I was watching the Mars landing yesterday morning (and boy was it tense) when I noticed one of the scientists in the front row resembled the scientist in "Independence Day". The one I mean was the character with the long grey hair in the Area 47 bunker who got squashed by the alien. Was it just me?

Anyway, congrats to all that team for their hard work, dedication and resolve

Wow - NASA hired Lt. Cmdr. Data? Quite a coup!

(The actor Brent Spiner played both Data in the Star Trek: The Next Generation TV series/movies and the character in Independence Day that you described).

Gosh I never realised that was 'Data' - no wonder I thought he was familiar!

I thought I had inherited a gene from my late father. He could always spot major film stars in very minor roles in their earlier careers. I thought the gene had just morphed into spotting real life people who looked like actors!

Can you think of anyone in that category?
