Aliens uh?

If you’re bored and feel for a challenge this weekend: I watched a couple of videos online that were interesting enought to share.

‘Alien Planet’ (1h:30m) is a documentary about an imaginative human mission to an inhabited planet (“Darwin IV”) 40 or some lightyears away. I added this video in my ‘recent links’ section last night but I thought it was worth mentioning here as well. The documentary is cheesy but interesting, particularly because of the great animation (done by a Montreal-based animation shop). I thought that the scientific explanations of other lifeforms (or the attempts thereof) were awkward. Also, what the hell makes George Lucas an expert. See also IMDB’s entry on this documentary.

There was a buzz around the January 30th ‘God Debate’ between Chris Hitchens and rabbi Shmuley Boteach. The host of that debate has put the full video online which can be watched at the 92Y site. It’s a long video too: one and a half hour, I believe.

And once again, I would like to remind you of that other video I posted in another entry, which is the one about gravity: ‘What on Earth is wrong with gravity’. While I’m not a fan of the way how Horizon presents these kind of heavy topics, in this case they do an excellent job in trying to explain what gravity is about, in exactly 1h:30m too.
