2017-03-11T18:49:35+00:00

Usually when ones hears the words "viscous flow" you are not expecting to see something beautiful. No, usually it is preceded by the question: "Does this look infected?" and followed by the answer: "Dude, you should see a doctor." But in this case it's actually quite stunning. Images taken by [...]

2017-02-11T14:09:02+00:00

Goodnight Miss Calabash Nebula, wherever you are! (If you get that joke, congratulations! You're old). So here is another example of the universe being beautiful in the throws of death. I mean, if you're a sun and you're gonna die it might as well be spectacular right? Also, this particular "star [...]

Cosmic Winter Wonderland: NASA Image of the Day

2016-12-29T19:47:04+00:00

Normally I would say something snarky or goofy here but this image speaks for itself really, no need to embellish with my customary silliness. It's stunning. Just a great example of the Universe being awesome. And here, at the end of a particularly terrible, tragic, unhappy year, we could all use a [...]

Delta Redux: A Voyager Rewatch: Maneuvers

2016-12-07T19:24:50+00:00

So I imagine the pitch meeting for this episode went something like this: In the writers room, around a long table, sat several glum and despondent writers desperate for ideas to enliven a plodding series. Suddenly one enterprising (see what I did there?) writer perked and said, "Hey guys, [...]

Delta Redux: A Voyager Rewatch: Cold Fire

2016-08-31T21:35:23+00:00

As I sat and watched Cold Fire I couldn’t help but notice something wasn’t quite right. It wasn’t that this was a bad episode; in fact it had some really good moments and some compelling visuals. It just felt unfinished, as if there was something needed or missing. But then [...]

Delta Redux: A Voyager Rewatch: Persistence of Vision

2016-08-07T19:01:33+00:00

Finally, a good episode. Not a great episode mind you, but an entertaining one. And at this point in the second season I'll take entertaining over pretty much anything. I'll admit I was tempted to let this project go, as you can see from the date on the last entry. [...]
