Weekly Rundown

     Or at least hasn't for a very long time. Around 2 billion years any way. There's a new video out from the LRO's (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter), data collecting of the moons coldest and darkest craters.
     The LRO helped confirm the presence of water on the moon. The 504 million dollar project including a laser ranging device that is used to create the best topographical maps of these shadowed regions. The video itself is worth going to the site to see. It's only about 2 and a half minutes long, but still cool.

     Billionaire Jeff Bezos has been backing a salvage crew on the ocean floor. They have been recovering components from the Staurn 5 engines that powered the Apollo moon missions. 
     He made this statement on Wednesday.  "We've seen an underwater wonderland — an incredible sculpture garden of twisted F-1 engines that tells the story of a fiery and violent end, one that serves testament to the Apollo program." The first link is to the article with pictures underwater and an board ship after recovery of pieces, and the second is to where it shows pictures of the original engine in one piece as well. 

     Michigan has given Bay 20 million dollar incentive to start filming Transformers 4. And from what is being said now, it will continue on, and not be a reboot. This is what is now being reported as the plot outline. 
     "As humanity picks up the pieces, following the conclusion of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet. However, a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his cross hairs  The epic adventure and battle between good and evil, freedom and enslavement ensues."
     I am wondering if this ancient evil is someone we all know already. Could be Unicron is the main guess right now. It's Bay, who knows. 

    Benedict Cumberbatch may not sound like the Khan we all knew and loved, but if that is who he is, well the new version would be much closer to what was originally said about that character. Nothing has been said for certain, and it is still listed as rumor, but I don't see who else he could be.  Anyway, check out the link which has the latest international trailer on it. It's not on IMDB yet anyway. Personally, I'm waiting fro this one this year. 

     And that's it for me this week. Not enough info on the possible reboot of He-Man to say anything yet. Though I would like to see it done, and even though there is talk of bringing back Dolph, I'm guessing it would only be as maybe the king. Lets be serious, he's not He-Man any more.
