Quote. . . the potential of this film was, in my view, entirely wasted.
Quote from: sboerner on December 05, 2019, 09:22:29 pmSadly, I agree, but I also understand how the story could be meaningful to someone with a similar family experience.
Quote from: sboerner on December 05, 2019, 09:22:29 pm...Ariel DK, have you seen Interstellar? It is similar in some superficial ways but IMHO it is a much superior film, and it packs a surprisingly emotional punch.Arthur C. Clark "invented" the space elevator and described it in some detail 40 years ago in The Fountains of Paradise.
QuoteUnfortunately i know about the work of Arthur C. Clark, but i never read Fountains of Paradise. I'm very related with space elevator, indeed, i'm a reader from ISEC
