When Andy Weir published his first novel The Martian a couple of years ago, it went on to become a major best-seller and blockbuster film. His next novel is Artemis, a crime thriller set on the Moon, and New York Comic Con fans have the opportunity to step right into that story. It’s all part of an extensive exhibit put together by Audible to promote the book, entitled The Museum of Artemis: Life on the Moon.

Trump simply can't stop inventing his own reality.
Actual reality so often fails to agree with his ego, after all.

Another recent lie from Trump is one about Obama not calling the families of fallen servicemen.

From the article linked below:

President Donald Trump falsely claimed on Monday that former President Barack Obama didn't call the families of fallen service members.

[Trump]
"If you look at President Obama and other presidents, most of them didn't make calls — a lot of them didn't make calls — I like to make calls when it's appropriate," Trump said at a press conference in the Rose Garden when asked about why he had not addressed the recent deaths of American troops in Niger.

However, a former senior Obama administration disputed Trump's claim.

"President Trump's claim is wrong," the ex-official said. "President Obama engaged families of the fallen and wounded warriors throughout his presidency through calls, letters, visits to Section 60 at Arlington, visits to Walter Reed, visits to Dover, and regular meetings with Gold Star Families at the White House and across the country."

The list of Trump's lies keeps piling higher.

Most Recent Supernova Explosion in the Milky Way - G1.9+0.3 (SNR)

G1.9+0.3 is a supernova remnant (SNR) in the constellation of Sagittarius. It is the youngest known SNR in the Milky Way, resulting from an explosion which occurred some time between 1890 and 1908. The explosion was not seen from Earth as it was obscured by the dense gas and dust of the Galactic Center, where it occurred.

The remnant's young age was established by combining data from Chandra X-ray Observatory and the VLA radio observatory. It was a type Ia supernova.The remnant has a radius of over 1.3 light years.

G1.9+0.3 was first identified as an SNR in 1984 from observations made with the VLA radio telescope. Because of its unusually small angular size, it was thought to be young—less than about one thousand years old. In 2007, X-ray observations made with the Chandra X-ray Observatory revealed that the object was about 15% larger than in the earlier VLA observations. Further observations made with the VLA in 2008 verified increase in size, implying it is no more than 150 years old. A more recent estimate put its age at 110 years as of the data collection in 2008. That study also found that it was probably triggered by the merger of two white dwarf stars.

The discovery that G1.9+0.3 had been identified as the youngest known Galactic SNR was announced on May 14, 2008 at a NASA press conference. In the days leading up to the announcement, NASA said that they were going "to announce the discovery of an object in our Galaxy astronomers have been hunting for more than 50 years." Prior to this discovery, the youngest-known Milky Way supernova remnant was Cassiopeia A, at about 330 years.

One of the strangest objects in the outer Solar System has recently been found to have a ring. The object, named Haumea, is the fifth designated dwarf planet after Pluto, Ceres, Eris, and Makemake. Haumea's oblong shape makes it quite unusual. Along one direction, Haumea is significantly longer than Pluto, while in another direction Haumea has an extent very similar to Pluto, while in the third direction is much smaller. Haumea's orbit sometimes brings it closer to the Sun than Pluto, but usually Haumea is further away. Illustrated above, an artist visualizes Haumea as a cratered ellipsoid surrounded by a uniform ring. Originally discovered in 2003 and given the temporary designation of 2003 EL61, Haumea was renamed in 2008 by the IAU for a Hawaiian goddess. Besides the ring discovered this year, Haumea has two small moons discovered in 2005, named Hi'iaka and Namaka for daughters of the goddess.

This place was one of our more..ahem.. 'interesting' accommodation choices, turned out to be a rather religious institution, whilst nothing wrong with that, it just was not very clear to the average punter looking for a place to stay :) .. luckily for us it was our night off the turps and no mischief to be had ;) ... Ironically I had to throw pebbles at the window to get let back in after my sunset shoot (that was about 11:30 pm :) ) .. musta looked at bit suss :)

For the more paranoid. "On Tuesday, Google announced the launch of a new "advanced protection" setting for Google accounts, which makes it harder than ever for hackers to break into your sensitive data on Gmail, Google Drive, YouTube or any other Google property. The opt-in, ultra-secure mode is intended for truly high-risk users, including those who face the threat of state-sponsored, highly resourced cyberespionage. Think politicians and officials, high net-worth individuals, activists, dissidents, and journalists.

