Under the Iron Sky

August 12, 2009

IRON SKY

Lyrics: Joonas Naskali

Now that you have gone away,
I feel so cold, why did I stay?
Remember, I’ll remember your face so pale,
when you left me on that gloomy day…

Time goes by, memories are mine,
Still waiting for the moment I’ll see you again.
Times are changing, memories are fading,
I’m waiting for another chance,
to tell you belong to me.

One day,
I know we’ll meet again…
Under the Iron Sky.

Towards the end of World War II the staff of SS officer Hans Kammler made a significant breakthrough in anti-gravity.

From a secret base built in the Antarctic, the first Nazi spaceships were launched in late ‘45 to found the military base Schwarze Sonne (Black Sun) on the dark side of the Moon.

Iron Sky is a science fiction comedy being produced by Energia Productions, Blind Spot Pictures and Cinet and co-produced by 27 Films. At the moment, the team is finalizing the script, working to gather a top-notch production team, and are looking for second-round financing.

The makers of Iron Sky seem to be off to an excellent start with a teaser that is sinister and, dare I say it, powerful. It’s a Finnish feature length dark comedy from the creators of Star Wreck. The estimated time of release is 2011.

My Moon

August 11, 2009

The Sun happens to be 400 times the Moon’s diameter, and 400 times as far away. That coincidence means the Sun and Moon appear to be the same size when viewed from Earth. A total solar eclipse, in which the Moon is between the Earth and Sun, blocks the bright light from the Sun’s photosphere, allowing us to see the faint glow from the corona, the Sun’s outer atmosphere.
