I start with a short talk on NASA for all intents selling off crucial and essential facilities.
Then I am off with a piece of music that could be considered a true birds on a wire.
Then it is off to the first story of the day – Quest by Muzz
Back to the blog I found that the Hugos were out. However the mood was so negative that
the unthinkable. I will let you listen to uncover the absolute the total weirdness that was
the 2015 Hugo awards.
I once again have the opportunity to speak about black holes and pocket universes.
The blog: Sci-Fi Storm gets the down and dirty on some of the shows that did not make the cut.
But the Sci-Fi channel is well on its way to producing some classic science fiction of the past
Lastly our last story Echo by Alexandra-Grunberg
Episode 452! Wow! I am constantly amazed that the episodes keep coming out to 1 hour. I keep thinking….it’s going to be late…it’s going to be late and as luck would have it, they come out on time.
My initial offering deals with the SF horror genre taking a major hit this week. two new stories, plus additional material from the blog.
After the opening monologue I give us a taste of Blue Oyster.
Then the first story for the program, In Plain Sight episode #35 and the weirdness is starting to build for our favorite psychic detective Jack Garrett.
Next is a trip through the newest listings on the Beam Me Up blog – Like a rather “twisted” end to a Long March engine, or the research that may shore up the argument that Black Holes may indeed “evaporate”.
finally it is the second story for the afternoon. Child Soldier by J. Alden.
I start the program with a list I love (The Darwin Award) and Joe helped light the fire. Here we are looking at a 20 year study of the award and results.
How about a cut by Patti Smith singing an ode to the passing of the Aqua Aqua Team Hunger Force called Aqua Team Dream?
The first story for the afternoon “A Bright Future” by Jamie Lackey. A good robot story with one of the best realizations of city so sleazy and filthy that you will want to bathe afterwards!
From the blog:
bad news from SyFy
The ending story, “The Oricle is Never Wrong” by Jacey Bedford
Is brainwashing torture? Well it certainly seems that way in Himanshu Goel’s futuristic tale Brainwashing 101
I revisit Bad Dreams again with a lot of local listeners missing the first broadcast, no loss, stories by Dave Scholes are like fine wine “even better with age”
From the blog: a couple of great video sound tracks, really strange Mars picks, Planes that boggle the imagination and conversation points from yours truly.
news from Ed McKeown, a new book “My Outcast State” Now on Amazon.com
welcome to Beam Me Up, episode 449.
This week I gripe about the lack real news or at least news that isn’t focused on death and depravity!
I take a break and play “Luna Industries” theme music for the movie “Moon”.
From there I found an article describing the sling shot effect that the larger planets have on smaller craft.
The Keplier space telescope has made a startling new discovery.
Finally, David Scholes’ story “Bad Dreams” finishes out the week.
Posted in Podcast by beamupadmin| Comments Off on Beam Me Up #449 Featuring a new story from David Scholes
This week I do a live gig! Mainly for the extra time to get the story “A Matter of Character” by Ed McKeown, ready. It still had glitches, but not so bad.
Next, from the blog Kallimus says goodby for now.
David Scholes tells us that his newest book is on Amazon.
NASA is showing great interest in Shackleton’s crater.
The Star Trek merch store has a new item that I am sure all Trekies would love to add to their collections.
I review Jupiter acceding.
Lastly: I found an article that speculated on China’s capabilities of landing a man on the moon.
Yep, Episode 447 of Beam Me Up is now available.
Articles from the blog here, stories include the conclusion of the English Dead and
In Plain Sight episode 34.
Plus Herb sets in to add to the mayhem.
Welcome to Beam Me Up episode 446.
This week I start with a slightly (ok I will admit it….off the wall) musical selection that started as a bet with Joe, a frequent listener. We shall see if I at least captured the spirit….
Next I touch lightly on number bases (like we use a base 10 system, computers use base 1 and ultimately base 8 for bits and bytes) followed by a review of the movie Interstellar. A movie with an (do I dare???) interstellar cast. I know, groan…..
Then I traveled onto Mr. Stanger’s excellent story The English Dead. I was hoping to get the rest of the story done but ran out of time, so we shall include it in 447.
The Plus side is that there were a couple of minutes I could utilize for an additional blog entry, so…..
I saw a short film on Barycentric Systems, which are how primary and satellite systems behave.
I hope that some of these articles intrigues you.

Finally Part three of the quite literal cliff hanger, The English Dead by Vaughn Stanger.
Hi, welcome to episode 444 of Beam Me Up After opening, I play a fairly smooth and quiet piece of anime music leading up to the 25th anniversary of Hubble with just a few discussion points concerning Hubble as one of the single greatest research tool of the 20th century.
From the blog a short film on the paradoxes of time travel which proves very funny, New Horizons nears to it flyby of Pluto, I comment on the ultimate failure of Alton Musk’s Falcon booster, Carole sent me an article on electric space craft engine.
Kallimus sends in an article about a new cable program hosted by Neal DeGrasse which sounds fascinating!
