After some opening comments on this weekend’s Beam Me Up (episode 399).  I again play Love is coming back from an anime classic, this time I again posit the question, does the artist at times sound like an early Rod Stewart at times?

First up is a op ed piece from my favorite op/ed writer Kallimus and he is in good for this week!!!!

While my opening info peice concerns a low gravity simulation lab.  Better known as the vomit rockets.  And an unusual use of these devices.

I do a review of Enders Game the movie…

And finally I do get a story in.  Part one of Cory Doctorow’s By his things, shall you know him.

BMU 398 is here!  So  lets get started

My first offering is an unusual peice of anime music.  From all things a series that I have avoided for years.  I was looking for some cutsie anime music so I watched this episode and was floored on the ending song.  It’s great!  So is the series surprisingly enough covers so many different aspects of life and it is not kiddy anime…weird

I have been reading on the James Webb and I start the science continue on the Webb space telescope.

Next is my review of Elyisium  With Matt Damon and Jodie Foster.  Next, NASA wants the ISS to get cold. Plus have you seen the new trailer for the next Captain America wow.

Oh and you can now see Felix’s jump from near space.  All the camera footage has been released.

And Tratth: Return to Empire  By David Scholes

That’s it in a nut shell!  Enjoy

Here we are for another week of Beam Me Up.  This Week episode 397.  After my

opening comments I play another track from John Anelio’s Walk the Fire album.

This Week’s cut, “Stuck at the Bottom of the Mine”.

I have been doing Star Trek trivia for some time, but it IS wearing a bit

thin, so I have swapped in some Twilight Zone odd facts which seem to be many!

Off to the Beam Me Up blog:

First is a review of the animated feature “The Croods”

Early Solar system dynamics were pretty chaotic with the gas giants doing a

dance through the inner system!

I have a link to one of the most clever short films

Plus the funniest rip on the early Batman & Robin feature film, all the

incontestability and just plain WRONG material, this short actually makes the

older film more enjoyable!

The Sierra Nevada corp uncovers it’s Dream Chaser, a reusable lifting body,

which will help deliver men and supplies to the ISS.

and our story for this week….KS Dearsley’s  “The pitch”

Enjoy!
