Nuking The Moon by Vince Houghton (book review).

The sub-title of Vince Houghton’s book, ‘Nuking The Moon’ is ‘And Other Intelligence Schemes And Military Plots Best Left On The Drawing Board’. That should point out that this isn’t some mad inventors dreaming up ideas, well, not all the time, but seeking a solution for a war-time problem, often with proper tests before some […]

Avenue 5: new HBO scifi TV series (Love Boat in space?) (trailer).

The Thick Of It creator Armando Iannucci has rather oddly created a new scifi comedy series called Avenue 5, which comes across a little like the Love Boat in space. I suspect, knowing Armando, that this will be more a diatribe on the super-rich wanting to abandon Earth’s poor to its woes and bugger off […]

NASA confirms water vapour from Europa (science news).

Forty years ago, a Voyager spacecraft snapped the first closeup images of Europa, one of Jupiter’s 79 moons.

Alien Vault by Ian Nathan (book review).

If anything, I’m surprised that there hasn’t been an ‘Alien Vault’ before now until I discovered that it was originally printed in 2011 by Voyageur Press. Whether there is any difference between the two editions is hard to say but if you missed it then, now is the opportunity to get a copy. Ian Nathan’s […]
