Heavenly Body of the Week: Planet Mann

The Oscar nominations were announced yesterday, and in amongst those nominations was a film called Interstellar. It only received a handful of technical nods, after falling from its sure fire Best Picture buzz earlier in the awards season. Granted, I did not find the film all that great. In fact, I found it kind of silly and ridiculous. The one thing it did have going for it, was the visual aspect of things, which is why I have no qualms about its few tech nominations. Anyway, this particular heavenly body, the Planet Mann, named after the astronaut who discovered it, is one of three possible planets whereupon the human race can repopulate in the film. You know, Earthly environmental disaster scenario, and all that. Unfortunately, the Planet Man is an ice planet, and therefore not too habitable to that aforementioned human race. But hey, the movie kinda sucked (even it it was a Chris Nolan film), so perhaps the human race doesn't deserve to be saved. Wait, what? Yeah, that's probably a bit harsh. Anyway, enjoy the planet, and I'll see ya'll again next week with a brand new heavenly body.

That's it gang. See ya 'round the web.
