Here we are for another week of Beam Me Up. This Week episode 397. After my
opening comments I play another track from John Anelio’s Walk the Fire album.
This Week’s cut, “Stuck at the Bottom of the Mine”.
I have been doing Star Trek trivia for some time, but it IS wearing a bit
thin, so I have swapped in some Twilight Zone odd facts which seem to be many!
Off to the Beam Me Up blog:
First is a review of the animated feature “The Croods”
Early Solar system dynamics were pretty chaotic with the gas giants doing a
dance through the inner system!
I have a link to one of the most clever short films
Plus the funniest rip on the early Batman & Robin feature film, all the
incontestability and just plain WRONG material, this short actually makes the
older film more enjoyable!
The Sierra Nevada corp uncovers it’s Dream Chaser, a reusable lifting body,
which will help deliver men and supplies to the ISS.
and our story for this week….KS Dearsley’s “The pitch”

This week on Beam Me Up episode 359, I am kind of all over the place. After the intro for this week’s program I read Kallamis’ weekly rundown of the events in science and science fiction that Kallamis has found interesting, from flights to the ISS to strange metorites and Independance Day sequals. It turns out that Independence Day is one of Xnewsman’s favorites for a couple of scenes in the movie.
From here I read our first of two stories.
The first is a melacoly tale from K. A. Dearsley called Salvage.
Next I serve up some Star Trek trivia With such diverse questions as Tribble origin’s to the original first episode.
I have some Earth_Sky news with some new Milky Way news and a mysterious ring system forming in a distant section of our Milky Way galaxy.
And while we are on the subject Courtney sent in an article describing a most unusual black hole / star pairing where the gravity around the black hole is whipping the star around in an orbit of over 1 million miles per hour!
To finish off the hour, I read part 5 of Know How – Can Do by Michael Blumlein.
and th th th th that’s all folks!

This week on episode 348 of Beam Me Up: after an opening track I review Dark Knight Rises.
After the review, I read read the 2012 Darwin award nominations. If you are not familiar with the award, these are given to people who voluntarily remove themselves from the gene pool and do so in a particularly stupid fashion.
I find an article suggesting that there are many sol class stars and a great majority contain Earth class planets.
From there I get in a few Earth Sky articles. This week there is some really great articles on comets!
One of the very first extra-solar planets that was ever photographed has been confirm! It has again been photographed in the sun’s huge debris ring.
Information on the new “pelican” LTA vehicle that look very much like a ufo and the Pentagon says that it well could be an “intelligence” platform…hummm
I close this week’s program with as story by K.S. Dearsley
