Oldest meteorite came from destroyed volcanic planet (science news).

This meteorite stands out as something completely different from any of the over 40,000 meteorites that have been found on Earth, its existence pointing to a missing planet – long destroyed – in our solar system, one developed enough to have had its own volcanic system. https://asunow.asu.edu/20180802-oldest-ever-igneous-meteorite-contains-clues-planet-building-blocks The Offworld Report – the best news offworld […]

Matrix returns with new Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss sequel film (news).

There’s a new Matrix film in the pipe from Warner Bros Pictures with Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss due to reprise their roles. Of course, back in 2003, The Matrix Revolutions kind of killed them both off, which should make a new film rather interesting. Hey, just sprinkled some magic nano-fair dust over the love […]

Disney-Sony feud removes Spider-Man from MCU (news).

The ongoing feud between Disney and Sony has sadly resulted in the Spider-Man licence being yanked from Disney-Marvel and the MCU, which rather leaves the last film ending on an unresolved cliffhanger, not to mention the unmitigated horror of having to face another Sony reboot origin story taking us back to square one.

A Letter Column In The Kingdom Of SFCrowsnest
