Good News/Bad News

Science News This Week:  Andrew Rushby and his team of scientists at the University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom stated in an article published in "Astrobiology" that Earth will eventually drift into a "hot zone". 

Water is the key to sustaining life in habitable zones.  Currently, Earth is at the right distance from our star, namely the sun, for liquid water.  However, if Earth drifted any closer to the sun, the oceans would evaporate and life would cease to thrive.  Rushby says that is exactly what WILL happen.  That's the bad news.  The good news is that it wouldn't happen for another 1.75 billion years.  Of course, there is always the possibility of another doomsday scenario happening prior to that.......things like a nuclear holocaust happening on the planet, or we're hit by an asteroid...

.......or Celine Dion puts out another CD.

So, the bad news is the world will end in 1.75 billion years from now.  The good news is that means I WILL have enough time to pay off my mortgage.

Today's More's Mystery

December 18, 2014.......Looking for a classic movie.....

1.  The original version of this movie came out in the mid-1940s.

2.  It was nominated for 4 Academy Awards and won 3 of them.

3.  The movie featured a child star who's career continued through her adulthood until she died in the early 80s under mysterious circumstances.

Answer:  Miracle On 34th Street

The film won Academy Awards for Best Actory in a Supporting Role (Edmund Gwenn), Best Writing Original Story and Best Writing, Screenplay.  It was also nominated for Best Picture, losing to "Gentlemam's Agreement".

Natalie Wood was the child star of the movie.  During the making of her last film, "Brainstorm", she drowned while on a weekend boat trip to Santa Catalina Island, California with her husband, Robert Wagner, actor Christopher Walken and the boat's captain, Dennis Davern.  Many facts surrounding her drowning are unknown because no one admitted seeing how she entered the water.
