I like it when SciFi fiction becomes reality and a recent article got me to thinling about a movie from years gone by….many people probably do not remember this film…..”Journey To The Far Side Of The Sun”…..
A quick run down……
A planet is discovered in the same orbit as Earth’s but is located on the exact opposite side of the sun, making it not visible from Earth. The European Space Exploration Council decide to send American astronaut Glenn Ross and British scientist John Kane via spaceship to explore the other planet. After a disastrous crash-landing Ross awakes to learn that Kane lies near death and that they apparently have returned to Earth, as evidenced by the presence of the Council director and his staff. Released to the custody of his wife, he soon learns things are not as they seem.
In case you are interested in the movie…..
Now the article that made me think about this old movie…..it seems scientist want to open a portal to a parallel universe……does that sound familiar? “Sliders” maybe?
Seriously this is not a joke or some trailer for a new SciFi movie……
Could 2019 be the year humans open the first portal to a shadowy dimension which mirrors our own world?
Scientists in Oak Ridge National Laboratory in eastern Tennessee hope so, and have completed building equipment they are to test this summer which may allow us the first glimpse of a parallel universe which could be identical in many ways to our own, with mirror particles, mirror planets and possibly even mirror life.
That is according to Leah Broussard, the physicist behind the project, who described the attempt to reveal a hidden shadow world as “pretty wacky” in an interview with NBC last week.
The discovery of a concealed mirror world may sound like science fiction from the Stranger Things series, but it has been repeatedly suggested by physicists as a tempting means of explaining anomalous results. However, as yet, hard evidence such a realm exists has refused to manifest itself.
See watching SciFi all those years is finally paying off….
Sunday is hot and I want cool weather….Pete I am jealous…LOL
