After my opening comments I play one of my fav rock pieces, Dream On by Areosmith. The piece seems to fit the overall theme.

From the Beam Me Up blog at wrfrbeameup.blogspot.com I read about Hubble which has discovered a new red dwarf system. Also NASA is putting a good deal of faith in SpaceX by ordering a second crew mission to the international space station. That and a couple of articles on Rovers, China’s yuto and the upcomming Mars_2020 due for launch 2020

This week I start with part one of the story Expanded Horizons by Gustavo Bondoni

This week I have two stories.  Opening Doors by Sean Mulroy and Handyman by Frank Banta.  I start with Elton John’s Rocketman, then head over for a few articles from the blog.   Astronomers have observed the most luminous galaxies   in the universe.  10 bil 4 after big bang.  Bigelow spacecraft module.  Supergirl still has not been reserved.  The Batman / Joker animation “The Killing Joke” is due out this summer and The Justice League vs Tean Titans is available as of this publication.  Finally Adam Nemoy “For the Love of Spock” has released a trailer.  Adam raised over 600 thousand dollars towards the final project.  No time line yet, but I can not imagine it being too far out there.

Beam Me Up #462 Accidental Death – Peter Bailey

Feb
06

In episode 462 the main story is Accidental Death, a bit of a “flash from the past” from author Peter Bailey.

News from the blog: first off from Kallamus is comments on the Chronicles of Shinara and Star Trek. Next are my observations on “Space 1999” plus where they can play a behind the scenes short, this concerning the intricate modeling of the ships that was done.  Next, with new detectors, it may be within scientists’ reach to observe gravity Waves.

Has the 9th planet truly been discovered?

Carole sent in photos of folks that will most likely be future inductees into the Darwin Awards list.

That about ties it up for another episode.  I hope you enjoy the podcast.
