2010 - The Year We Make Contact?
Twenty five years ago, the poster for the 1984 film, 2010 (based on the novel, 2010: Odyssey Two, by Arthur C. Clarke), advised cinema goers that "[i]n the very near future a small group of Americans and Russians set out on the greatest adventure of them all . . . to see if there is life beyond the stars." That "very near future" has now arrived. What's in store for us this year?
Thirty-something suffering from nostalgia but, thankfully, not from bouts of irony. Here, I will revisit artifacts of popular culture not sufficiently explored elsewhere, though I may perhaps stray from that mission at times.
