This is absolute truth
 
Found this gem in a comment on /r/KerbalSpaceProgram... I'm not the author but I thought I'd share.

Looks like Interstellar is only up for technical / sound Oscars.

On the one hand, I'm amazed. 

It is everything the literate SF crowd says they like. A human story about love. It is also full of wonder, hope, and transcendence.

It is as technically rigorous as anything 2001 aspired to, without the pacing issues, and far more human engagement.

It is the only three-hour film I know that has kept members of my family, SF geek or not, of all philosophical stripes, glued to their seats without a bathroom break, often more than once. It is the only movie many of them have seen more than once in the theaters, and one of a VERY small handful for me.

On the other hand, I'm not entirely surprised. Having read mainstream reviews where this already long movie was excoriated for - among other things - not taking the opportunity to implicate humans for messing up the planet and showing us how to fix it instead of escaping, it has also inspired as much hate in some places as it has love in others. The reasons for the dislike, when stated, are often ideological. Others, in the nitpicking of plot holes that aren't, show a profound lack of understanding of the science they otherwise claim to "F*cking love!"

In either case, I'm getting my own copy ASAP, to sit next to Guardians of the Galaxy.

You often can tell a lot about a book from its cover, and a lot about a person from how they choose to present themselves.

So - somewhere or other, again, I heard the expression "don't judge a book by its cover!"...

Gorgeous - an utterly stunning rendition of Saturn and its moons, using original probe imagery as its source to generate textures/etc.

What else to say? Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi obviously - and I agree - thinks that "not all muslims" are like that, but like others who've been ignored over the past few decades that have come from that tradition and criticized it, sees something in the system of thought and interpretations of the last few centuries as being antithetical to peace and order.
Prior to Paris terror attack, Egyptian president warned imams of dangers of extremism.

Finally have it all organized. Additional player charts are printed, as well as SSD's on cardstock. Tabs are set for each group of ship SSD's. All the aids are in protective sleeves, with dry erase markers for marking them up. Chits are organized (and the bins labeled).

No more hours wasted trying to find all the needed chits for a game! (I have no idea how much time was wasted in HS going through a pile of chits for this and Panzerblitz....)

I'm debating when I want to take apart the rule book and have it in there, complete with sectional tabs, ready for the advanced rules to be inserted. 

Now to finish getting the rules under my belt.

Such and AWESOME game! I have two paper-reem boxes full of old SSD's. I think I even have the 1" color ship counter some place.

Gotta love those XKCD infographics
 
Just what we’ve always wanted! Via xkcd – the size and scale of rockets and spacecraft throughout history, measured in horses. And dogs. http://xkcd.com
