Welcome to episode 420 of Beam Me Up. Not a bad episode this week. I think the odds are good that you just might enjoy the trip.

I do have opening comments this week of sorts, but find myself reviewing Rio 2. The review is a bit off the cuff, however I think I nail it.

My first offering this afternoon is the first opening theme to the anime series Kenichi the Mightiest Disciple anime series.

From there, before the first story of the afternoon, I found a really good TED science talk concerning quantum entanglement that I put on the blog, but ultimately thought it would make a great

intermediate piece (and that way it gets played even if I go long on the blog)

The first story this week is a tongue in cheek tale “Don’t Trust Venusian Mushrooms” by Doug Hilton.

From the Beam Me Up blog (wrfrbeameup.blogspot.com) I just found out that there is to be a new Spiderwoman series, which will be out in November. The alternate cover is however rising a bit of ire for content. I do have a copy of this cover on the blog.

Oh and controversy is not just for Spiderwoman, my comic book guy tells me that weirdness is happening with the Thor series and Captain America….

NASA has been working with a very interesting aircraft that has some very interesting technology.

There are many more articles on the blog, but I really wanted to make sure that I got chapter two part two of Crystalwizard’s “Wizard’s Bane” on this week.

And that does it for this week and episode 420. Thanks for listening.

In my opening comments I talk about “Future Diary” an excellent anime series all so I can play the opening theme for same!

Next a review of “RIO pt2” in short, calling it a turd is doing it a favor.

I always like the week where I get to run another episode of IPS.

This week Episode 28 of In Plain Sight written and narrated by Jason Kahn, 28th months from the talented Mr. Kahn 2 and 1/3 years and he is still going strong.  I honestly hope he decides to compile these great stories into an ebook, that would be so great!

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has again spotted something on Titan of  scientific interest.  Plus some trivia on Titan.

It is no surprise that I really like the concept of 3d printers.  Now that they are becoming affordable and easy to operate, the are becoming much more prevalent, even NASA is taking up the reigns for the devices.

And catch up on the darkest material yet…it’s wild!

And the final story for the afternoon is “Even a Non-Corporeal Can Get  Lonely by David Scholes

Well, what do you know, Beam Me Up is in da houuuuuuse!

After my opening comments I play a piece of audio called the speed of dark which is brilliant in it’s explanation of the opposite of lightspeed…

Next is a cut piece of music.  It comes from the closing music of the anime series “The Devil is a partimer”

next is the rendezvous of the craft Rosetta as after 10 years has finally caught comet Chury

The final offering this week is the conclusion of Chury called “Double Down on Double by Michael Juby.

Beam Me Up # 417 News, Music + pt1 Doubling Down On Dublee – Michael Juby

In this week’s opening comments, I marvel at what it takes to get an  automated craft to the outer planets, this was in reaction to the upcoming flyby of Pluto and the ESA craft that is fast closing on it’s  target comet and marveling at the time and effort that both experiments have had to undergo just to finish their tasks!

I break this flow with a really good music track “collide”. The music  itself is a great deal of fun but the strange baseball challenge that this cut is playing to is even more fun.  Podcast yes, but do take a  trip over to the blog @ wrfrbeamEup.blogspot.com.  I often don’t get a chance to read all the articles I have planned, so this would be a  good reason to take a jaunt over there.

Before I start with this week’s story, I take my own advice and go  looking for highlights on this week’s blog.

I make the suggestion to check out this month’s sky sighting over at Space.com for planets, moon phases and other planetary events.

After reading an article by Jesus Diaz writing for Gizmodo, was marveling at an astronaut floating 200 miles above the planet and I start a conversation of just this sort of amazing eye opener.

The Mars 2020 rover is getting interest and therefor a bit more news,  and news about the worlds largest rocket lifting platform.

Finally, part one of Michael Jube’s Doubling Down on Dublee
