In a tweet, Altman said, “I was hoping that the Oppenheimer movie would inspire a generation of kids to be physicists but it really missed the mark on that. Let’s get that movie made! (I think the social network managed to do this for startup founders.)”

He went on to praise the “Apollo 11” movie instead calling it the most inspiring film he has ever seen, strongly recommending it.
