NASA has started an ambitious experiment aimed at better understanding the challenges of extreme isolation that will confront the first travelers to the Red Planet.
Yesterday, my wife emailed me about the fact that, for (supposedly?) the first time ever, there is a contest for a walk-on role in the next Star Trek movie. She included the link to the website to sign up.
I’m telling you about it because, quite bluntly, I won’t enter. It wouldn’t make any sense for me to try, because even if I won I couldn’t accept – part of the prize is round-trip airfare to Vancouver, Canada, for the filming. Until the USA eliminates the TSA, I will never again get on a commercial plane.
So, if you are interested in a movie role, here is your chance. Break a leg!
