    Kepler-186f, shown in this artist’s concept, is the first Earth-sized planet discovered in its star’s habitable zone. Credit: NASA Ames/SETI Institute/JPL-Caltech


    From a comic book nerd perspective, it's neat they found a planet in the possible "Goldilocks habitable zone." It is however, 500 light years away, meaning that even if we had rocket ships that could get to 99.9999% of c (speed of…

    The Baartman Bag

    Posted by Lark Lisle on April 22, 2014 at 5:03am 0 Comments

    The Baartman Bag is a serial short story told in four parts. In a futuristic society, black teen girls are abducted, taken to a slaughterhouse and skinned to make couture purses. One young woman decides to fight back.

    First, they lop off your head. Then they saw off your arms and legs – body parts as valuable as dust – until only your naked torso remains. While you are still warm, before your blood knows it’s dead, they shear the skin from your back, breasts and belly with a great whirring blade, careful to preserve your flesh in whole swathes.

    Or so the story goes. I have never witnessed the actual process for transforming a black girl into a couture bag.



    I was brought to the slaughterhouse, a place my pen-mate…

    No Compromises on AFM...

    Posted by Reginald L. Goodwin on April 21, 2014 at 6:01am 0 Comments

    JILA's modified AFM probes measuring DNA molecules. The older mod (long cantilever, right) eliminated the usual gold coating to enhance long-term stability. The latest version (left) retains the gold coating where needed to reflect light but maintains excellent stability. Researchers also removed a large section to reduce stiffness and friction near surfaces. The new probe provides precise results much faster than before, while reducing “noise” (colored squiggles).

    Umoja-The Road(s) to Black Sovereignty

    Posted by Greg Denmark on April 20, 2014 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

    As I read the agreeable and insightful blog by Bro. Clifton McMillan Jr. some thoughts came to mind.

    http://blacksciencefictionsociety.com/profiles/blogs/my-personal-warning-concerning-technology-and-preparing-for?xg_source=activity

    The show Revolution deals with this, as well as, many other media presentations. I am very much into technology, but I have been knowing what he writes for decades.

    One of the things that I promote is everyone having a frame of reference from which to understand/overstand reality. Mine is a Afrocentric one-a balance of old and new, past-present and future being cyclical, logic and intuition in harmony and a dissertation worth of many other ideologies.

    With that being said, it gives me a different view of things. People's reliance on technology…

    A Nation of Warring Tribes...

    Posted by Reginald L. Goodwin on April 20, 2014 at 8:12am 0 Comments



    See previous: "Weaponized Pseudoscience" yesterday. Quoting part of the post: "we're in the aftermath of 'created realities,' and I fear this self-willed ignorance of science is slowly unraveling our nation." We are the sum of the stories we tell of ourselves, some noble; some salacious; some shameful. Some of them are best left unsaid...…

    My personal warning concerning technology and preparing for possible unrest in society

    Posted by Clifton McMillan Jr. on April 20, 2014 at 1:30am 0 Comments

    "Whole nation depends on technology. Stop the wheels for two days and you'd have riots. No place is more than two meals from a revolution. Think of Los Angeles or New York with no electricity. Or a longer view, fertilizer plants stop. Or a longer view yet, no new technology for ten years. What happens to our standard of living?"



    (Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle)



    ^These words sound like they could have been penned in 2014. But they weren't. These words were taken from a science fiction novel published in 1977 called Lucifer's Hammer.



    Lucifer's Hammer is essentially about what would have happened if a comet struck the Earth in the 1970's, how society would react. And let's just say in order to not spoil the book for those who haven't read it yet. that the reaction wasn't good. And it hasn't improved. I'm not a Luddite (a person who believes that all technology is evil and we are better off without it), but I know that…

    DONATE TO OUR MOVIE TODAY.


    The Earth Squadron Project is moving along nicely, so far we have successfully fleshed out the short story into an 83-page feature length script. The Earth Squadron logo has been completed and we have created over 20 characters, ships and alien creatures.

    As of March 5 2014, we were able to successfully raise over $3000 during our 60-day indiegogo crowd funding campaign! We will utilize these funds for audio, voice actors, ram, 3D accelerator cards and promotional materials.

    We still need additional funding for packaging, marketing, trade shows, film festivals, and production equipment. Please donate to our campaign so that we can continue the progress we all already made. Thank you in advance for any assistance that you provide.
