Announcement : Void Voyage 1 is Comming Soon!

Art by Danyasaur It started with a simple idea really.  One city-sized ship leaves the solar system to explore the stars.  Men and women live, and die aboard it.  Their children’s children will be born before they reach one of many interstellar destinations.  In this way I imagine mankind might explore the heavens. I spoke…

The Future Above

You are not looking at a cloudy sky.  This is the Reflection Nebula captured by the Hubble Space Telescope near the end of the Millennium.  You can find more pictures like this at the Hubble Heritage Project.

A Nerd-Rage Rant! Subject: Spelling lessons

Where are my pocket protector and glasses? Ah there we go.  Now onto the rage! As many people already know, the SciFi Channel has done some creative spelling to change its name to the super cool-beans Syfy Channel.  Every nerd I’ve talked to has felt the same way I do about the change.  And we…
