My favorite Kickstarter
I know I have ranted over the frustration on space, but this is worth fighting for. It really is frustrating how broken our space exploration system is in terms of leadership (lack there of), budgetary instability (congressional jobs program) and lack of sound project management (orion takes ~15 years from contract to first crewed test flight). will a Chinese space race really be the kick in the pants we need or will those in power continue with the mantra "when China gets to the moon they will see 6 american flags already there"

for those that missed previous rants:
shoot for the Moon short -

+Родерик Рандом the progress on its way. Still no word on why the spacex failed on Sunday. We had plenty of food for a few months so nobody is going hungry just yet.

Is it scalable for long term food production say off the coast of african desert?
“The hope,” writes Gebelhoff, “is that the company’s success so far may lay the foundation for a new form of crop production that can be done without harming the environment.” 

This is fascinating. Even if fails, Gamberini’s project will probably provide a trove of useful data on how to rear crops in a harsh, barren, or otherwise unconventional agricultural environment, be it the ocean floor, or another planet.
Just off the coast of Noli, Italy, tethered twenty feet below the surface of the Mediterranean Sea, hover five bulbous biospheres filled with plants, light, and warm, wet air.

For dessert areas close to water some kind of evaporation decice to make fresh water is probably a better approach.

What are your favorite movies this year so far
of their top ten I have only seen Kingsman (loved it) but hoping to see Inside Out with the kids tomorrow.
Read /Film's list of the top 10 films of 2015 so far, through June 30, from Mad Max: Fury Road to Inside Out. Did your favorite movies make the cut?

If you had a delorean time machine where/when you go?
 
Would we be friends with our parents if we met them as peers?

That loaded question inspired “Back to the Future,” which turns 30 today. https://goo.gl/Nvbvqn

Well a sequel would be enjoyable. Seeing Doc Brown in A Million Ways to Die in the West was such a nice treat! Makes me miss these movies...

I wonder if they will eventually add a star wars themed hotel
Roaming the halls that look like the Tantive IV or death star in separate wings. A mos eisely cantina restaurant and nar shadda shopping center
 
Sounds pretty cool though no more Indy stunt show: (
The Star Wars expansion will include “a Dagobah centerpiece” where Echo Lake and Gertie the Dinosaur currently sit. Star Tours will remain, and other attractions will be added, although no details have leaked yet on those. The Jedi Training Academy will be relocating indoors to an existing building.
Disney is expected to announce a overhaul of their Orlando park at D23. Disney Hollywood Studios Changes could include Star Wars, Pixar and Indiana Jones.

Yes, but I thought that since it was a Spielberg/Lucas co production, that Mouse wouldn't get its paws on him. "Oh, the monopoly!"

Starting next week select Disney store locations will have hand on demo of their new wearable interactive Playmation play sets.
I might have to make a trek up to the galleria fancy mall to check it out.

Anyone see the movie yet?
still not sure why the trailer gave so much away in terms of twists unless that John Connor one is minor.
