Astronaut Steve Robinson skipped calling Home Depot and went out and did some repairs himself. Unfortunately, it sounds like he may have to go back out tomorrow.
Mars has gas - but where is it getting its Pepcid?
At WorldCon in Glasgow, they seem to be of two minds of the current state of sci-fi - on one hand, this quote from one of my favorite authors, Neil Gaiman:
"There was a battle for the minds of the world and we appear to have won it. And now we need to figure out what we're doing next."
And then this one, from Christopher Priest:
"I don't think of myself as a science fiction writer but I wouldn't deny it," he says. "But there are some people who only have to hear it's SF and you hear the crash of a mind closing. Margaret Atwood, for instance, writes really quite good science fiction but will not say the name."
Sci-fi - the evil that dare not speaketh its name.
