Beam Me Up 272 goes fast this week. I start off with a new tale from Fox Dunham. Memories long since faded are called on once again, and a man who is not a man is all that stands between humanity and darkness – Seth 7.
The hour ends with the conclusion to Deanna Knippling’s tale of the defender of the multiverse. This week after resurrecting from a most horrific murder, Beauregard comes face to face with with his murderer and the truth of who it is and why may end everything.
From the blog a short excerpt from a speech by Neil Degrasse-Tyson on why he feels NASA is vital to the health of our country.
It has been a long held belief that Earth has a Trojan companion, but until recently, none had been discovered. That now has changed and Earth joins an elite group of planets with Trojan companions.
The U.S. isplanning on deorbiting the ISS in 2020 crashing everything into the ocean …… The Russians, on the other hand, are already planning to refurbish many of their ISS modules and reuse them as part of a new Orbital Piloted Assembly and Experiment Complex to support deep space exploration.
In 1967 Lunar Orbiter 2 was launched with a mission to help with landing sites for the Apollo moon missions. Once the mission was finished NASA crash-landed it on the far side of the Moon. Until recently it’s crash site was lost, until now.
China is preparing its’ Tiangong-1 space station for lift off aboard a Long March II-F carrier booster later this year.
That and more this week on Beam Me Up

Beam Me Up episode 271 continues this week with part 3 of Deanna Knippling’s Paid. Things get even stranger for our intrepid cross dimensional detective as he begins to unravel his latest murder mystery, from an evangelist that most likely isn’t a lawyer who is who knows what and Boregard keeps getting himself inconveniently killed….
I open with a new story from an author new to BMU. Andrew Bale sends in First Flight. Humanity’s first interstellar flight comes to a very strange end.
From the blog
NASA has signed a deal worth 306 million dollars with Roskomos for six rides to the ISS in 2012 and 2013, or a charge of 51 million dollars per US astronaut. However Russia may up the price.
astronauts aboard the ISS had watched Atlantis as it entered the atmosphere from the stations Cupola viewing window. And someone snapped a photo!
Hubble has discovered a new moon around Pluto. So far is the smallest discovered around the dwarf planet. Designated P4, It has an estimated diameter of 8 to 21 miles.
JoshM reviews the movie Green Lantern. What should have been an inspiration, Josh describes as apathetic.
NASA’s Dawn spacecraft began sending back photographs of Vesta from the asteroid belt.
Part of the X chromosome found in people from outside Africa originally comes from our Neanderthal cousins. So much for the theory that they never interbred!
And Black holes instead of slowing down are spinning faster than they ever have since the Universe began! How is that possible
That and more from this week’s episode of beam 271

This week on episode 270 of Beam Me Up episode 14 of Jason Kahn’s Dark Inspectre. Our intrepid detective is framed for a grisly murder. Which means he is getting close, but before he can prove his innocence he might find himself dead instead.
Oddcube joins us once again for his unusual brand of reviews – This week Dungeon Seige is the unfortunate target of his unusual utterances.
From the blog I review the movie Spirit, the review might be of some use, the movie sure wasn’t.
Scientists build a time cloak? The 2010 Locus awards are in! Dawn meets Vesta. Check out a 360 VR view interactive of the Shuttle flight deck. astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson along with Neil Armstrong and John Glenn spank NASA. First time ever a comet has been photographed plowing into the sun. And did you know that the Buran was built to drop bombs?!!!
I close with part 2 of Paid by Deanna Knippling. You will not believe how time is handled in this wildly weird tale. And the bad guy? even weirder!

This week on Beam Me Up I take advantage of local talent for stories. From the talented
pen of Zachery Cole I play Greeters – What is it like to be a greeter for a big box department
store now imagine you have been built expressly for that purpose – and all you want is a little time to figure out how the world works.
The second story is part 1 of Deanna knippling’s Paid. Boregard is both a multi-dimensional time traveler or a down and out gum-shoe. Neither and both are correct depending on what version of himself you ask…..
From the BMU Blog, the good and the bad of the shuttle program, what happened to the the six flags left on the Moon, huge thunderstoms on Saturn, a billion pixel camera in space to hunt for new planets, quasars, brown dwarfs and hopefully they will be able to catch a super nova in another galaxy! That and more on this weeks, Beam Me Up.
