Welcome to the eighth year of Beam Me Up! Episode 366 is the first episode of the eighth yeah and who knows what will happen this year!

This week’s program starts with former ISS commander Chris Hadfield, who among his other talents, is an accomplished musician, performs David Bowie’s Major Tom while aboard the ISS.   Even Bowie himself said that it was one of the most poignant renditions of his song and the video is beautiful. Well I can’t play the video, but I do have it on the blog (you can find it on Youtube as well.

Flash from the past again this week, I rejoin Fritz Leiber’s 1960 tale, No Great Magic. This week is chapter four.

From news this week, info on 1998 QE2, the 1.7 mile asteroid, makes it’s closest pass May 31.

From Earth Sky, where does the solar system fall in place among the stars of the Milky-Way? How many sunsets and sun rises would you see on the moon in a month…? And scientists succeed in storing data in DNA.

Boston Dynamics now has PETMAN! The video is wild! Do you remember Skylab?

I review the animated feature Lady Death.

I finish with Colin Davies’ very inventive tale, The Fighter.

All in all, a good start to the new year.
