Lights! Camera! Science! Why Hollywood Should Focus on Real Space Stories

Memo to Hollywood: Science is not boring.

Producers and directors may think that science is only exciting when it is science fiction, but the truth is almost always stranger (and more interesting) than fiction.

Indeed, Hollywood has the men and the movie to prove this claim, as well as the box-office receipts to confirm this assertion.

Look no further than the 1995 docudrama “Apollo 13,”directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon and the late Bill Paxton.

Australia is, after all, more than the “Land Down Under”: It is a land of Anglo-Asian influence, home to a diversity of peoples and a number of top research universities, doctors, engineers, entrepreneurs and advocates of space-based research.

Hundreds of School Experiments Travel to Space Thanks to these Dreamers

Think up a scientific experiment in the classroom and launch it in a rocket to the International Space Station to test it in microgravity conditions: the company DreamUp has taken on the mission that young students can carry out that original activity with their help.

Some schools and institutions are already turning to this company that brings space research closer to the classroom and has helped launch 370 student experiments.
