NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, bringing the celestial wonders of Saturn’s rings to a screen near you since 2004, has outdone itself once again with its recent portrait of Prometheus, a glittering beauty of a moon suspended in a ring of ice and dust.
I was 9 in 1993 when the original Jurassic Park came out and it holds a special place in my heart as a genuine classic family movie I was able to see during its original run, and at just the right age to be fully captivated by all its fear and wonder.
In science fiction movies and TV shows, intelligent aliens are usually the same basic shape as humans: two arms, two legs and a head. But why would creatures that evolved on a completely different planet look so similar to us? We asked some experts, and they told us the most likely explanations for humanoid aliens.
Monsters, Inc., one of my favorite Pixar movies, used the idea of monsters and scares and creepy creatures for laughs and a heartwarming story.

The newest promo video for Prometheus is pretty phenomenal—Michael Fassbender, in chokingly creepy fashion, introduces his David android, who we of course know will turn out to be evil and awful. But hey, this is the real future.
