**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...**

Apollo's 50th Anniversary: How to land on the moon back then vs now.

Apollo 11 landed on the moon on July 20th 1969. Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, made history and inspired humanity. But 50 years later, humans have not been on the moon for the last 47 years. Why is this so? In this video I talk about the 1969 landings and what the prospects we have of doing it again

Season 2, Episode 9 of The Space and Science Show #AskAbby series
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.

Tune in on Tuesdays for new releases of The Space and Science Show #AskAbby series! To submit a question to #AskAbby go to ►
