A different way of looking at a "problem." →
I know this has been a theme as of late but I find it imported. Celiia Friedman linked this to me. She is great and she thinks about this when she is writing which I find is way cool! http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/1276004.C_S_Friedman
Disability Technology that is awesome! →
Thinking outside the box could not only help people that have had life altering events but could also help develop some “iron man” like technology for those who are less physically restricted.
Are you ready for the zombie apocalypse? →
OhhHhhHhh... Planets like earth, only better? →
By Denise Chow, SPACE.com ”Super-Earth: The newfound haul of alien planets includes 16 super-Earths, which are potentially rocky worlds that are more massive than our planet. One in particular has captured astronomers’ attention because it orbits at the edge of its star’s habitable zone, suggesting conditions could be ripe to support life. “ I am distressed...
Turning a "Disability" into opportunities →
Disability = not able = insufficient = broken = useless… No one wants to say it but that is what people tend to think, the word itself guides us into that logic path. And when you say or call someone “Differently Able” people tend to think your some sort of liberal freak who fails to see the reality of the situation… Science Fiction tends to take a different view on...
Brown Dwarf? →
When I took undergrad astronomy I didn’t think we had ever found a Brown Dwarf? Maybe I just wasn’t paying close enough attention on that day, or maybe I am starting to get old. Never the less it is interesting, I believe i saw a few star trek episodes about planets like this when I was a kid. “We might be looking at a gigantic storm raging on this brown dwarf, perhaps a...
My pants are a security risk? →
My pants are a secretly risk? Again, these things are talked about in science fiction long before they become real, how odd! It is kind of like they are thinking of future possibilities and their consequences. …. I personally don’t think pants should tweet my location, but then again I have a Facebook not a twitter account and I don’t do play by plays of my location. Partly...
Science Fiction is a way of thinking...
Celiia Friedman told me that “Science fiction is a way of thinking.” She explained to me that it is looking at future development and following it through a series of logical paths and their consequences. My end goal has to, not should, embody this. My end goal has to, not should, embody this. My goal from the start has been to find/gain/create/ be able to go up to an organization...
FASTER then Light! →
Some feisty subatomic particles seem to have beaten the speed of light! Take that conventional wisdom! Now no one can say that nothing can go faster than light! True, this still is not enough to develop a warp core BUT it is enough to devote research to uncover basic principles that may LEAD to things like warp cores being developed! Not holding my breath, I think this is like Mendel and his...
Twin Suns →
Have we found Tatooine? Well maybe not, but we are finding more and more fascinating alien worlds.
Challenges and roadblocks: Victories and Snipe...
For the last month I have been working on contacting Science Fiction authors in order to get interviews with them. I assumed a high failure rate, not being able to find emails for example, but after going through a list of 300 names, finding emails for about 30 authors and only having less than 10 respond, well lets say it can get a little discouraging. The good news is that the authors who have...
