Matt and Water on Mars
I wonder if the announcement of the discovery of water on Mars was aimed to tie in to the opening of the movie The Martian starring Matt Damon. After all, we know these CEO's love to talk about "synergy" and maybe NASA is for sale now too.
The film is about a scientist in space who mistakenly gets left behind by his crew. Familiar? We'll never forget little ET who didn't make it back to the spaceship. The whole world unites to try to get Matt back to earth. Familiar? We all know that one sure way everyone on earth will get together is when we are attacked by aliens. Of course, there's nothing alien about the likeable Matt Damon.
When a film touches on these familiar themes, there's something for everyone. Including me!
