This week on BMU episode 386:
After a quick intro, I play Diver by Nico Touches the Wall after which I find some really good ST-tos online trivia. I thought I had a pretty good handle on Star Trek trivia, but these were really cool facts.
Then it is over to the Beam Me Up blog. Could 3d printing save over 100 million lab animals lives? Also 3d printing could also mean many possibilities in ready made electronics, clothing the sky is the limit…check out the blog address.
The Russian space program is planning a trip to Mars’ moon Phobos and hopefully much more?
You have got to see the most amazing picture of Saturn taken by Cassini.
I bet you dont know who built the Apollo 11 moon eva suits. It floored me!
What did the Milky Way look like in it’s infancy? Astronomers use some pretty inventive methods to extrapolate the galaxies look billions of years ago.
After another musical interlude I read Lee Lander’s story Indigo Puree
That is about all for this weekend, I hope you enjoy this week’s program.
After my opening comments at the start of Beam Me Up 385 I play Listen by Meakitty which if don’t miss my guess is a riff on Zelda
Next I take a moment for some Star Trek TOS and talk about the episode “The Alternative Factor” and some of the hijinks that went on to ruin what could have been a very good show.
From the BMU Blog first off, the most recent meteorite strike in Russia and how this may reflect negativly on frequency of impacts..like maybe instead of every other century, every decade or so. What would the North American coastline look like if all the polar ice melted at once. The Russians had to move a Soyuz capsule to make room for a new complement that another Soyuz is bringing up to fill out the crew complement to 9.
It also may be possible that the Milkyway and Andromeda may have already collided 10 billion years ago and as such may fundamentally change our understanding of gravity.
You will not believe the age of the person who has discovered a supernova that no one has ever seen before!
And finally David Scholes The Battle at Times End which is a fine story. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
That’s it! Hope you enjoy the program
episode 384 of Beam Me Up is a very relaxed program this week. After a short intro I play the theme music to the animated Iron Man. From there I do a bit of Star Trek Trivia. More general info instead of a specific program. All in all though it was an informative section.
From there it is over to the Beam Me Up Blog for some of this weeks news. Like comets visible early in the morning, plus info on many of the excellent short films that is out this week alone!
Next, the MAVEN Mars Atmosphere exploration space craft is still go for launch this month.
ABC has ordered 9 new episodes of Agents of Shield!
Scientific data that indicates that extended spaceflight can be hazardous to many bodily functions!
Finally the conclusion to Van Hall’s What Makes a Thursty God on Fallons World?
Hope you enjoy this weeks program
