Welcome to Beam Me Up – episode 437.

Pretty well grounded episode this week.

After the opening monologue, I open with a great anime musical piece, Nobody knows.

Before the first story of the afternoon, I switch gears and read a short article from Kallamis that if you like the Darwins or the more recent “Here is your sign” then you can understand his dismay and frustration even while laughing.

The first story for the afternoon is a funny little tale called “My New Roommate” from a new writer for BMU Russ Bickerstaff.

From the blog, NASA’s Dawn is closing in on it’s second half of its asteroid mission by visiting the most massive body in the asteroid belt.

EU’s Beagle 2 lander which has been missing for better than 10 years may have been found.

I found an awesome youtube video on quantum mechanics.  I have the link but it was a bit long for this weekend’s program.

Finally, I play part two of Mimsy Were the Borogoves read by CrystalWizard.

And that’s it.  I hope you enjoy the program.

This week in Beam Me Up episode 436 is the beginning of MIMSY WERE THE BOROGOVES by Lewis Padgett and read by (we were so lucky to have her) CrystalWizard.

But before part one of Mimsy were the Borogoves, I take a trip to the podcast.

An alarm aboard the ISS forces evacuation….

An asteroid is due to make a close pass….

Kepler Space Telescope had found a record breaking earthlike planets

I post a film of a static test of the RS-25 rocket engine that will be the main engine for the sls heavy lift system.

Eight people who need an idiot sign.  I mean REALLY need a sign…

2015 is the year that Back to the Future and Marty’s Hoverboard.  Here  are 6 reasons why you would hate one!

And finally CrystalWizard reads Mimsy were the Borogoves

After my opening for this week’s episode (435) I spend a moment memorializing Jason Kahn who passed away 12/16/14 after a long illness.

Next – the first story of the afternoon is Venus or Bust pt2 by Alec Jones

From the Blog  wrfrbeameup.blogspot.com

A fake tweet from NASA and a planetary alignment might make you feel lighter?

2015 is an auspicious year for Back to the Future, how much did they get right and how much was plain misses.

Some people have way too much time on their hands and way too many legos!

SpaceX is another step closer to crew transport.

Finally this episode ends with part two of Margaret Karmazin’s Sound Effects.

Enjoy!
