A lot of stars had lengthy careers with many box office hits. Box office is a rough estimate, sure, even if you adjust for inflation (which I don't). But by some estimates, Tom Hanks has the all-time worldwide box office total.

Were the richest .01 percent to venture out and form their own society, the rest of us would not devolve into violent conflict; rather, without the expensive burden of the wealthy tapeworms siphoning our common wealth, we could begin to solve our problems.

Brian Glyn Williams

Elysium is for Damon, and the millions of other people living in grinding poverty and chaos on earth below, a place of unobtainable tranquility, hope and salvation. And that is exactly what I came to see America as after a recent trip to Afghanistan where I had the grim task of working for a U.S. government agency tracking Taliban suicide bombers and their targeting patterns.

Elysium, a new sci-fi adventure movie, is about a gigantic fancy space station that is reserved for the rich. To get some insight into space station technology, space tourism, and what it takes to live in space, I was able to interview Mark Uhran, who worked for NASA for 28 years.
