more on Beyond: JPL becomes RPL


Originally uploaded by flonium.

I’ve gotten a couple of updated notes about the filming of Beyond — at Cal Poly Pomona, in the pointy building that’s shown here, courtesy of flonium.

But though the Poly Post has a foto of RPL—Rocket Propulsion Laboratory on the cover, it’ll roll off the home page real soon now, so it’s best to see it at Periapsis.

The building was also filmed in Gattica, apparently (don’t know, have never seen).

With this pointy building, RPL is still in the San Gabriel Valley, but the Lab is no longer set upon a hill. And the Lab is situation in a place where there’s money to spare on exteriors and architecture, instead of your basic gummint low-bid square buildings.
