in episode 421 of Beam Me Up….
The first offering is the closing theme to the anime series “Wagnaria”
The first story is Kevin J. Phyland’s “Famine”
From the first story to the Beam Me Up blog – I start with a brief review of “The amazing Spiderman II”. What does space smell like?
Astronomers studying the dust cloud surrounding the Milkyway’s core known as Sagittarius 2 have discovered even more complex smells. New Horizon has set yet another milestone in its quest to do a fly by of Pluto in 2015. A college student does another student a solid by designing and printing a much needed device. That and more, from the blog.
Finally from Isaac Asimov, “The Final Question” part 1
Welcome to episode 420 of Beam Me Up. Not a bad episode this week. I think the odds are good that you just might enjoy the trip.
I do have opening comments this week of sorts, but find myself reviewing Rio 2. The review is a bit off the cuff, however I think I nail it.
My first offering this afternoon is the first opening theme to the anime series Kenichi the Mightiest Disciple anime series.
From there, before the first story of the afternoon, I found a really good TED science talk concerning quantum entanglement that I put on the blog, but ultimately thought it would make a great
intermediate piece (and that way it gets played even if I go long on the blog)
The first story this week is a tongue in cheek tale “Don’t Trust Venusian Mushrooms” by Doug Hilton.
From the Beam Me Up blog (wrfrbeameup.blogspot.com) I just found out that there is to be a new Spiderwoman series, which will be out in November. The alternate cover is however rising a bit of ire for content. I do have a copy of this cover on the blog.
Oh and controversy is not just for Spiderwoman, my comic book guy tells me that weirdness is happening with the Thor series and Captain America….
NASA has been working with a very interesting aircraft that has some very interesting technology.
There are many more articles on the blog, but I really wanted to make sure that I got chapter two part two of Crystalwizard’s “Wizard’s Bane” on this week.
And that does it for this week and episode 420. Thanks for listening.
In my opening comments I talk about “Future Diary” an excellent anime series all so I can play the opening theme for same!
Next a review of “RIO pt2″ in short, calling it a turd is doing it a favor.
I always like the week where I get to run another episode of IPS.
This week Episode 28 of In Plain Sight written and narrated by Jason Kahn, 28th months from the talented Mr. Kahn 2 and 1/3 years and he is still going strong. I honestly hope he decides to compile these great stories into an ebook, that would be so great!
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has again spotted something on Titan of scientific interest. Plus some trivia on Titan.
It is no surprise that I really like the concept of 3d printers. Now that they are becoming affordable and easy to operate, the are becoming much more prevalent, even NASA is taking up the reigns for the devices.
And catch up on the darkest material yet…it’s wild!
And the final story for the afternoon is “Even a Non-Corporeal Can Get Lonely by David Scholes
Well, what do you know, Beam Me Up is in da houuuuuuse!
After my opening comments I play a piece of audio called the speed of dark which is brilliant in it’s explanation of the opposite of lightspeed…
Next is a cut piece of music. It comes from the closing music of the anime series “The Devil is a partimer”
next is the rendezvous of the craft Rosetta as after 10 years has finally caught comet Chury
The final offering this week is the conclusion of Chury called “Double Down on Double by Michael Juby.
In this week’s opening comments, I marvel at what it takes to get an automated craft to the outer planets, this was in reaction to the upcoming flyby of Pluto and the ESA craft that is fast closing on it’s target comet and marveling at the time and effort that both experiments have had to undergo just to finish their tasks!
I break this flow with a really good music track “collide”. The music itself is a great deal of fun but the strange baseball challenge that this cut is playing to is even more fun. Podcast yes, but do take a trip over to the blog @ wrfrbeamEup.blogspot.com. I often don’t get a chance to read all the articles I have planned, so this would be a good reason to take a jaunt over there.
Before I start with this week’s story, I take my own advice and go looking for highlights on this week’s blog.
I make the suggestion to check out this month’s sky sighting over at Space.com for planets, moon phases and other planetary events.
After reading an article by Jesus Diaz writing for Gizmodo, was marveling at an astronaut floating 200 miles above the planet and I start a conversation of just this sort of amazing eye opener.
