The New Hollywood Moneymakers--Astrophysicists

Republibot 4.0's picture

A friend of mine alerted me to this bit of research which claims that Hollywood can be guaranteed blockbusters as long as they include an astronomer or an astrophysicist in the script.  Apparently, every film that's ever had an astrophysicist as a character has done really well at the box office.

And the piece is written by an actual astromoner, too!
