Russian bio-weapons plague-lab burns down (science news).

Here’s a rather less than scintillating science news story which sounds like the prologue to that bit in World War Z where Brad Pitt gets landed in Russia with a special forces team to search a half-destroyed lab building for the cure to the zombie outbreak.

Stephen King and Joe Hill seed some horror for Netflix in, ‘In The Tall Grass’ (trailer).

Inferno Revealed: From Dante To Dan Brown by Deborah Parker and Mark Parker (book review).

Bridging the gap between literary criticism aimed at scholars and the readers of mass market fiction of the sort Dan Brown produces isn’t easy. Virtually nothing about Danté’s ‘Inferno’ is accessible by modern standards, not least of all because very few people read epic poetry of any sort, much less those written in medieval Italian. […]

Is Space Tourism about to lift off? (video documentary)

How about a trip to Vigin’s Spaceport USA in New Mexico – chatting to the team behind Virgin Galactic – and discovering a little more about their madcap scheme to send tourists into space.
