Re: Star Trek: The Experience
During the 05 visit I took a behind the scenes tour and found out how they accomplished the transporter effect for visitors, which I admit took some of the fun out of the trick (I also had to sign a confidentiality agreement for the tour).
We did that too. Having been on that ride many times, we could never figure it out. It was fascinating to see how it really worked.
“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States...The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge'.” - Isaac Asimov
