I love many things in the 'verse, but two of them are Mars and Marian Call. And Steven Hammond, a JPL Solar System Ambassador, has combined them both: he made a video of Mars images set to the tune Good Old Girls by Marian. Nice! The song wasn't originally about Mars, it was about... well, I'll let you figure it out. If you can't, ask a Battlestar fan. Though I think there is definitely some Serenity overlap going on there too. Steven has a high-res version of the movie for download as well. If you're a teacher, this might be a good way to get your students interested in astronomy... especially if they already like Battlestar!
