The Power Of Light Works
July 2019
LightSail 2 is changing its orbit using only the power of sunlight. The Planetary Society announced this week that their LightSail 2 solar sail is working well, and actually raising the orbit of the spacecraft as it travels around the Earth. According to mission managers, they've been able to raise the orbit of the spacecraft by about 2 kilometers at the high point of its orbit. Unfortunately, they'll only be able to go for about a month before the sail dips into the atmosphere at the low point of its orbit and it crashes.
Sci-Fi Writers Include Religion
October 2018
At his appearance at the American Writers Museum in Chicago, John Scalzi said that it is important that science fiction writers include religion in their universes, "When 5 billion people out of 7 billion very strongly have professed religious belief of some sort or another, to ignore it, minimize it or just say it doesn't matter is foolish," he said.
Jesus Wuvs Me
Worldling
Jesus wuvs me, yes, it's true,
And you should know he wuvs you too.
The bible tells us that it's so,
And that is all we need to know.

Jesus Wuvs Me

I have a teddy, soft and brown,
I cuddle him when I'm feeling down.
But sometimes teddy's not enough,
That's when I'm glad of Jesus' wuv.

Jesus wuvs me, yes, it's true,
He watches everything I do.
Though grown-ups say it is not so,
What the heck do grown-ups know?

The grown-ups say we're not so great,
We're just some kind of evolved ape.
They also say something much worse:
We're not the centre of the universe!

But Jesus wuvs me, come what may,
I don't care what the grown-ups say.
I look at the sky, and it is clear,
The universe's centre's here!

Yes, Jesus made it all for us,
From black holes, to the platypus.
We don't know yet what each thing's for,
But it's all for us, of that I'm sure.

'Cos Jesus wuvs me, yes he does,
And it gives me such a buzz.
He created everything you see,
And I know Him personally!

It makes me feel so very big,
To be friends with such a big bigwig.
I look at the stars, and it's plain to see,
The centre of the universe is me.

Oh, Jesus wuvs me! Wuvs me! Wuvs ME!
He makes me feel so warm and wuvvely!
I hope that you wuv Him as well,
Or else you're going to burn in Hell.
