This week on BMU episode 349 I open with Initial D Stage 2’s opening music “Blazin Beat” by Move.

Next I play a short story by a new author to Beam Me Up, Doug Turnbull.  Doug reads his story “Tribute”.

An article from Earth Sky is next, with a fascinating with story on the “Iron Man” meteor. Earth Sky is just full of this kind of fascinating material.

Then off to the BMU blog.  I start with with an online add that goes terribly wrong with a simple typo.

SyFy again plants head well into their posteriors with the news that Alphas is not returning….room for more wrasslin.

Ever hear of the blob fish?  No?  Then you have got to check out some of the material on really strange animals that will have you askin yourself what is up with evolution anyway?!!!

ESA has a experiment planned for 2022 that will take a pair of crafts out to a near Earth object to see if in deed you can nudge one and change it’s course.  I have more details and information on the experiment.

Remember Big Dog from Boston Dynamics?  Well they have build an even larger device the size of a cow or there abouts…how long huh? How long before someone tries to ride it…yeah?

Bigelow has received an ok to attach a module to the ISS.  Bigelow you remember has already flown two earlier modules with great success.  They may just have something with their unusual structures.

On the Blog, we have been having a great discussion as to what does the universe look like a near the speed of light.  The podcast lets you in on some of the ideas flying around.

IBM’s Watson was loaded with the urban language dictionary recently and began soon after to ummm “use” the information it gathered and salted some of its responses in like form which turned out to be a bit nervewracking! lol

Plus a few other articles.

I finish this week with part 1 of Last Resort by Stephen Bartholomew from Analog 1963

That’s about it!  Enjoy!
