Wow, episode 441! Who knew?
This week I open with a foot tapping piece from Ingrid Michaelson called “Time Machine” and if it doesn’t get a foot tapping, your dead!
The first story for the day is from Michael Juby called Timothy’s Offensive Life. A bit of a change up that you are sure to enjoy.
From the blog Finally a representation of light’s dual states. I do a couple of reviews. First is “Earth to Echo” The Dawn spacecraft has arrived at Ceres.
Second movie review is “Wolf Children” is so much better than Earth to Echo.
Wow, have you seen the new promo pic of Super Girl?
“New Generation” by David Scholes is the final story for the afternoon. Hope you 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!

Yep, it is episode 430 of Beam Me Up on a cold and decidedly winterish weekend in Maine.
After my opening comments I play one of the opening pieces of music for the animated series RWBY called This will be the Day by Jeff Williams featuring Casey Lee Williams.
I follow this music with part two of the series Squeak Squeak by Michael Juby.
From the BMU blog I mention the Virgin Galactic space plane failure.
Jarad sends me a couple of links to two extremely well made short films ABE and the other is Blinky. These two are so well made as to be big screen quality. Or how about the TSA agent who confiscated a toy ray-gun belt buckle… John Anealio has a new Halloween themed album out.
The last story for the week is David Scholes Human Hunter – The British facility.
That’s it for the weekend. Enjoy!

My musical selection for the afternoon is BNL’s “The Big Bang”
I speak briefly about Isaac Asimov and John Campbell as their work together. This week chapter four of “The Last Question”
I read the intro from (“my anime guy”) better known as “Mebbles” which he posted on the blog. Mebbles also has some favorite anime music of which I play a selection. For my part, I mention a couple of series that I have have enjoyed over the past few months.
Next on the agenda is chapter 4 of the “Last Question” by Isaac Asimov.
I read “Meebles” introduction letter. (he should prove to be an excellent addition to the staff) plus he includes a fun url for his favorite anime music which I just can’t resist!
I talk about a couple of anime series that I just finished watching.
Kalimus posts a review of Asylum productions newest outing z Nation.
I talk about Dremel’s newest printer which is an affordable 3d printer and how it reminded me of a story by Cory Doctorow.

Well, what do you know, Beam Me Up is in da houuuuuuse!
After my opening comments I play a piece of audio called the speed of dark which is brilliant in it’s explanation of the opposite of lightspeed…
Next is a cut piece of music. It comes from the closing music of the anime series “The Devil is a partimer”
next is the rendezvous of the craft Rosetta as after 10 years has finally caught comet Chury
The final offering this week is the conclusion of Chury called “Double Down on Double by Michael Juby.
Posted in michael Juby, science fiction by beamupadmin| Comments Off on Beam Me Up #418 Double Down on Dublee pt2- Michael Juby
In this week’s opening comments, I marvel at what it takes to get an automated craft to the outer planets, this was in reaction to the upcoming flyby of Pluto and the ESA craft that is fast closing on it’s target comet and marveling at the time and effort that both experiments have had to undergo just to finish their tasks!
I break this flow with a really good music track “collide”. The music itself is a great deal of fun but the strange baseball challenge that this cut is playing to is even more fun. Podcast yes, but do take a trip over to the blog @ wrfrbeamEup.blogspot.com. I often don’t get a chance to read all the articles I have planned, so this would be a good reason to take a jaunt over there.
Before I start with this week’s story, I take my own advice and go looking for highlights on this week’s blog.
I make the suggestion to check out this month’s sky sighting over at Space.com for planets, moon phases and other planetary events.
After reading an article by Jesus Diaz writing for Gizmodo, was marveling at an astronaut floating 200 miles above the planet and I start a conversation of just this sort of amazing eye opener.
The Mars 2020 rover is getting interest and therefor a bit more news, and news about the worlds largest rocket lifting platform.
Finally, part one of Michael Jube’s Doubling Down on Dublee
