We interrupt your daily deluge of Android news and reviews for this special, semi-Android-related announcement.

Yeah, this is mandatory.
 
Interesting Back to the Future and the tech of 2015 Kickstarter
In 1989 Robert Zemekis and his team released the sequel to the immensely successful film ‘Back to the Future’. In this new adaptation the main characters travel to the future, specifically to the year 2015, and experience all kinds of weird and wonderful inventions that the production team imagined would be present in the then, distant future. 

Turn the clock forward 25 years and we are only a short time away from living in the very future that Doc Brown and Marty McFly travelled to. But when we get there, what will we expect? How far off is the flying car? Do sports shoes with electric laces really exist? And what about the infamous Hoverboard? 

‘Back to the Future Again’ takes a eye-opening look at the progress of science and compares it to the creative vision that Robert Zemekis, Bob Gale and their team had back in 1989. 

Featuring interviews from the original crew, and from modern day experts, 'Back to the Future Again' will transport the viewer on a quest to see if the world of the film is anywhere close to our world now. 

It’ll be fun, enlightening and filled with ‘Back to the Future’ wonder. Anyone who enjoys the ‘Back to the Future’ franchise won’t want to miss this.

This is a micro-lecture using descriptive animation to explain relativity. 
 
Wrap your mind around time dilation
This is a wonderful video from +Sixty Symbols that helps you wrap your brain around the concept of time dilation.

I'm sure you've heard that if you travel close to the speed of light, time changes for you compared to a reference place back at home. If you've just taken it on faith, and could never understand why this happens, I high recommend you watch this video.

When I first learned this thought experiment in university (although it was Einstein in a train), it was a total clarifying moment.

Decisions about both the 2014 and 2015 budgets are happening soon and The Planetary Society has made it easy for your voice to be heard, even if you aren't a U.S. citizen. Casey Dreier explains why that's important and why we're writing the President (& Congress) Now!

These legs creep me out a bit. They remind me of that one movie with the aliens whose legs bend backwards.
 
NASA engineers are developing climbing legs for the International Space Station's robotic crewmember Robonaut 2 (@AstroRobonaut, or "R2"), marking another milestone in space humanoid robotics. The legless R2 is currently attached to a support post, undergoing experimental trials aboard the orbiting laboratory. These new legs will provide R2 the mobility it needs to help with regular and repetitive tasks inside and outside the space station. The goal is to free up the crew for more critical work, including scientific research. Read all about it: http://go.usa.gov/Whdj
