Orson Welles Hosted a NASA Documentary About Aliens in the '70s and It Is Amazing
It is damn near impossible to explain the joy that comes from watching Who’s Out There, a documentary on aliens made by NASA in 1975 starring real scientists, regular people, and then Orson Welles, pontificating into the camera. I cannot emphasize this enough: Spend half an hour watching this.

Analog Science Fiction and Fact is the longest running continuously published science fiction magazine. The magazine began in 1930 as the famous pulp Astounding Stories. It underwent several name changes over the years; during the 1960′s it’s name was changed to Analog Science Fact & Fiction, and in 1992 it’s name shifted to it’s current iteration: Analog Science Fiction and Fact. This publication has survived through decades of changing tastes, cultural climates, and economies.  Born in the golden age of the pulps, it carried on through the decline of pulp fiction and the rise of digest/paperback formats, and is still going strong today. Analog Science Fiction and Fact published issue no. 1,000 in June of this year.
