This week on Beam Me Up – episode 425 – after my opening comments, I play the first of two music selections. This week, Monochrome Kiss by SID. Interesting selection from the world of Anime.

Next up is an article that you could say I used as a model for this week’s program.  The article in question is the top six places of the Darwin award followed straight away by a fast piece of music from BECCA called appropriately enough “I’m Alive!” the closing theme to the anime series “Black Butler”.

On the blog front, Kallamus joins us for his review of the Marvel series Agents of Shield.  His next review Brick Mansion doesn’t miss a step and

Running out of time, I finish this weeks program with the final chapters to Isaac Asimov’s “The Final Question”

And that is Beam Me Up episode 425  I hope you enjoy the program

My opening comment for episode 424 I speak in part about Dremel’s new 3d printer, I welcome a new contributor to Beam Me Up. Plus I speak about the OSIRIS-REx Mission of putting a lander on an asteroid in 2016 plus Maven has done an insertion burn for it’s prelim orbit.

My musical selection for the afternoon is BNL’s “The Big Bang”

I speak briefly about Isaac Asimov and John Campbell as their work  together.  This week chapter four of “The Last Question”

I read  the intro from (“my anime guy”) better known as “Mebbles”  which he posted on the blog.  Mebbles also has some favorite anime music of which I play a selection.  For my part, I mention a couple of  series  that I have have enjoyed over the past few months.

Next on the agenda is chapter 4 of the “Last Question” by Isaac Asimov.

I read “Meebles” introduction letter. (he should prove to be an excellent addition to the staff) plus he includes a fun url for his favorite anime music which I just can’t resist!

I talk about a couple of anime series that I just finished watching.

Kalimus posts a review of Asylum productions newest outing z Nation.

I talk about Dremel’s newest printer which is an affordable 3d printer and how it reminded me of a story by Cory Doctorow.

My final story  Tiny Leon and his Wee adventure by Michael Juby.

Hope you enjoy the program.  Thanks for listening.

I open with Eat Dreams which is a remix of Eurythmics music and commercials audio.

Next is a milestone update for the rover Curiosity plus NASA’s next gen of heavy lift rocket that will ferry astronauts and cargo  anywhere from low Earth orbit to Mars or beyond.

The first story for the afternoon is The Last Question chapter 3 by Asimov.

From the BMU blog: First a review of the British SF movie “The Machine”

A look at the next Batmobile, the argument of can a person or country “own” asteroids or other heavenly bodies?  Can you brew in space? Did Nicaragua get slammed by a piece off low flying asteroid?

And chapter 3 of book one of CrystalWizard’s Wizard’s Bane is the final story for the afternoon.

Enjoy and thanks for listening!

The first offering is the closing theme to the anime series “Wagnaria”

The first story is Kevin J. Phyland’s  “Famine”

From the first story to the Beam Me Up blog – I start with a brief  review of “The amazing Spiderman II”.  What does space smell like?

A college  student does another student a solid by designing and printing a much needed device.  That and more, from the blog.
