Apollo's Legacy is Keeping Us Grounded

For the full, more eloquently written op-ed that includes a full source list, check out my latest blog at Discover:

**Anticipating a huge backlash, I will probably not be looking at comments on this video. If gets extremely vitriolic, I will likely turn them off. And for everyone telling me it’s tacky to list credentials, try being a woman in science on the Internet, then tell me it’s not necessary...**

I'm trying out some new gear so bear with me as I dial it in. I feel like the audio is a little tinny and the picture is maybe a little flat? Also editing this one caused my computer to crash about fifty times... I'm working on it! We'll get back to good quality videos soon!

Presented by TheMarsGeneration.org

What are the Worst Space Movies Ever?

In the ninth episode of Season Two of #AskAbby, please join aspiring astronaut, Abby Harrison AKA ‘Astronaut Abby’ as she answers the question, “What are the worst space movies ever?” You’re a busy person, why waste time watching an awful film (except for a good laugh that is)? From complete and utter scientific inaccuracy to poor storytelling, corny dialogue, bad acting, and cringe-worthy special effects, these films really miss their mark. Join Abby as she countdowns the Top 5 Space Films to avoid in this episode of the Mars Generation’s Space and Science Show!

Films range from Disney flops to Michael Bay meets sci-fi to even an Oscar-winner. The discussion will be on: How scientifically inaccurate are these films? What would actually happen in the film if it followed science? Which director thought their film was so bad they even APOLOGIZED for making it? Plus, which films got the worst ratings on Rotten Tomatoes? Yes, they really can go THAT low.

What Science Was Actually Done on the Moon? | Apollo

Apollo 14 conducted more scientific exploration of the Moon than any mission before it, and discoveries from the trip would eventually shape a new understanding of our celestial neighbor.

Check out the entire Apollo series here!:

Apollo 14 Demonstrated Spaceflight Challenges Are Solvable

“When Apollo 14 touched down on the moon on Feb. 5, 1971, it was more than a 240,000-mile trip – it was a hard-fought return to flight for NASA's Apollo Program and America's first person in space.”

Apollo 14: 'Rookie' Crew and a Famous Golf Ball

“Today, many people best remember this mission as the one where an astronaut hit golf balls on the moon, but the crew also had several other adventures.”

The 8 weirdest things we've left on the moon

“Humans tend to leave junk wherever we go. The moon is no exception. It's estimated that we've left nearly 400,000 pounds of stuff on the moon over the course of dozens of human and uncrewed missions.”

____________________

The path to the moon traced a dangerous line of risk and reward. In a race against time, the Apollo Program challenged our scientific capabilities and redefined the boundaries of humanity. To celebrate NASA’s 60 years of exploration, Seeker is going back in time to relive each Apollo mission, taking viewers on a ride to an entirely new world.

Seeker explains every aspect of our world through a lens of science, inspiring a new generation of curious minds who want to know how today’s discoveries in science, math, engineering and technology are impacting our lives and shaping our future. Our stories parse meaning from the noise in a world of rapidly changing information.

Peeking Inside a Messy Lunar Module

REBOOT! The Museum of Flight in Seattle asked to include my old video on this in their new Apollo exhibit, and when I looked at it I decided it was too embarrassing. So I redid the video, and added onboard audio! And am happy with the outcome so decided to take the old one down and put this one up instead. Enjoy! (Also, forgot to add an onscreen edit: I KNOW APOLLO 10'S LM IS IN SOLAR ORBIT AND APOLLO 9 OBVIOUSLY DIDN'T GO TO THE MOON!)
