Since I’m in the middle of a big push to finish Terminal Velocity, there won’t be a whole lot of blog pontificating going on here for the next several weeks. Sorry, but there’s only so much time in the day.
To fill the void, I’ll be posting links to stories that catch my interest. Hopefully they’ll catch yours as well. If something really interesting happens, I might even comment on it (surely the suspense is killing you).
I can hear it now: “Nope, it’s not killing me, and don’t call me Shirley.”
So here’s what’s going on in our world today…
Giant killer asteroids to barely miss Earth tonight. Sleep well, kiddies.
Robert Ballard finds evidence of Noah’s Flood. In case you ever thought wayward asteroids were our only problem.
Elon Musk on Mars and Interstellar travel. Nope, he’s not building a warp drive anytime soon.
Michigan becomes a right-to-work state, predictable
hilarity violence ensues. Seriously? If your little club is so friggin’ awesome, why do you need the force of law to retain dues-paying members? Welcome to the free market, beeches.
Behind the yoke of Boeing’s new 787 Dreamliner. Yeah, I’d take one.
Why going to the trouble of hiking and camping is worth it. Because nature rocks.
How little we really know about dinosaurs. And by extension, our own world. What might we imagine present-day animals to be if they had to be reconstructed from the same available fossil record? Hint: tree-climbing goats. But no sharks with frickin’ lasers…again.
Wrath of Khan character officially revealed for Star Trek Into Darkness! Sadly, it’s not the one we’re all hoping for. Yet.
P.S. And if you’re looking for some good holiday reading, Perigee is only 99 cents this week!
