Episode 467 of Beam Me Up is now available.

This week I start with selected articles from the blog: India testing a shuttle style reusable spacecraft, plumes on Mars that are acting very strange, CW picks up Supergirl, Ron reports the next Canadian astronaut to visit the ISS, This year’s Nebula awards have been awarded, SpaceX Dragon is now due for unpacking and delivery of over 3k lbs of material from the ISS.

David Scholes sends in a short story called Wild Ride.

And the final story is Accidental Death by Peter Bailey which is about it for me this week.

This week I open with STYX Come Sail Away.  You wouldn’t think it had a science fiction connection, but it does!  Listen close.

Next I head to the blog with articles like (all tongue in cheek mind you) strange ways to die in space.

There is some breaking news concerning CBS’Supergirl.

And the story for this week: Automatic Sky by Stephen S. Powers

I start off with a musical select followed by news from the blog: funny video, movie review, Ceres has some weird bright spots, some NASA news and some really fun facts.

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.

Talking points:

Still feeling maudlin with the passing of David Bowie, I start with one of my favorite cuts off the Young American album.

Next it is on to the Beam Me Up blog.

SyFy has renewed the Magicians for a second season.

ESA’s lander Philae, launched by the Rosetta mother craft, has been declared dead.

Record setting applications for NASA’s  2017  astronaut class.

NASA’S WFirst space telescope is looking to gather more data than hubble.

Apollo 10 heard some weird noise while passing around the back side of the moon.

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.

Beam Me Up 460! (More reliable location used)

I honestly thought it was going to be a run of the mill, but I think it turned out kinda nice.

For the most part there is a whole lot of bitchin but in Kal and me but for different reason but with Ron Huber.

I lead off with  a possible LHC particle find.  Possible is as far as I am going to take it in the show description.

Next is a none too restrained Kallamis.  Kall let fly on the BMU blog with a run on comment concerning Star Wars and J.J. Abrams that is so harsh and funny, it is worth the price of  admission, as the old-time carnival barkers would say.

Ron comes up with a crackerjack find with Canada joining efforts to bring back to Earth a piece of asteroid Bennu.  There are many reasons why this particular asteroid was chosen – but lets save it for the blog or the podcast.

Oh and if you haven’t read about Woodland NC and a proposed solar power station you have some truly (dare I say it) either backwater or pure redneck.

Finally a new author for Beam Me Up    Russell Hemmell with his story Tugship

I hope you enjoy the program…

I start off episode 459 by talking about assumption made about the possibility of life elsewhere in the Universe.

I play Chris Hadfields version of David Bowie’s Space Oddity.

I review the animated movie Home and the live action film
America Ultra.

The first story of the afternoon is a short by David Scholes and read by Ron Huber called Virtual Reality Traveling.

The last story is The Strange Side by Brayan Ortiz.

I start off episode 458 with observations concerning stupid questions and even stupider answers by the political pundits vying for the office of the
President.

My musical selection was A Glorious Dawn by Symphony of Science.

From the Beam Me Up blog http://wrfrbeameup.blogspot.com/  a couple of
new planets have been discovered, but don’t look for either to be life bearing.

I review “Terminator Genisis”

And close with episode 36 of Jason Kahn’s In Plain Sight
