    Apollo astronaut interview about B612 and NEOs

    I'm the Science Editor of Perihelion Science Fiction
    www.Perihelionsf.com, a professional free online
    science fiction magazine in the pulp tradition.

    This issue I interview Rusty Schweickart, an Apollo astronaut
    and write about NEOs (Death Stars) and B612.
    http://www.perihelionsf.com/article_2.htm

    On the 12th it will go into our archives but will still be available online for free.

    I thought this might be of interest to CosmoQuest members since it is free to read.

    Please note that this was originally posted by new member perihelion, but because of some weirdnesses with merging the threads, I've re-entered it such that it looks like I am the originator of it.

    Very nice. Thanks for sharing, perihelion.
    So many bugs, so little time.

    I note that evidence, proof, lack of evidence, and the question of just what constitutes science lie at the heart of many discussion threads.
    I wrote a recent piece on just what constitutes science.

    There is a surprising amount of bad science out there.

    I'll add the official CQ blog. Astronomycast.com, too if I am plugging things.

    Jodcast is an astronomy podcast which is very nice. Some of the archives are in Spanish too. Science@NASA is has a ton of content. StarTalk Radio is another podcast.

    Back to blogs - The Noisy Astronomer and Dear Astronomer.

    The line between blogs and podcasts are blurry to me.

    Science on the ISS (International Space Station)

    Hi,

    We started a new podcast called Science on the ISS. We even mention the Cosmoquest Forum in Episode 10.

    You can find it on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/...14234764?mt=2\
    or just go to the Feedburner listing: http://www.cheapastro.com/SISSfeed.xml

    Science on the ISS: making sure the science going over your head, doesn't go over your head.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Weird Astronomy

    Good Morning Everyone!

    As my first post on this forum, I wanted to share with you a fun, adult-oriented (based on language) project I've been working on in the field of astronomy.

    It's the, "Weird Astronomy" series on Youtube, available here:

    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...YhNp1v3jh1jMe_

    To sum up, I do weird or silly things like eat a scorpion, take an ice bath, get drunk and discuss and aspect of astronomy for viewers.

    If you don't learn anything new, you should at least get a good laugh! Enjoy and let me know your thoughts!
