Hollywood, Here I Come

That Ph.D. thing is already coming in handy. I get to be a scientific research consultant for a major motion picture*.

(*I need to check the non-disclosure agreement before I advertise what it is. It's probably fine, but just in case.)

Yessir! Although the potential for evil is great. I don't know the plot of the movie yet, but apparently the timeline goes from the big bang up 'til the end of the universe or something. The filmmakers are very concerned about scientific accuracy, soooo... if I was a real jerk, I would give them bad information ("Yes, I swear, the universe is going to end in 2012! The movie has to end in 2012!")

Heh! Remember though, with great power come great responsibility!

How did you end up doing this?

The movie is being filmed in my area, so the production company came to the university and approached many different departments looking for experts in a broad range of scientific fields. I got the astronomy gig, along with a couple of grads.

You mean all those hotties in the white lab coats in the Bond movies actually have real PhDs? Who knew?
