Greetings to episode 464 of Beam Me Up.

This week I introduce Charles G Chettiar  with his short story Panic Layer (I play part one)

I start off with a musical select followed by news from the blog: funny video, movie review, Ceres has some weird bright spots, some NASA news and some really fun facts.

Beam Me Up #462 Accidental Death – Peter Bailey

Feb
06

In episode 462 the main story is Accidental Death, a bit of a “flash from the past” from author Peter Bailey.

News from the blog: first off from Kallamus is comments on the Chronicles of Shinara and Star Trek. Next are my observations on “Space 1999” plus where they can play a behind the scenes short, this concerning the intricate modeling of the ships that was done.  Next, with new detectors, it may be within scientists’ reach to observe gravity Waves.

Has the 9th planet truly been discovered?

Carole sent in photos of folks that will most likely be future inductees into the Darwin Awards list.

That about ties it up for another episode.  I hope you enjoy the podcast.

I start with a short talk on NASA for all intents selling off crucial and essential facilities.

Then I am off with a piece of music that could be considered a true birds on a wire.

Then it is off to the first story of the day – Quest by Muzz

Back to the blog I found that the Hugos were out.  However the mood was so negative that
the unthinkable.  I will let you listen to uncover the absolute the total weirdness that was
the 2015 Hugo awards.

I once again have the opportunity to speak about black holes and pocket universes.

The blog:  Sci-Fi Storm gets the down and dirty on some of the shows that did not make the cut.

But the Sci-Fi channel is well on its way to producing some classic science fiction of the past
few years.

Lastly our last story Echo by Alexandra-Grunberg

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 Universe

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

Enjoy

welcome to Beam Me Up, episode 449.

This week I gripe about the lack real news or at least news that isn’t focused on death and depravity!

I take a break and play “Luna Industries” theme music for the movie “Moon”.

From there I found an article describing the sling shot effect that the larger planets have on smaller craft.

The Keplier space telescope has made a startling new discovery.

Finally, David Scholes’ story “Bad Dreams” finishes out the week.

Enjoy

Welcome to Beam Me Up episode 446.

This week I start with a slightly (ok I will admit it….off the wall) musical selection that started as a bet with Joe, a frequent listener. We shall see if I at least captured the spirit….

Next I touch lightly on number bases (like we use a base 10 system, computers use base 1 and ultimately base 8 for bits and bytes) followed by a review of the movie Interstellar.  A movie with an (do I dare???) interstellar cast.  I know, groan…..

Then I traveled onto Mr. Stanger’s excellent story The English Dead.  I was hoping to get the rest of the story done but ran out of time, so we shall include it in 447.

The Plus side is that there were a couple of minutes I could utilize for an additional blog entry, so…..

I saw a short film on Barycentric Systems, which are  how primary and satellite systems behave.

I hope that some of these articles intrigues you.
