Tim Peake How to be an Astronaut

james90 rated

It was really good to learn about what really goes into being an Astronaut. All we see is the spectacular launch and them fooling around on the ISS, seldom do we know how much training and dedication went into preparing for that mission and the science that happens on the space station.

Good video for those wanting to learn more about space travel.

Horizon: How to Build a Time Machine

john rated

The BBC is back on form with this science documentary. Some of the concepts of time travel that are explored in the documentary are relatively basic and have been explored in other Horizon programs, however, many new ways to think about time were also presented.

My one quarrel with the film is the dig at Donald Trump, which sullied some of the really good scientific theories. One interviewee said, "you couldn't go back in time a kill a young Donald Trump". Yes, this was actually said in a science documentary. Frankly, this comment should have never made into the final cut. Would the BBC have allowed the same thing to be said about Hillary Clinton? I doubt it.
