Webb telescope has got about six weeks of travel to get to L2, the second Lagrange point, which is 1.5 million kilometers away. (LaGrange points are where Earth’s gravity doesn’t affect objects in orbit.) With a bigger mirror than Hubble and in a much higher orbit, Webb will be able to peer much farther back in time (history) perhaps even to see the first galaxies. Will primarily look at the universe in the infrared wavelength versus Hubble’s optical and ultraviolet wavelengths. Should be interesting.
