Geology
31 March 2012 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This episode had a lot of humor, and I found it amazing that they trained in the ways they did to identify rocks. I took a geology class in college, and found the subject fascinating. To get pilots excited about rocks seemed to be a unique challenge that they captured well in the film.

It was humorous to see the passionate science geeks argue about where to land the ship on the moon, and I do emphasize 'passionate'. You could tell that the story caught the excitement that these people had for their project. They wanted to do this more than anything in the whole world. It compels me to find such projects myself (not going to the moon, of course), but projects that you can soak your entire life into with a team and family.
