    Well, it's out there somewhere, either somewhere near Jupiter or sitting in Japetus.

    It's in my kitchen. It makes a great counter top.

    Is your counter top full of stars?

    Was in a bookstore this afternoon and saw a new installment of I, Robot "to protect"
    Mickey Zucker Reichert is the author. It's an estate of Isaac Asimov, approved release.

    This post just reminded me of James Michener's excellent book "Space". While Michener is not normally known as a SF author, his fictional history of space exploration is very good and interesting reading.

    As always, his book is well researched and introduces subjects often forgotten, such as the fact that the Apollo and Soyuz programs were direct descendants of the Nazi V-2 program. He added Apollo 18 to the program to show what would have happened in the event of catastrophic failure on the lunar surface.

    I enjoyed Space.
    The made for TV mini series that aired in 1985 was well done too.

    Has anyone seen the HBO miniseries "From the Earth to the Moon"? I have the DVD set and really enjoyed watching it several times.

    Yes. The box set (VHS) was given to me as a gift on Christmas. An amazing production.

    I don't think I've seen that one.

    One show I can watch over and again is "For all mankind". It has no narrative, except the voices of the astronauts. Music was written for the show by Brian Eno. Deep Blue Day is one of my favorites, but was unfortunately stolen for the "swimming in the toilet" scene in Trainspotting.
