The most famous treasure hunter of all time is of course, Indiana Jones. He’s raced across our screens in pursuit of treasure (and to save the day!) with his fedora, bullwhip and fear of snakes. I read a super fun fact about Raiders of the Lost Ark the other day: that R2D2 and C3PO appear […]

Do you know what awesome sci-fi movie (and accompanying TV series DVDs) resides on the International Space Station? Serenity! I love Joss Whedon’s Firefly and I think it’s pretty cool to imagine real-life astronauts kicking back watching Captain Mal and his gang on their adventures. I enjoyed Dianne’s post on SF in 2014. There are […]

The Hyperloop will take you from San Francisco to LA in 30 mins. You’ll travel through a tube on a cushion of air. It’s faster […]
