The past, present and future of the CubeSat microsatellite technology is explored, with a particular emphasis upon the efforts of venturing beyond our own world by the Center for Advanced Energy Studies by Idaho National Laboratory.
The story revolves around the passengers of a yachting trip in the Atlantic Ocean who, when struck by mysterious weather conditions, jump to another ship only to experience greater havoc on the open seas.
Six different people, each from a very different walk of life, awaken to find themselves inside a giant cube with thousands of possible rooms. Each has a skill that becomes clear when they must band together to get out: a cop, a math whiz, a building designer, a doctor, an escape master, and a disabled man. Each plays a part in their thrilling quest to find answers as to why they've been imprisoned. Written by
One of the earlier drafts of the script had the characters finding bizarre alien food. The idea was subsequently lost after it gave too clear a definition as to who was responsible for the cube. See more »
When Leaven first checks the rooms' set of numbers for primes, she has to think for a few seconds for each set. The first set of numbers she checks ends in 5; the second set ends in 2. Numbers ending in 2 or 5 (other than 2 and 5 themselves) by definition cannot be prime. Someone proficient at math, as Leaven is, wouldn't need to think about the numbers; she'd register they were multiples of 2 and 5 and move straight to the last number. See more »
Cube is a movie that explores human nature and our instinctive urges for survival vs our humanitarianism. Not a new concept, I know, however this movie does it in style, with a plot so simple that it could only be the work of a conceptual genius. I don't intend to give too much away, as the power of the film lies in it's mystery, but I will say that this movie could almost be classified as disturbing, not due to its content, but rather the thoughts that it instills in the audience. I found myself rather shaken as I left the cinema, feeling as though I had been exposed to an ugly, hidden side of humanity and society. Don't get me wrong, this movie is definitely worth seeing, I would even be so bold as to say that it must be seen! I must admit that there are few movies I have seen that have had such a profound affect on me, and I don't think I am alone in my feelings.
