Filmmaker's toolkit. Lightsaber to go into space

Just a couple of quick items here. Been pretty busy around here of late.

First off, check out this Film maker's Toolkit using WEB 2.0 HERE. This is a really nice site that has some great ideas (i.e. location scouting with Microsoft Live Local sat pics and Google Earth). I actually used NASA's World Wind to scout locations for The Aquarium. Lots of other cool tricks here as well.

In other news, NASA is sending Luke Skywalker's original Lightsaber prop into space on the shuttle to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars. I love this kind of stuff. I love how NASA embraces science fiction and the pop culture surrounding it and acknowledging the influence of these phenomenon on the space program. Check it out HERE.
