This week for episode 479, after a short musical interlude, I spend some time on the Beam Me Up blog with articles like the age of the Moon, a loss in the historical NASA astronaut crew and the Air Force’s x37b space plane is due to set new records in mission length.
Finally I read a short story.

Episode 452! Wow! I am constantly amazed that the episodes keep coming out to 1 hour. I keep thinking….it’s going to be late…it’s going to be late and as luck would have it, they come out on time.
My initial offering deals with the SF horror genre taking a major hit this week. two new stories, plus additional material from the blog.
After the opening monologue I give us a taste of Blue Oyster.
Then the first story for the program, In Plain Sight episode #35 and the weirdness is starting to build for our favorite psychic detective Jack Garrett.
Next is a trip through the newest listings on the Beam Me Up blog – Like a rather “twisted” end to a Long March engine, or the research that may shore up the argument that Black Holes may indeed “evaporate”.
finally it is the second story for the afternoon. Child Soldier by J. Alden.

I start the program with a list I love (The Darwin Award) and Joe helped light the fire. Here we are looking at a 20 year study of the award and results.
How about a cut by Patti Smith singing an ode to the passing of the Aqua Aqua Team Hunger Force called Aqua Team Dream?
The first story for the afternoon “A Bright Future” by Jamie Lackey. A good robot story with one of the best realizations of city so sleazy and filthy that you will want to bathe afterwards!
From the blog:
bad news from SyFy
The ending story, “The Oricle is Never Wrong” by Jacey Bedford

Is brainwashing torture? Well it certainly seems that way in Himanshu Goel’s futuristic tale Brainwashing 101
I revisit Bad Dreams again with a lot of local listeners missing the first broadcast, no loss, stories by Dave Scholes are like fine wine “even better with age”
From the blog: a couple of great video sound tracks, really strange Mars picks, Planes that boggle the imagination and conversation points from yours truly.
news from Ed McKeown, a new book “My Outcast State” Now on Amazon.com

Hi, welcome to episode 444 of Beam Me Up After opening, I play a fairly smooth and quiet piece of anime music leading up to the 25th anniversary of Hubble with just a few discussion points concerning Hubble as one of the single greatest research tool of the 20th century.
From the blog a short film on the paradoxes of time travel which proves very funny, New Horizons nears to it flyby of Pluto, I comment on the ultimate failure of Alton Musk’s Falcon booster, Carole sent me an article on electric space craft engine.
Kallimus sends in an article about a new cable program hosted by Neal DeGrasse which sounds fascinating!
There are a few more articles..

Hello and welcome to Beam Me Up episode 443.
This week is a treat, a new story from David Scholes and a fascinating tale from a new writer to BMU Vaughan Stanger.
But first, after the opening monologue I play the opening music to El: called Friendship.
The next order of business is the first story of the afternoon called “Living on Compressed Time” by David Scholes.
After which I skip over to the Beam Me Up Blog where Kallimus reviews the Dare Devil release, I do the Riddick straight to disk “Dark Fury” a piece on how many stars might be visible vs how many there really are.
Which leads us to the final story for the afternoon from new writer Vaughan Stanger called the English Dead.

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!

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

his week I start with the less than enviable task of marking the passing of science fiction’s most favored son, Leonard Nimoy, known to a whole generation as Mr. Spock, of Enterprise and Star Trek fame.
To catch my breath, I play the closing music to the anime series “Good Luck Girl”. I don’t know about you, but I needed something kick ass, just to get running again.
Next, I trundle back to the blog for some other articles of interest.
First off, papers have been filed with arguments against there being a Big Bang. NASA’s Dawn spacecraft is just a few days out from Ceres. I found an article where on the surface it seems like such a simple and straight-forward question. Given that there were no obstacles, would you take a trip into space?
Finally our story for the after-noon is a spooky tale of loneliness and wish fulfillment.
