I could see Sir Sean Connery as Dr. Morbius, maybe Anne Hathaway as Alta, but NEVER Tom Cruise as Commander Adams. He's way to egotistical!

That's mutually contradictory. If an object in orbit slows down, its orbital ra ...

A very large moon, like the one shown above, in a close orbit to the primary would move very quickly across the sky. Even the Martian moons, which are smaller but close to the planet, move quite swift ...

I maintain that the DC stations convert each man into energy, thereby make him unaffected by the titanic force of deceleration. The opposing camp in this debate felt that the glowing light that envel ...
