Universal has actually finally disclosed a release date for Steven Spielberg’s classic E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial on Blu-ray, which will certainly hit racks October 9th. In line with the box art and trailer we saw previously this Anniversary Edition Combo pack will certainly include Ultraviolet, a DVD and Digital Copy of the flick, as well as a multitude of extras featuring a brand-new interview with Spielberg, behind the scenes logs, and erased scenes from the 2002 release of the film. Curiously there’s no reference of the Spaceship Limited Edition copy that Blu-ray. com notes just recently popped up on Amazon, check into a video presentation of the case for that $ 139.98 plan after the break and also a standard Blu-ray movie trailer and news release. Those willing to agree to a more standard sort of packaging can easily pre-order on Amazon for $ 23.99.

Ever since Universal announced during CES 2012 that it would deliver many of its classic films on Blu-ray this year as part of a centennial celebration, we’ve been keeping a careful eye out for news regarding Steven Spielberg’s classic E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial. While we still don’t know the release date, price or if it will contain the changes made in the 2002 edition of the flick, Universal posted a trailer for the Blu-ray (embedded after the break) that confirmed a digital remastering from the 35MM film, 7.1 surround sound and “hours of bonus features”. Additionally, forum posters on Blu-ray.com have noticed this (probably not final) box art appearing on Amazon UK recently. After waiting for word since a new distribution deal brought the flick back to Universal in 2008, a few months of silence hasn’t broken us, but hopefully more details appear soon. The best guess still sees the 30th Anniversary release hitting store shelves in time for the holidays (like after Jaws, which is scheduled for release August 14th), when we can relive our childhoods in proper 1080p HD at last.

Few things are quite as exciting as a good old fashioned feud between distinguished scientists. You’ll recall that a scientist, Nasa’s Richard Hoover, published an article last week in The Journal of Cosmology that claimed to have discovered a form of extraterrestrial bacteria on a meteorite. Life, in other words. But hold on! In the days that have since passed a number of scientists have come out agains the claim, saying that the original article was flawed, and, in essence, there’s nothing to see here; move along. What gives?
First, some more background info. The article, Fossils of Cyanobacteria in CI1 Carbonaceous Meteorites, argued that, having found bacteria on certain meteorites, life on Earth â€œmay have come from other planets.â€ It’s sorta like how Superman crash-landed on Earth: life coming from elsewhere, adjusting to this planet’s climate and eventually thriving.
This, of course, pretty much flies in the face of existing scientific theories about the origin of life on planet Earth, so naturally there was bound to be some opposition.
One such opposer, the University of British Columbia’s Rosie Redfield, said the article was, in essence, a load of bunk, saying that the article may be a lot of things, but it certainly wasn’t science.
A Harvard astronomer, Rudy Schild, said the article, while fun and all, wasn’t properly peer-reviewed. What good is a scientific article if it’s not peer-reviewed? What’s to stop me from writing a post saying I’ve discovered a way to turn old coffee grounds into gold?
The Journal of Cosmology, of course, says that the article was, in fact, peer-reviewed. In fact, it called the article its most reviewed article ever. So go figure.
Does any of this sound familiar? It should. Remember that whole arsenic-using bacteria brouhaha from a few months ago? It’s a similar situation here: scientist makes a grand claim, and other scientists immediately hate on the claim.
As the world turns, I suppose.
