worlds: a mission of discovery by alec gillis.

wow. sort of like the photographs navidson would have taken, had be been part of the first manned mission to habitable worlds. there is a certain sort of something going on, besides the obvious work that went in to the production of the images. & beyond the sort of "tug at the heartstrings" tale associated with them. something that makes the bad bits of the cgi the sort of thing you ignore in favor of the good parts. which really is what you should be going for with special effects. maybe it is the premise, that this is a photo essay about this mission-- that is a very engaging sort of hook. this sure is pretty, above all. oh, & the two aliens doing it is pretty hilariously gross. gross out!
