Today’s episode of Minutes at the Edge is a very happy one. I talk about the New Horizon mission to Pluto, the discoveries made and the geek fest the people at NASA had naming the geological structures they found on Pluto and Charon.
Please enjoy this shiny podcast!
And here are some links for further reading (all highly recommended):
There are some questions people do not like to ask. Others are too horrific to be even considered by sane minds. Well, since I am on the mad scientist side of life, or fancy myself to be there anyway, I guess that counts, I can consider the following:
Let us presume the following. There is a zombie apocalypse on earth. In the middle of it, an alien spacecraft crashes onto a continent, its crew slain by Xenomorphs. The xenomorphs spread out, the queen on board starts laying eggs. A hapless group of zombie apocalypse survivors stumbles upon the queen’s lair, or gets dragged there by some Xenomorphs, and they have facehuggers attached to them. A few days later, the chestbusters burst out, killing the survivors.
Now it gets interesting: Due to the effects of the zombie apocalypse, the chestburster victims do not simply die but turn into zombies. Would those zombies regard the chestbursters as offspring or pets and could they form loving and caring relationships. I.e. the zombies take care of the very young chestbursters which in turn protect their zombies once they have become fully grown Xenomorphs.
Could Xenomorphs and zombies be the mutual key to the survival of both species? Just asking…
And we need it to get rid of all the snow we got last night!
What in Cthulhu’s name is going on? In March, we had 20°C around these parts, and now we have snow outside and it is freezing! I guess this year we will have to repaint our easter eggs in winter-camouflage-pattern.
And I had something like this in mind:
But the poor things would be uncomfortable outside right now.
So, no xenomorph-egg-hunts today, let’s see what next year brings.
