Flipping channels, I ran across Deep Impact during a speech given by the president (played by Morgan Freeman).
The black president didn’t amaze me. Hollywood figured out how to portray them a decade before the US figured out how to elect one.
What amazed me is that with all the really cool forward looking technology for the time, instructions for how to communicate the evacuation was sent by fax to news agencies. Yeah, it wasn’t emailed. The White House didn’t post it on a web site. No mention of Facebook. 😀
Is NASA powering landing craft with nuclear drives?
At least since this movie aired we have implemented programs to discover both the large and medium objects capable of regional to global catastrophes.
We still need a plan to do something about the ones we anticipate will hit us. Or how about a plan to save our legacies? (The children, art, history)
