Brad Pitt dials NASA astronaut and enquires about Chandrayaan 2

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Brad Pitt on Monday night (September 16) made a call to his friend, American astronaut Nick Hague at the International Space Station (ISS) enquiring about the Indian moon lander – Chandrayaan 2 while asking about what it’s like to live and work aboard the Space Station. 

 The twenty-minute video call was broadcast on NASA TV and was a part of Brad Pitt’s upcoming movie Ad Astra promotion tour. Brad Pitt’s upcoming movie Ad Astra is based on an astronaut who is on a deadly mission and is at the edge of the solar system.

Amongst the many questions, Pitt also asked if the astronauts up there at the station were able to watch the landing of Indian Moon lander – Chandrayaan 2. To which Hague replied, “No, unfortunately … I along with the rest of the crew had to just follow the news report…”

Asked about the working schedule abroad in the ISS, Hague said that the astronauts work from 7:30 in the morning to 7:30 at night. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_raw_html]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[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The actor also asked about his movie Zero-G, to which astronaut Hague replied, “It was really good, depictions, and the settings, all you managed for the movie looks somewhat similar to my settings around here.”

However, Pitt humorously said the movie’s spaceship “was a bit cleaner than the station” and they both had a hearty laugh at that. 

“But now I have calluses across the top of my foot, around my big toe, because I’m constantly hanging on things with my big toe,” he added. “That’s incredible to see,” said Pitt, who held the 20-minute video call via split-screen from NASA’s Washington headquarters.

Finally, the actor called on Hague’s extensive expertise to answer his last question: “Who was more believable, Clooney (in the movie “Gravity”) or Pitt?” “You were,” Hague said, “Absolutely.”

The conversation ended with both the heroes thanking each other for their contributions in their own fields. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Death embraces Stephen Hawking, visionary scientist who never believed in afterlife

Stephen Hawking the legendary scientist and theoretical physicist would be celebrating his 80th birth anniversary. To mark the special day, search engine company Google paid tribute to the English cosmologist and author with a two and half minutes long animated video on their homepage.

Born in Oxford, England, Stephen Hawking was fascinated by the universe from a very young age. However, Hawking was diagnosed with a rare disease named neurodegenerative when he was just 21 years old. The disease slowly forced him to sit on a wheelchair. As the time passed, he started losing his voice and after a while he lost his speech. Therefore, he started to communicate through a speech generating device, which was invented by himself. Google describes the legendary scientist as ‘one of history’s most influential scientific minds’.

Hawking is mainly known for his theories on black holes. He revolutionized the modern physics with his theories on origins and mechanics of the universe. His intellectual and curiosity about new things, earned him a nickname Einstein.

In 1965, Hawking defended his PhD thesis on ‘Properties of Expanding Universe’ at the Cambridge University. The revolutionary theory presented that space and time originated from a singularity.

Here are some of the best quotes by Stephen Hawking

  1. One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.
  2. Quiet people have the loudest minds.
  3. Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.
  4. The victim should have the right to end his life, if he wants. But I think it would be a great mistake. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there’s life, there is hope.
