Fast moving and plenty of stuff this week on Beam Me Up episode 279.

I start things off with one of the fast pieces of music for the animated series Naruto Shippuden   Syoujo by Scandal.

In this week’s blog, it seems everyone is talking about the star system discovered by the Kepler Space Telescope.  One planet but two sun which brings to mind almost immediately  the Star Wars World Tatooine!  Everything from a ghost planet to a frozen -100 degree world was bandied about.

The Russian resupply crash was caused by a clogged fuel line in the third stage engine of the Soyuz rocket. This particular fuel line was driving a turbo pump that pumps fuel into the main combustion chamber, so when the pump failed, the third stage shut down.  However knowing the cause and getting back on track for a crew change in early November a tall order at best.

Hey, did you ever see James Cameron’s “The Abyss”? It still rates right up there as one of my all time favorite science fiction movies and not for the end, because the end was a cop out and a sell out and didn’t come within a row of assholes of making sense, but up to that point wow, it’s Alien only underwater where EVERYTHING kills you! The reason there was never a remake or part two? No one would go back for a remake.  Well I found this series of “the making of” on the movie “The Abyss” and if you never saw the movie you don’t know what you missed and if you did, then check out the “making of” because it is fascinating!

NASA has a newheavy-lift launch vehicle that they say will provide an entirely new national capability for human exploration beyond Earth’s orbit. The Space Launch System will give the nation a safe, affordable and sustainable ….hummm I heard that somewhere before…

Up for discussion is five possible ways time travel may work….  the functional word here is MAY  because I seriously doubt WILL.

And for our story this week.  Part 2 and the conclusion to Adam-Troy Castro’s   wonderful and controversial  “ Arvies”
