I enjoyed the movie Avatar and I look forward to seeing the sequel, but until reading the first article for this week’s Sci Friday links I had no idea James Cameron was such an interesting man. He’s done a great deal more than direct movies. He’s helped invent new cameras, new submarines, and new spacecraft. At one time, he tried to get 3D cameras into space and expressed interest in going to space himself to make a movie. That’s one movie I’d definitely go see.
