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

And an Airforce engineer has found a very inventive way of detecting and tracking space debris.
