Alice Eve may play a scientist in Star Trek Into Darkness, but she's a big believer that we're not alone in the universe. Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live recently to promote the sci-fi sequel, the British actress recalled for the funnyman the experience she, fellow cast members Chris Pine and John Cho and Star Trek director J.J. Abrams had when they participated in a Skype chat with astronauts aboard the International Space Station. Little did Eve realize the "cool" conversation would lead to some startling revelations about the possibility of humanity having had a close encounter! "J.J….said he sat next to an astronaut once who had told him that he had seen 'forms or shapes' »
Alice Eve knows aliens, or at least she does in her movies. The British actress has dealt with the topic of extra-terrestrial life quite a bit, as she's appeared in both "Star Trek Into Darkness" and "Men In Black 3," which is fitting since she believes we're not alone.
During a recent appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," the 31-year-old spoke of a Skype chat she took part in alongside "Star Trek" director J.J. Abrams and co-stars Chris Pine and John Cho, as well as the astronauts aboard the International Space Station. The actress told Kimmel it was a fascinating experience, but she isn't convinced that Nasa has been honest with the public about the existence of alien life.
"That was definitely the coolest thing we've done. I mean, we've shared the movie with countries around the world, but we got to Skype ... with the guy in a space station. And »

It may seem that I'm diggin' in the dirt. Gettin' back to my punk rock roots. Well, some of my favorite new music does seem a wee bit primal, oui? And some of it is even out this world. But all of this music is party playlist-worthy for any weekend getaway. Proceed with caution....
"Back to the Way I Was" Emily Bell: In Technicolor (One-Eyed George)
Love the retro-girl bop rockabilly trip of this Austin-based ginger-haired flamethrower. She's got plenty of sass, snarl, and sex appeal. And her roots-rockin' band rips it up all the while she shakes and struts her stuff. This will keep any party swingin' all night long. Don't move your lips, just shake those hips....
"Signal 30" Public Service Broadcasting: Inform - Educate - Entertain (Test Card)
Driving, Relentless. Dangerous. Watch out for that speeding vehicle! Throbbing bass, guitar, and drums, played live. Signal 30 was truly a 1959 U. »

Nasa is routinely thought of as the our precursor to the fictional Starfleet Academy, and recently, astronauts interacted with “Star Trek Into Darkness” stars to discuss the intersection between “Star Trek” and Nasa’s current programs. Astronaut Chris Cassidy on the International Space Station and astronauts Michael Fincke and Kjell Lindgren connected with writer/producer Damon Lindelof and stars Chris Pine, Alice Eve and John Cho through Google+ to talk about how “Star Trek” and Nasa are connected along with what happens in zero gravity, if any of the actors would want to go into space, which captain is Eve’s favorite and more. We’ve got the highlights embedded below, but if you [ Read More ]

The three astronauts were offered a sneak peak of "Star Trek Into Darkness" days before it opens Thursday on Earth, seeing it not in 3-D, but Zero-g.
Nasa spokesman Kelly Humphries said the movie was beamed up to the outpost Monday and the two Russians and American on board had a day off Tuesday. That gave them a chance to view it on their laptops. It's unclear if they watched it.

Washington (AP) — The crew of the International Space Station is boldly going where no one has gone before — to see the new "Star Trek" film.

“Far Above The World…”
For the past five months social media users have been given a new look at life in space, and an unparalleled view of the Earth courtesy of Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, Commander onboard the International Space Station. He has granted followers of his Twitter, Youtube, Tumblr and the like – everything from daily life, to what happens when you cry in the zero gravity of space.
For many though it was his high quality photographs of our fragile planet, taken from orbit but in astonishing detail, that brought Hadfield to their attention, complete with his unwavering view that there are no borders in space. Regardless of their location his pictures were accompanied by a description of where each of “us” as human beings live, rather than individual nations. A perspective that perhaps only those who serve on an international project orbiting the earth every 93 minutes can truly appreciate. »

Luke Owen looks at Doomsday #1...
The Earth may have dodged a bullet on 12/21/2012, but there are worse things in store for our little blue planet. Seven adventurers aboard the International Space Station watch in horror as most of the world is decimated by a monster solar flare. And their only choice is to return to the surface, and face whatever awaits them there!
Coming off from The High Ways, John Byrne returns us to space (kind of) with his new series Doomsday which documents the end of the world as its destroyed by a solar flare. It’s a good opening issue for an interesting story, but there something isn’t quite right.
When writing The High Ways, Bryne said that he was inspired by the likes of Dan Dare and other 50s sci-fi serials and the artwork he used reflected this style, which complimented the story well. In Doomsday #1 however, »
There are those who boldly go where none have gone before on movie screens and those who do it in real life; you can chat with both during a Google+ Hangout with the cast and crew of Star Trek Into Darkness, plus real astronauts from Nasa. Director J.J. Abrams, writer Damon Lindelof and stars Chris Pine, Alice Eve and John Cho will join Chris Cassidy, who is currently on the International Space Station, and Earth-bound astronauts Michael Fincke and Kjell Lindgren to talk Star Trek fiction and Nasa fact. More importantly, this is your chance to ask questions of both sets of space adventurers! (Just don't ask what happens when you wring out a washcloth in zero gravity. It's been done.) Hit the jump for all the details. Star Trek Into Darkness also stars Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana,Benedict Cumberbatch, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin and Bruce Greenwood and opens in IMAX 3D tomorrow, »

