Mixed feelings about the scientific accuracy of this film (artists ought to be held to the same standards as scientists…we should no more accept depictions of Martian dust storms toppling a rocket than creationism as a plot catalyst). Nevertheless badass supersedes all. Good to see a masculine educated hero!
Hopefully a semi-realistic portrayal of Mars expeditions will encourage explorers. We ought to hold storytellers though to the same scientific standards we do creationists…Martian dust storms are incapable of pushing over a rocket under any circumstances: http://factualfiction.com/marsartists/2014/11/11/miseducating-millions-of-taxpayers-en-masse/
Set to the words of Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot is an animation that situates human history against the tapestry of the cosmos. Using a eclectic combination of art styles woven seamlessly together through music and visuals, the animation seeks to remind us that regardless of our differences, we are one species living together on the planet we call Earth.