The Mars 2020 rover is getting interest and therefor a bit more news, and news about the worlds largest rocket lifting platform.
Finally, part one of Michael Jube’s Doubling Down on Dublee
My opening comments this week is pointing out some of the thing I like to do that used to be common on the radio and now we hardly hear of any of that. Along those lines I spend time describing what makes Beam Me Up work.
The program proper starts with music: Fight or Flight by Yu Kobiyashi (spell…:( )
Next Jason Kahn’s In Plain Sight episode 27 of the Dark Inspector / In Plain Sight following psyic detective Jack Garrett on New Eden.
Over at the blog – recent discoveries of hot Jupiter like planets have thrown how planets form into flux. This touched a side conversation concerning the incomprehensible distance some of these planets are!
NASA wants private industry to think about doing sat comm for the NASA rovers.
The Voyager argument has once again raised the argument
The final story for the week is Skipping Stones by Devin Miller
Good stories and interesting articles. Hope you enjoy.
Welcome to Beam Me Up episode 415.
After my opening comments I play a piece of John Anealio’s work called Steam Punk Girl which has been used as the music bed for an animated music video of the same name. It’s a very clever video.
From there I jump right into the first story of the afternoon with Crystalwizard’s book Wizard’s Bane – chapter 2 – part 1
Next I look to the blog for news like a simple and cheap antibiotic may be a huge boon to infectious diseases, or a possible breakthrough in understanding the causes of Downs Syndrome – and a possible way to prevent cancer.
The balance of the afternoon is David Scholes’ second story in the Human Hunter series – Human Hunter:The Kickass House.
That’s it! I hope you enjoy this episode.
I play a piece of music from anime series shortly after my opening monologue.
The first piece of short fiction comes from the pen of Muzz called Quest which is one of the most twisted pieces I have read for some time.
From the Beam Me Up blog Airbus has a patent for a windowless cocpit for future planes.
Researchers are working on a device that could help will a variety of brain damage syndromes.
Dave Scholes is offering his newest collection of short stories called Daughter of the High Lords on Amazon.
I review the newest Robocop remake.
CrystalWizard has let me read her newest series called Sojourn Chronicle and we will be having all 6 books! I start this week with book 1 chapter 1 part 1. The Chronicle is good speculative fiction not only pure sci-fi but neither is is fantasy.
That does it for this week. Enjoy
After my opening comments and playing the opening music from Durara which is a highly inventive anime series, I head straight to the Beam Me Up Blog.
First up, Kallimus talks about the new season of Space Dandy. I follow that up with an original production from Netflix called Knights of Sidonia, which after a couple of episodes I would give the series a thumbs up. The next anime offering is from Crunchyroll which will be offering “Rail Wars” sound very promising.
On the science side of the news – I find an article on 3d biopringing. In this case vascular network for 3d organs.
On the Goldilocks type planets, there is evidence that some may not even exist. From Space.com – Gum-15 a stellar nursery nebula of super massive stars may be destroyed by the very stars that
Fan of Futurerama? How about Farnsworth’s smelloscope? Do you know that NASA has an individual that does a very similar function….
I found this very disturbing video of a dancing puppet and I do mean disturbing. Check out the video on the Beam Me Up blog at wrfrbeameup.blogspot.com
hey if you can’t swing a quarter mil for a ride into space. How about a balloon ride that is much cheaper and goes to about 122 thousand.
And an Airforce engineer has found a very inventive way of detecting and tracking space debris.
The story this week is Ringminer’s Daughter by Duncan Shields
After my opening observations I play the closing theme for the anime
series called Red Data girl.
I then play a short story by CrystalWizard called Best Laid Plans.
This is a story that I ran this story back in April of 09, its’ every
bit as good today.
From the blog – Musk of SpaceX and Tesla motors has some concerns on
AI Deep Mind and Vicarious are two businesses that Musk uses to keep
an eye on the emerging artifical inteligence field.
A grea Fall by Phil Temples is a story that takes a well known tale
and retells it as a mystery….Enjoy
