Beam Me Up #357 Know How Can Do pt3 – Michael Blumlein

Listen to this episode















First off, Yes this show is a bit short. On the original
program, I had exported all three parts to Mr. Blumlein’s
story instead of just the third part, so this version has
pretty much all the content I wanted….but shorter.
Anyway, I noted that there is this push by the do-it-yourself
folk towards very sophisticated instruments that can be built
from material around the house like construction paper and
cheap cameras. I noted an article that Ron had put on the
blog about paper adapters that could be taped over the camera
of a smart phone and thought that was pretty damn inventive! A
spectrogram out of paper and a smart phone!

Next I read contributor Kallamis’ Weekly Roundup which runs
the gamut from mini black holes to life in the universe. Yep
he sure aims high. I did thrown in an article KNLA ran on
their web site about findings from the mars rover Curiosity
which reported results very much the same, however the still
operational Opportunity’s data showed different results.

Earth-Sky is next on the agenda. On a dad note, Earth-Sky will
be closing down this summer after a spectacular run. They
will be difficult to replace. This week’s articles ALMA
telescope array is now fully functional. Next, research has
shown that there are tens of billion planets in orbit around
red dwarf stars in our own galaxy.

From there, I started this week’s story, part three of Michael
Blumlein’s Know How Can Do.

Sorry the program run short this week, I will be in better
shape next week.

Thanks for listening – enjoy
