Old sci-fi movies got it right!

It used to be a staple of B-movie science fiction involving travel in outer space or landing on another planet: the meteor shower, rocks flying through space and threatening our heroes with explosive decompression (see yesterday’s post!) or worse.

Turns out, they may have been on to something.

A recent episode of The Backyardigans (our TV is locked on the preschool Treehouse channel, since we have a five-year-old) had our singing kid-whatever-they-ares threatened by a meteor shower. Fortunately, they had a meteor umbrella on their rover.

Maybe NASA should watch more kid-TV!