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield spent almost five months aboard the International Space Station, during which he gained a substantial social media following. Hadfield's pithy tweets and informational YouTube videos have made his a cult hero on the Internet (a title helped on by his epic caterpillar moustache). Hadfield has safely returned to Earth, but before he departed the Iss, he gave the Internet a treat in the form of a super cool cover of David Bowie's 'Space Oddity'. The cover features Hadfield singing and playing guitar in zero gravity, and it's amazingly cool because, well, space. I also have to applaud Hadfield for choosing a song about an astronaut who fails his mission and floats away to die. I think as an astronaut that would freak me out a bit. Hatfield's unique musical effort has been viewed almost four million times on his YouTube channel, which now sports over »

There are lots of great music videos out there, but very few of them make history. One video released on YouTube on Sunday (May 12), however, marks a huge first for mankind. Astronaut Chris Hadfield recorded his version of David Bowie's song, "Space Oddity" -- while about the International Space Station.
This may just be the first music video ever recorded in space.
Hadfield, a Canadian astronaut who has gained huge online fame for his regular tweets and other uses of social media, had been in space for almost five months (since December 19, 2012) when he decided to sing Bowie for the camera. The low-budget bit of musical history was the astronaut's last hurrah -- Commander Hadfield returned to Earth via a Russian capsule on Monday (May 13).
What's in the five-minute video? Hadfield sings and stars in this version of the Bowie song, floating around the station and changing a few »
I struggled with posting this because it's not movie-related (or even entertainment-related) and it seems like a weird way to use HitFix resources, but the more I thought about it, the more I couldn't really resist. After all, "Star Trek Into Darkness" is set to hit theaters on Friday and capture the imaginations of space freaks the world over, while at the same time, we have the homecoming of Commander Chris Hadfield and company from a few months' stint on the International Space Station -- real-life heroes of the cosmos. And Hadfield in particular has been doing what I think is »

Washington, May 14 (Ians/Ria Novosti) Canadian astronaut and outgoing International Space Station Commander Chris Hadfield has recorded the first music video in space while floating in zero gravity, strumming an acoustic guitar and crooning his own rendition of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" as a special farewell before heading back to Earth.
The lyrics - tweaked a bit here and there - are particularly fitting:
"Ground control to Major Tom
Lock your Soyuz hatch and put your helmet on
Ground control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Detach from station and may God's love be with you"
Hadfield launched from Kazakhstan as part of Expedition 35 Dec 19, 2012, and took command. »

This is Commander Chris Hadfield, a Canadian astronaut who's been chilling up in the International Space Station for the last five months. His mission ends tonight. Here's the message that accompanied his video from Twitter, if, you know, the awesome cover wasn't message enough: "With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here’s Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World." ... Don't even say you didn't clap at the bridge. Don't even. Safe travels, Commander Hadfield. You're completely rad! --Sarah Taylor Read more »

Astronaut Chris Hadfield has become something of a cult hero in the five months that he’s served as the Commander of the International Space Station on Expedition 35. [More after the jump...] His frequent tweets (@Cmdr_Hadfield), the breathtaking photos of earth he’s posted, and even his love of music had endeared the Canadian astronaut to many. But as he prepares to leave the Space Station today, yesterday he left all of us with a parting gift that only made him more of a cosmic superstar. On Sunday, shortly after he’d handed over the command of the Iss to Astronaut Pavel Vidograv, »
Not many artists can make a music video that's literally out of this world. But astronaut Chris Hadfield did just that—awesomely so—with his revised cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity." Hadfield, who is the first Canadian astronaut to walk in space, recorded his vocals and acoustic guitar in the International Space Station. In the video, he embraces his gravity-free environment and literally floats through the space station singing and strumming his guitar. Bowie himself was impressed with the cover, posting a photo and link to Hadfield's video on Facebook. "Chris Hadfield Sings Space Oddity In Space!" the musician exclaimed." It's possibly the most poignant »
In space, no one can hear you sing. Well, unless you record yourself singing there, then post that video on YouTube.
Case in point: Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield’s incredible, anti-gravity rendition of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” an awesome song made even more awesome by the fact that this dude is actually singing it in space. The commander, who’s currently wrapping up a five-month stay in the International Space Station, uploaded the clip yesterday; it’s already racked up over 1 million views.
And, for the record, Bowie also thinks the music video is pretty neat.
Chris Hadfield Sings Space Oddity In Space! »

Pop music went literal this weekend, when "Space Oddity" -- Chris Hadfield edition -- made its way from the International Space Station to Earth. The veteran astronaut, who departs from Iss on Monday, recorded a cover that's now being touted as the first music video ever recorded in space.
The original song comes off the singer's eponymous 1969 album, which is also known as "Space Oddity."
Bowie recently released the video for "The Next Day" and quickly drew the ire of organizations such as the Catholic League. The visuals feature the "Ziggy Stardust" singer playing parlor entertainment in a church brothel frequented by a bishop (Gary Oldman). Marion Cotillard plays a prostitute suffering from stigmata.

According to one version of history, Stanley Kubrick faked the 1969 Moon landings. The master of cinema used all the camera trickery and miniature effects he perfected in 1968's 2001: A Space Odyssey, the story goes, to fool billions of people into thinking they'd seen Neil Armstrong hop about on the lunar surface, when actually he was in a studio somewhere on Earth.
Although this theory has been comprehensively debunked (there's plenty of proof that Armstrong and other astronauts really did hop about on the Moon), that such a theory could even be taken seriously in the first place is a testament to the groundbreaking special effects work Stanley Kubrick and Douglas Trumbull brought to A Space Odyssey.
I mention this because the »