As such, it's a strict and unforgiving system, designed to reinforce every possible weak link that hackers could use to hijack your account. Logging in from a desktop will require a special USB key, while accessing your data from a mobile device will similarly require a Bluetooth dongle. All non-Google services and apps will be exiled from reaching into your Gmail or Google Drive. Google's malware scanners will use a more intensive process to quarantine and analyze incoming documents. And if you forget your password, or lose your hardware login keys, you'll have to jump through more hoops than ever to regain access, the better to foil any intruders who would abuse that process to circumvent all of Google's other safeguards."

On this day:
At 16th October of 1981, Joseph Simmons, Jam Master Jay and Darryl McDaniels, founded the hip hop group Run-D.M.C. The group is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential acts in the history of hip hop culture. Run-D.M.C. is one of the best-known hip hop acts in the 1980's who, along with LL Cool J, The Beastie Boys, and Public Enemy, signified the advent of the new school of hip hop music.

The legendary 80's rap group Run-D.M.C. combined intelligent lyrics with addictive beats and was responsible for popularising rap and hip-hop in terms of the music, lifestyle and popular image. With their trademark gold chains and Adidas sneakers, Run-D.M.C. pioneered the rap art form and became cultural icons along the way. Unfortunately, due to the slaying of one of its members in 2002, the group has called it quits.

Founded in 1981 by Joseph Simmons, Darryl McDaniels, and Jam Master Jay from Hollis Queens, Run-D.M.C. influenced countless hip-hop acts that followed and made the genre hugely successful with crossover audiences. They had known each other as children in the Hollis district of New York City, Master Jay and McDaniels even attending the same kindergarten.

The band signed a record deal with Profile Records in 1983, and Run's older brother, Russell "Rush" Simmons, signed Run-D.M.C. to his newly formed management company Rush Productions that same year. On their first major United States tour, the group set new fads by performing dressed in baggy black clothing, Adidas Sneakers (always with shoelaces removed), and Fedora hats.

Their mainstream success continued as the group performed at the famous Live Aid concert in 1985, and their 1986 album ''Raising Hell'' became the highest-selling rap album in history (this record was later broken as rap gained more popularity with artists like Notorious B.I.G. and Eminem), reaching number 3 on the ''Billboard magazine'' album charts and selling over 3 million copies.

The album featured the famous cover version of Aerosmith's "Walk This Way", a rap-rock collaboration performed with Aerosmith members Steven Tyler and Joe Perry. The song was the first hip-hop track to make the Top 10 on Billboard's singles charts.

Run-D.M.C. were renowned for breaking new ground in rap music. "It's Like That" and "Sucker MC's" (1983) were the first hip hop tracks that relied on electronic beats and nothing else. "Peter Piper" (1986) was the first rap record in which the DJ cut up a record (in this case, "Take Me to the Mardi Gras" by jazz musician Bob James.

Run-D.M.C. became the first rap act with a platinum album and multi-platinum album, as well as the first rappers to appear on the cover of ''Rolling Stone'' magazine, to receive a Grammy nomination and to appear on Saturday Night Live and American Bandstand.

After a period of lackluster commercial success after the ''Raising Hell'' album, the group made a comeback in 1993 with their album ''Down With the King'', which made Billboard's Top 10 for album and the Pete Rock assisted single "Down With the King". Jam-Master Jay was shot and killed in October 2002, leading Run-D.M.C. to announce their retirement.

The key albums in Run-D.M.C.’s catalog: "Run-D.M.C.", "King of Rock", "Raising Hell" and "Tougher Than Leather", were re-released in deluxe editions with bonus tracks in 2005. As new generations discover the old-school sound, Run-D.M.C. continue to receive their due for kicking the rap revolution into high gear.

On April 4, 2009, rapper Eminem inducted them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In doing so, Run–D.M.C. became only the second hip hop group in history to be inducted, after Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five.
