A PacSci Two-fer

The Pacific Science Center has not one, but two things of interest. Having only been to the planetarium for a laser show, it'll be nice to have an opportunity to see a little more of what they have to offer.

Thing One:
The current Game On! exhibit (around until August 31) is centered around using video games as a means to introduce scientific concepts. It's smart to pull people in with the familiar, but it seems like this exhibit doesn't forget to keep it fun, providing lots of hands-on activities while sharing how different facets of science and culture come together to make video games and its attendant industry. Sounds like a good time.

Thing Two:
While spanning_time is still waiting for the release of Snakes on a Plane, there are other movies that are helping to ease the wait. One such movie is Superman Returns, which opens next week. After a long hiatus (and the death of Christopher Reeve, the actor that ebodied the Superman role in its Eighties incarnation), the Superman franchise is making its return next week. Topping even a showing at Cinerama, the Boeing IMAX theater is showing a special 3-D version of the movie, which even includes a sneak preview. Buzz on the movie is universally positive, so it should be worthy of your time, and the IMAXiness would seem fitting for this type of blockbuster.


  • Brilliant! I'm takin' my lady to Game On 'cause she needs some video game educatin'.

    I almost never post on here but I want you to know that I read everything and consider your work incredibly helpful to my social calendar. I should actually start submitting cool Seattle stuff to you to help out.
