  • "This paper presents results from a study into the production design of SF films, with special focus on the psychological challenges of extended spaceflight. The aim was to provide preliminary insight into the potential validity and application of SF film design in the context of scenario building for space, in particular at pre-phase-A stage of the system development process. The study consisted of two parts: the focus of the first was the systematic identification of a relevant set of SF productions and the description of products, environments and interactions portrayed in the films according to habitability criteria set out in the literature. The second part involved an illustrative case study reconstructing, from previously unpublished archive material, the main conceptualisation stages of the design of the food dispensing system in one particular film from the sample set, Stanley Kubrick‚Äôs 2001: A Space Odyssey."

I promise you that. Somebody in your classroom uses a service that you can't detect, that you can't defend against, that you may not even know exists."
