Since a very long time, the entertainment industry has been playing a major role in getting people close to Science, mainly through Sci-fi flicks and TV shows. However, apart from the Sci-fi subjects, there have been a lot of movies based on the true events of Scientists, Engineers or other reputed personalities that have left a big impact on the audience. Such creations not only impart knowledge but also inspire us as to how we can overcome the challenges and keep on working towards our goals with full conviction.
Here, we have compiled a list of such movies that will give you an insightful picture of Science and Technology while conveying valuable life lessons. Let’s have a quick glance at the compilation of movies that every tech enthusiast must watch.
The lives we lead today would never have been the same without technology. It’s quite evident that machines and gadgets play a crucial role in our day-to-day activities and hence it is important to understand the concept of these technological innovations before we interact with them. We all know that both augmented reality and virtual reality offer an amazing gaming experience but there’s a lot more than that.
Both these technologies incorporate a common element of 3D images thereby indulging the user in a world which is unreal but still seems to be real. Besides, the media attention and market growth have been equally favourable for the two. A novice user may think of these as the same thing but technically there is a lot of difference.
ISRO made History on 24th September, 2014 when India’s spacecraft named Mangalyaan reached the Mars’ orbit in its first attempt. This mission made India the first Asian nation to enter the Martian atmosphere and the only nation to have it accomplished in its maiden attempt. Globally, India became the fourth country to do so after the prior accomplished missions of Soviet Space Program, NASA, and The European Space Agency. Interestingly, Japan and China also made efforts to reach Mars in the year 1998 and 2011 respectively but didn’t succeed.
Mangalyaan, a Hindi term for Mars Craft, is India’s satellite which has been orbiting Mars since 24th September, 2014. It was launched by Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on 5th November, 2013 from the First Launch Pad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre located in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh.
