Despite a forward-looking and overall healthy NASA planetary science program budget, two on-duty spacecraft are now on the chopping block.

In the 1960s and 1970s, the United States attempted to improve the image of nuclear bombs by using them for public works. This went about as poorly as you'd suspect.

+James Sterrett your analysis is the reason why Steve Jackson had to postulate biphase-carbide armor (nuke-proof armor).

Enemy tank company is too spread out to be worth expending a nuke on.

But an Ogre is a concentration of military power very much worth spending a nuke on.

Watch SpaceX Test its Amazing SuperDraco Rockets from a Few Feet Away
As reported by The Verge: The Space Shuttle was cool in action, but on paper it sounded like a particularly capacious way to get to work in the mornings. Spaceships should really have cooler names. Elon Musk's SpaceX understa...

My very first product was the Relativistic Rock tee shirt. It's been out of print for a few years, and we've brought it back for the Kickstarter here:

A Scientist Bought the Wrong Brand of Kitty Litter, Caused a Nuclear Accident. "Kitty litter is used as a stabilizing agent in nuclear storage—silicates in cat litter stabilize radioactive nitrate salts. If the salts aren’t stabilized before they dry out, they can eventually overheat and release dangerous gases." Lesson: don't buy organic litter for your nuclear waste storage. http://motherboard.vice.com/read/a-scientist-bought-the-wrong-brand-of-kitty-litter-caused-a-nuclear-accident
The Department of Energy says an organic brand of kitty litter caused an accident at a nuclear waste facility in New Mexico last year.

They actually use commercially sold cat litter for nuclear waste storage? That sounds like an unimaginably bad idea. Why not simply get the actual raw materials that you need, instead of a commercial product that (hopefully) contains them?

So will the germbot last longer than the man made sensor? What kind of food does it eat? And, is it contagious?

The Folio Society is doing a gorgeous new edition of Frank Herbert's Dune, and we were excited to show you the front cover a while back. But just wait until you get a load of the interior art, also created by artist extraordinaire Sam Weber. [Warning: One picture might be NSFW.]

Next to Armor, The Mote in God's Eye, and Tactics of Mistake, this has always been one of my all-time favorites.

Trope-a-Day: The Neutral Zone

The Neutral Zone: Played straight, although given the nature of the stargate plexus as, essentially, a mesh network, it’s not so much a zone, but a list of Neutral Nexi.  No-one tries to enforce deep space as a neutral zone, mostly because it’s just too…
