Age 95 years and 224 days, to be exact. That’s the age of legendary Utah ski instructor Junior Bounous on April 5 when he entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s oldest heli-skier.

One of my favorite movies is Contact, the story of a SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) scientist who finds strong evidence of extraterrestrial life and is chosen to make first contact. The film, an adaptation of Carl Sagan’s novel of the same name, stars Jodie Foster as Dr. Ellie Arroway, the film’s protagonist.
