iO9 was quick off the mark in relation to stories set in the Alpha Centauri system with this list of ten. I?d forgotten the Songs of Distant Earth was set there – perhaps Clarke?s last good novel. John Barnes and Buzz Aldrin?s Encounter at Tiber was pretty good. I?d forgotten the aliens in Footfall by […]A

As seen on the Charles Stross blog, there?s some scepticism as regards the likelihood of interstellar travel anytime soon by probe. That said here?s a bunch of optimists – the Breakthrough Starshot project? …a proof-of-concept fleet of light sail spacecraft, named StarChip,[1] capable of making the journey to the Alpha Centauri star system, 4.37 light-years […]A

Saw them last night on the Dublin leg of a two date tour of Ireland, Limerick it was on Thursday. Part of their 40th anniversary tour too. They were at the Academy and excellent. I first saw them in 1985 in the SFX (the point was made to me that was both 31 years ago […]A

So, astronomers have discovered a planet orbiting the closest star to the Sun. Proxima Centauri b is thought to be a little larger than the Earth, to orbit one hell of a lot closer to its star than the Earth does to the Sun and yet due to the nature of that star to receive […]A

The week where a planet is discovered in that remarkably complex system is a good one to look at it a bit more closely. Here?s wiki?s overview on it. When I say complex I mean it. There?s three stars in the state, A, B and Proxima Centauri where the planet has been discovered. Isn?t it […]A

There was a piece in The Guardian about bands that split in half SLF, Yes and UB40 are mentioned there but of course there are others. Boney M at one stage had more than 2 versions going. There were two versions of the Wolfetones touring, Queensryche are another band that had two versions going. Black […]A

There?s something entertainingly hypocritical about Nigel Farage campaigning for Donald Trump in the US Presidential Election. Where now all the complaints about Obama commenting on the Brexit referendum, where now the complaints about interfering in the sovereign affairs of a foreign state. And even were he to say, well, they started it, it does – […]A

Speaking of that a week or two ago, what about this instance, covered by David Mitchell. In case you missed them, here are those unjust ramifications again. 1) Of the late duke?s [of Westminster] approximately £9bn, approximately £0bn goes to the taxman. I?m sure the Treasury gets some money, but nowhere near a billion quid, […]A

An interesting point made in Mary Regan?s piece in the SBP this last weekend where she considers the political upheavals in this and other states across the last few years. She notes that despite the ?civil-war parties? losing 30% of their share of the vote since the 1980s, dipping from 80% to 50% (entertaining to […]A
