My musical selection was A Glorious Dawn by Symphony of Science.
From the Beam Me Up blog http://wrfrbeameup.blogspot.com/ a couple of

I review “Terminator Genisis”

Hi and welcome to this week’s episode of Beam Me Up. This is episode 442.
Area of discussion this episode is quantum mechanic’s proofs and the many worlds conjecture as a results of one area of quantum “proofs”
I start this episode with a musical name “The Right Time” which was the closing theme for the anime series Paraclete.
The first story this afternoon is episode 34 of Jason Kahn’s “In Plain Sight”
From there, I head it over to the blog for Beam Me Up. This episode starts with the quantum many worlds idea, which is bizarre enough on it’s own right, but when combined with a mathematical proof system, its then that things get well, weird.
I talk for a moment about the “proof of concept” film “Sundays” which of its own right is a wicked powerful as well as a compilation of all that made the sci fi adventure flick entertaining.
There is now mounting proof that super-nova are indeed the things planets are made of. A lot of them!
I found an app that shows all the cyber – well – attack activity around the world and how much is pointed straight at the USA! Not just government but private institutions as well!
and the final story this afternoon is from David Scholes called Deep Web. A strange and weird story about very very deep web sites.
And That is it for episode 442! Enjoy!

Hi, welcome to episode 438 of Beam Me Up. This week, something
slightly different. I had several pieces of stories that by all rights should have played this month. But things being a being as they may, I am catching up on them all.
First off, we have the latest episode in Michael Juby’s Squeek Squeek
series which takes up multi – generational star ships, but with a twist.
Then, from the blog we have an excellent article on quantum spin, this one will spin your brain sideways!
Next up is Jason Kahn’s In Plain View episode 32. I don’t know about
you but I am treasuring each of these episodes.
I review Elfin Lied anime series.
I am forever looking for the short films on YouTube. This episode is no exception. I found simply enough a short called Portal. it is short but very entertaining.
I close with pt3 of Mimsy Were The Borogroves.
This and more. Enjoy!

I open with are review of the science fiction movie Snow Piercer I also note that Chris Hadfield’s version of David Bowie’s Space
Oddity is back on YouTube thanks to the man himself!
First story of the weekend is Episode 30 of the Dark Inspectre Jason Kahn.
From the BMU log:
You can win a ride into space for free! Most stars may not be in a home galaxy… The ISS almost had a close encounter with some space trash. How about an astronomy first? The first ever pictures of a proto, planetary system. And the universe may have started out of nothing?
Final Story Wizard’s Bane ch5 pt1 by CrystalWizard
That’s it! Enjoy

hoooooooooo! Yep it’s that time of the week again. This week – episode 426. This week in my opening comments I discuss the time paradox in A Yankee in King Arthur’s Court. Plus the stunning success of the Indian Mars mission.
My first story of the afternoon is by Jason Kahn and his Darke Inspectre series. Because I dropped the ball in September, and for continuity, I rerun episode 28 and continue straight on to episode 29.
Our next stop is the Beam Me Up blog, The first thing this week, what do you get the nero-scientist that has everything? How about a hard to believe demo of the state of CGI in the industry. SNC is calling foul with NASA’s choice of Space X and Boeing when one of the selected companies was higher in its bid than SNC!
Finally Crystal Wizard’s Wizard’s Bane Book 1 ch4,pt1

My opening comments this week is pointing out some of the thing I like to do that used to be common on the radio and now we hardly hear of any of that. Along those lines I spend time describing what makes Beam Me Up work.
The program proper starts with music: Fight or Flight by Yu Kobiyashi (spell…:( )
Next Jason Kahn’s In Plain Sight episode 27 of the Dark Inspector / In Plain Sight following psyic detective Jack Garrett on New Eden.
Over at the blog – recent discoveries of hot Jupiter like planets have thrown how planets form into flux. This touched a side conversation concerning the incomprehensible distance some of these planets are!
NASA wants private industry to think about doing sat comm for the NASA rovers.
The Voyager argument has once again raised the argument
The final story for the week is Skipping Stones by Devin Miller
Good stories and interesting articles. Hope you enjoy.

Welcome to episode 411 of Beam Me Up. After my opening comments, I
once again play the opening music to the rather calm anime series called Kashima’s Kiss.
I follow this straight up with this month’s Dark Inspectre series, by Jason Kahn. This month – episode 26. Jack has been flat on his back for two episodes so far. He is still recovering from the ambush. The down time does have it’s good side so far as it gives him time to put names to faces, so to speak.
From the blog this week:
NASA is still hoping for favorable weather conditions to launch a huge helium balloon into the stratosphere to test the supersonic parachutes it would like to use on some of the heavy Mars missions Hubble data shows that dwarf galaxies were very important in the early universe.
I close with a great story from Dean Ing called Linger. I asked Dean several years ago if I could read this one but as you know this went to hell in a hand basket there for a while with my health. I already had it recorded so I mixed some tracks and I like the outcome. I hope you do as well.
Thanks for listening.

Hey there! Welcome to Beam Me Up episode 406. This week my opening comment reflect those of Kallimus who is constantly amazed at the capacity of the human animal for stupidity. I use his comments, posted on the Beam Me Up blog, as my opening comments.
I also discover that Dark Inspectre stories have been lacking. So I take the latest installment that played back in December and play that in hopes that it jogs people’s memory and I will start with news installments as soon as I can get them from Mr. Kahn.
Then I move back to the blog for a few of the latest articles that have peaked my interest.
First is a review of a short film on YouTube called Payload…
Then a new product that the inventor says will be the end of food! And you will not believe what they call it!!!
ABC renews Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.! Plus another surprise!
Finally Mr. Scholes changes gears slightly and brings us “Human Hunter” which is a departure from his Trathh series.
There is enough to entertain. I hope you find it as such. Enjoy

On Episode 400 a new Dark Inspectre episode, but first an anime musical track. Then it is straight on to Jason Kahn’s Dark Inspectre In plain sight episode 25.
For the next few minutes I take a moment to share several articles from the blog. Including comments by Kallimus.
I watched the second installation of the Thor franchise and thought it went very vell. So I review the newest episode.
Finally it is Part 2 of Cory Doctorow’s, by his things you will know him.
Thats it for this week. Enjoy!
