BMU #332 Now On Line

For some reason, mainly not paying attention, the newest episode 332 was labeled 331 even though all the links went to 332 it could have led to some confusion so I have updated the file title.  Sorry for the confusion.

Here is episode 332 of Beam Me Up, for your enjoyment!

 yaaaeeeeee are we excited yet? Wow, tough crowd.... Well, anyway, I warm up with an oldie, Thomas Dolby's She blinded me with science.

Next is the first story of the afternoon, Mark Webb's The Gloriously Cunning plan which demonstrates that even the best laid plans can often be unraveled when one does not take in crucial facts.

Up next is Star Trek Trivia with two new trivia questions!

Ok, now on to the BMU blog!

Have you heard about planet Nibiru? If no, then listen to with Earth Sky article I found!

I rented both of the animated Ultimate Avengers animated straight to disk movies. The first movie in particular really followed the Marvel Avenger history line.

Check out my reviews of both movies on disk. And on the ISS, NASA, with shades of Apollo 13, two EVA astronauts assure the continuation of some of the critical systems with some unusual parts!

Is FTL possible? NASA steps back and rethinks it's position as some high level mathematics which, on paper, seem to show that it might just be possible with far lower energy requirements than was previously calculated!

And finally, part 5 of Edward McKeown's The Dive. Enjoy!

Great to hear the late Professor Magnus Pyke on Thomas Dolby's "She Blinded Me With Science" again. He used to be interviewed regularly on British TV whenever they wanted a scientific principle explaining in layman's terms and usually succeeded, waving his arms around all the time like some demented windmill...........

At least I caught it...well, not before Webb already linked to it! Got to stop sleeping while I am posting!

Bishop, thanks for weighing in!
Oh that sounds like a hoot! Great fun when someone who really knows their subject and are capable of expressing it to lay people. I honestly think of this as a test of how well you understand your subject, if you can explain it and make it understood by someone who has no experience in that field. Thanks for the note! Glad to have you aboard.
