Memory: The Origins of Alien

   2019    Art
See how one of the most terrifying movies of all time came to life 40 years ago and the untold origin story behind Ridley Scott's Alien - rooted in Greek and Egyptian mythologies, underground comics, the art of Francis Bacon, and the dark visions of Dan O'Bannon and H.R. Giger. This film is a contemplation on the symbiotic collaborative process of movie-making, the power of myth, and our universal fears.
'Memory: The Origins of Alien' unearths the story behind this cinematic masterpiece, and reveals a treasure trove of never-before-seen materials including original story notes, rejected designs and storyboards, exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, and Dan O'Bannon's original 29 page script from 1971, titled Memory.

Pluto: Back From the Dead

   2020    Science
The incredible story of how Pluto has been propelled from an unremarkable ball of ice on the edge of the solar system to a world of unimaginable complexity - where some form of alien life might exist.
New discoveries from the edge of the solar system are transforming what is known about Pluto, thanks to the New Horizons space probe that took the first-ever close up images of the planet. Pluto was once thought to be geologically dead, but the pictures revealed it to be an active world of stunning complexity, with mountains carved from ice, a nitrogen glacier that appeared to be moving and a recently active volcano, with data sent back lead some scientists to speculate that there may even be life on Pluto today.
