"Interstellar": A (Missed) Opportunity for NASA to be Relevant?

"We used to look up in the sky and wonder - at our place in the stars. Now we just look down and worry about our place in the dirt."

Keith's note: What will NASA do in terms of public outreach when "Interstellar" is released? They dropped the ball when it came to "Avatar" and the producers of "Gravity" never bothered to seek out NASA's help. This film is expected to touch deeply upon themes that point to the core of what NASA does - and will do so in a manner that leaps beyond the usual preaching to the choir that NASA does inside its own self-reinforcing echo chamber.

What (if anything) do you think NASA should do?

Oh yes, NASA is funding a warp drive project. But they do not want to talk about it.

Why? What are they afraid of?

The researcher behind all of this is Harold G. White. According to people.nasa.gov here is how you contact him:email: harold.white-1@nasa.gov Phone: 281.482.0178
