Home in a spaceship



Here's a tiny home I would live in. This is a remarkable little house that is shaped like a NASA inspired lunar lander. The lunar lander’s owner and designer, Kurt Hughes, is a boat designer by trade.

He translated his three decades of boat building to home building — in fact, the wooden table in the dining nook is recycled from the Hughes’ first sailboat.



Nestled on the banks of the Columbia River in central Washington, the roughly 250-square-foot home is hexagon-shaped, perched nearly 9 feet above the ground on three massive steel beams.

Interstellar TARS Robot is real


If you are a fan of the movie Interstellar and liked the robot TARS, then you will probably like this. Some robot geeks in Sweden got together and built the real thing. Well sort of. Check out the video below. It is still really cool.



Good job guys!

Anthem Sci-Fi Game from EA looks great!


On a world left unfinished by the gods, humanity struggles to survive in a savage environment. Equipped with incredible Javelin exosuits, a faction known as the Freelancers seeks to tip the balance in mankind’s favor. 


"In the beginning, the Gods harnessed the Anthem. A source of pure creation. Wondrous lands erupted into existence. However, before they could finish their work. They mysteriously vanished. Leaving behind instruments of their creation. 


Those who would seek to harness the Anthem found that it couldn't not be contained. They also found themselves transformed and corrupted. But where there is a will there's a way. And humanity found that way in the form of Javelins. 


Handcrafted armored exosuits that gave us superhuman abilities. The fate of humanity lay in the hands of those who pilot the Javelins. Those brave few known as Freelancers."


Okay, I'm ready! Lets go. This looks like a really cool merger between Sci-Fi and Fantasy. Check out the trailer below if you haven't seen it already.


Nasa Rover Found Ancient Organic Molecules on Mars


Yes, you heard that right. You might have missed this little tidbit of info with all the other crap going on in the world, but this is exciting news, even though most of us probably figured that Mars had organic material there anyway.

NASA’s Curiosity rover has found new evidence preserved in rocks on Mars that suggests the planet could have supported ancient life, as well as new evidence in the Martian atmosphere that relates to the search for current life on the Red Planet. While not necessarily evidence of life itself, these findings are a good sign for future missions exploring the planet’s surface and subsurface.


The new findings – “tough” organic molecules in three-billion-year-old sedimentary rocks near the surface, as well as seasonal variations in the levels of methane in the atmosphere – appear in the June 8 edition of the journal Science.

Organic molecules contain carbon and hydrogen, and also may include oxygen, nitrogen and other elements. While commonly associated with life, organic molecules also can be created by non-biological processes and are not necessarily indicators of life.

“With these new findings, Mars is telling us to stay the course and keep searching for evidence of life,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters, in Washington. “I’m confident that our ongoing and planned missions will unlock even more breathtaking discoveries on the Red Planet.”



“Curiosity has not determined the source of the organic molecules,” said Jen Eigenbrode of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, who is lead author of one of the two new Science papers. “Whether it holds a record of ancient life, was food for life, or has existed in the absence of life, organic matter in Martian materials holds chemical clues to planetary conditions and processes.”

Although the surface of Mars is inhospitable today, there is clear evidence that in the distant past, the Martian climate allowed liquid water – an essential ingredient for life as we know it – to pool at the surface. Data from Curiosity reveal that billions of years ago, a water lake inside Gale Crater held all the ingredients necessary for life, including chemical building blocks and energy sources.



“The Martian surface is exposed to radiation from space. Both radiation and harsh chemicals break down organic matter,” said Eigenbrode. “Finding ancient organic molecules in the top five centimeters of rock that was deposited when Mars may have been habitable, bodes well for us to learn the story of organic molecules on Mars with future missions that will drill deeper.”




Mortal Engines Teaser from Director Peter Jackson Looks Insane! Updated!


Mortal Engines By Philip Reeve Predator Cities 7 Books Collection Box Set. Mortal Engines is the first book in the series that focuses on a futuristic, steampunk version of London, now a giant machine striving to survive on a world running out of resources. The book has won several awards. Today, they just released a new full trailer and it looks killer! (New Trailer at the bottom of the page)



The book is set in a post-apocalyptic world, ravaged by a "Sixty Minute War", which caused massive geological upheaval. To escape the earthquakes, volcanoes, and other instabilities, a Nomad leader called Nikola Quercus installed huge engines and wheels on London, and enabled it to dismantle (or eat) other cities for resources. 


David Wyatt and Philip Reeve have also been collaborating on a graphic novel version of the story.

The technology rapidly spread, and evolved into what is known as "Municipal Darwinism". Although the planet has since become stable, Municipal Darwinism has spread to most of the world except for Asia and parts of Africa. Much technological and scientific knowledge was lost during the war. 


This is more of David Wyatt illustrations for the Philip Reeve's story.

Because scientific progress has almost completely halted, "Old Tech" is highly prized and recovered by scavengers and archaeologists. Europe, some of Asia, North Africa, Antarctica, and the Arctic are dominated by Traction Cities, whereas North America was so ravaged by the war that it is often identified as "the dead continent", and the rest of the world is the stronghold of the Anti-Traction League, which seeks to keep cities from moving and thus stop the intense consumption of the planet's remaining resources.

Peter Jackson presents an epic new saga. 




Thousands of years after civilization was destroyed by a cataclysmic event, humankind has adapted and a new way of living has evolved. Gigantic moving cities now roam the Earth, ruthlessly preying upon smaller traction towns. Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan)—who hails from a Lower Tier of the great traction city of London—finds himself fighting for his own survival after he encounters the dangerous fugitive Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar). Two opposites, whose paths should never have crossed, forge an unlikely alliance that is destined to change the course of the future. 



Mortal Engines is the startling, new epic adventure directed by Oscar®-winning visual-effects artist Christian Rivers (King Kong). Joining Rivers are The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies three-time Academy Award®-winning filmmakers Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, who have penned the screenplay. The Universal and MRC adaptation is from the award-winning book series by Philip Reeve, published in 2001 by Scholastic. On board as producers are Zane Weiner (The Hobbit trilogy), Amanda Walker (The Hobbit trilogy) and Deborah Forte (Goosebumps), as well as Walsh and Jackson. Ken Kamins (The Hobbit trilogy) joins Boyens as executive producer. Universal will distribute the film worldwide. www.mortalengines.com

Destiny 2: Forsaken is coming


Bungie will fully unveil the latest expansion for Destiny 2 Tomorrow on, June 5, but before we’re given the details of the project, we at least know its name - Destiny 2: Forsaken is coming later this year, and it appears to focus on the Fallen race.

A short teaser video for Destiny 2: Forsaken was posted on Bungie’s Twitter account, with comic relief character Cayde-6 landing with another Guardian on the Reef location from the first Destiny. The base game didn’t include any real missions taking place in the area, but a Crucible map called “The Drifter” was released with The Taken King.

Destiny 2: Forsaken is likely going to release this September. Check out the teaser below.
