NASA! This means every weekday in March will feature a new post about NASA, and I'm hosting a giant giveaway in order to encourage people to spread the NASA love. For more information on the giveaway, check out this post.
Today we have a special guest post by author and fellow League member Lissa Price! She's posting about NASA in film.
NASA and the Movies
by Lissa Price
1) Gattaca (1997)
2) Contact (1997)
3) Metropolis (1927)
4) The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)
5) Woman in the Moon (1929) (the first film to use the countdown that NASA later copied)
6) The Thing From Another World (1951)
7) Jurassic Park (1993)
1) 2012 (2009)
2) The Core (2003)
3) Armageddon (1998)
4) Volcano (1997)
5) Chain Reaction (1996)
6) The 6th Day (2000)
7) What the #$*! Do We Know? (2004)
You probably guessed that List 2 is their “worst” list. In fact, they use Armageddon as part of their training program, quizzing trainees to find all the impossibilities in the film (approx. 168).
