Virgin Galactic gets them some astronauts.

Erm: “Virgin Galactic’s tourism spaceship climbed more than 50 miles high above California’s Mojave Desert on Thursday, reaching for the first time what the company considers the boundary of space.”  So does the USAF, dagnabbit.  Heck, the article itself noted that the FAA was going to give the pilots (Mark Stucky and Rick Sturckow) their commercial astronaut wings over this.  There’s been, like, only two of those handed out before now.

Still: this is awesome.  We are long overdue for manned commercial space travel. I want the future that was promised me.

Got in on the Kickstarter. Vintage Worlds: Tales of the Old Solar System are stories about the Solar System as we used to think that it was. To wit: more habitable planets and adventure.  Heh. I had a concept once for GURPS Space where a Precursor species had managed to squeeze at least seventy habitable worlds in a single solar system.  I should see if that could still work…

Patreon Microfiction: Broad-Spectrum Colony.

Ah, “Broad-Spectrum Colony.”  The day may come when I resist the urge to make an obvious pun in the title.  …But it is not this day.

A little housecleaning.

Back in the Time Before, I had a few articles up here involving a particular politician who will remain nameless. Based on current and publicly available information, I no longer wish to have those articles on this website.  Therefore, they are now gone.
