What Arthur said!

This is precisely the type of story that a Star Trek film should be telling instead of the mindless action film dribble that JJ Abrams is making. 

Paramount seriously needs to consider licensing the Star Trek characters to those who wish to use them in creative endeavours. Make it so people can afford to make stuff. If they make money, then Paramount gets a modest cut without having to put forth much effort. If they don't make money, then no harm, no foul. Let people tell stories and add to the various Trek Universes (even create their own!). We'll all be the richer for it.

This decision has made me decide against subscribing to CBS All Access in order to watch the new Star Trek Series. I'll just download them from the usual sources.

I have actively disliked Paramount ever since they wanted a confiscatory amount for VHS Tapes of the episodes back in late eighties and early nineties and when the DVDs came out. The prices weighed heavily on my decision to go to the black market to obtain episodes. I did buy all the episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise on Amazon Unbox (the forerunner to Amazon Prime -- where they are in my digital library) because the price was the same as other TV Shows.

Well CBS and Paramount, I'll make sure to pirate anything you put out. You won't get a dime from me.

Meanwhile, I'll contribute to a defense fund for these guys if needed. 
While Star Trek: Beyond is grabbing headlines ahead of its premiere next summer, it's not the only Star Trek movie currently in the works. Axanar, a fan-made film set in the same universe as the...

I just love the sense of entitlement that members of the Legacy (Old) Media feel is due them. That makes every digital shovel of dirt that buries them that much more enjoyable.

Almost as fun as watching Nikki and Paulo get their just deserts.

That moment when you realize some program you've downloaded has switched your default search engine from Google to Yahoo and you have to switch it back.

Grrrr.

It could have been worse...it could have been Bing.

Has it been that long ago?

It seems to me that we should be out in the solar system a century hence, with serious interstellar ambitions instead of still being confined at the bottom of our gravity well cradle.
The equation that describes fundamental workings of the universe is as compact and mysterious as a Viking rune.

Listening to the Dan Carlin Hardcore History podcast where he interviewed one of my heroes, James Burke.

James Burke is my favorite public educator.

His current project is called the Knowledge Web.

The website is located at http://k-web.org and the facebook page is at https://www.facebook.com/James-Burkes-Knowledge-Web-1636642569892667/

You can explore that latest iteration of the project at https://webbrain.com/brainpage/brain/C6015FA0-82BF-F1FA-9D05-0EA9FD7F845E#-2751

Bookmarking this for later. Tempted to go for the full-on scratch build instead of going the safer route of ordering the kit...especially since I've never built one before and it's been decades since I built a model.

This is a cool infographic.
 
How many planetary exploration missions are there, and where are they? So many that this planetary scientist has made a chart to track them. (And I know it is way-incomplete!)  You are a member of a civilization that does this -- from pennies per citizen.  We are sending out feelers.  We are growing, at last. Wake up enough to be proud.  And let it motivate you to make others believe, this coming year.

Believe that we are a mighty folk.  Who can.

http://www.planetary.org/blogs/emily-lakdawalla/2015/12311322-planetary-exploration-timelines.html

"We are entering 2016 with 15 spacecraft probably actively returning science data from planets, moons, and smaller bodies in the solar system. (I say "probably" because I don't know for sure what the Chinese lunar spacecraft are doing.) Akatsuki is at Venus, Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and two Chang'e missions at the Moon, two rovers and five orbiters are active at Mars, Dawn is at Ceres, Rosetta is at 67P, Cassini is at Saturn, and although New Horizons is far past Pluto, it'll be sending back new Pluto science data for most of the year, so I'm counting that as still doing science. Another two missions (Hayabusa2 and Juno) are in their cruise phase; Juno arrives at Jupiter in August. Two (ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter and OSIRIS-Rex) or three (if you count the Schiaparelli lander separately) will launch this year, with their science starting after 2016. The Voyagers and other heliophysics missions don't show up on this chart."
How many planetary exploration missions are there, and where are they? These days, it's hard to keep track, because there are so many. I plan to begin the new year by taking stock of active missions, figuring out what each has set out to do and accomplished so far, but first I want to step back to consider the spread of missions across the solar system as a whole.

"If the “industrial” or professional press of the twentieth century constituted a fourth estate, and the new open system of citizens as producers and witnesses now constitutes a fifth estate..."
