Where did I see that old man in space with the donut?

[Old-man-space-donut-filter] I remember seeing a music video (I think linked off a mefi post) that featured an old man in a space ship and a donut with sprinkles. It was very surreal. What was it?

Where can I find accurate info on the types of vehicles currently being considered for future human exploration of the Martian landscape?

SpaceArtFilter: Where have all the rockets gone?

So I'm watching the new Nasa documentary on Discovery and it prompted me to renew my search for rocket art. The issue is that if there is such a thing its not easy to find. I'm looking for prints of old rockets/spacecraft in the vein of this. Doesn't necessarily have to be photographic, but at least photo realistic. Anyone have any ideas of where to look? Bonus points if anyone knows of small scale desktop models of the old school rockets (Atlas, Jupiter, Titan, Redstone).

Appealing, school-appropriate video game clip?

I would like to find a link for a short video clip of a video game that meets certain criteria. It will go into a presentation to elementary school teachers, as a quick backdrop to a point about interactive games that will be used in school, and that will be fun while challenging kids to think and learn. (It won't itself BE that game; it just has to plausibly look the part.) It needs to have some connection to an outer space theme. [more inside]

Trying to find a Mech Warrior Cartoon from the 80s

I am looking for a cartoon from the 80s that I can't remember the name of. It had an aircraft carrier in space that sent jets down to earth. There was even an old school Captain that steered the space carrier.The pilots could transform them into a "mech warrior" of sorts. It wasn't Transformers that I am sure of. They were protecting us from something that came from space. There was also a sub-plot/love story as some of the pilots hung out/dated. The cartoon was definitely Japanese. [more inside]

The mimetic and narrative capacities of artefacts

I am interested in the mimetic and narrative capacities of artefacts, how cultural remnants transmit information through time and how meaning is translated once an artefact is re-appropriated or examined from a new perspective. I have several avenues of study at the moment (a list in extended explanation), but would like some more ideas. Areas of critical theory, linguistics, evolutionary psychology and poetics are all relevant. [more inside]

How did Kubrick do it?

How did Kubrick do it? There's a scene in "2001 A Space Odyssey" that has always fascinated and puzzled me. It's the scene on a spaceship in which a character is walking down a circular corridor, moving away from the camera. At the end of the corridor is a rotating ring. When the character reaches the ring she starts walking around it, up the wall. Obviously the camera is linked to that far rotating ring, but the transition between the near corridor and the far ring is absolutely seamless. [more inside]
