Mars Rover

I'm depressed that the US has cut our Space program. When I was a kid it seemed like we were in Space all the time. And it seemed like greater things were ahead of us. Now, we can't even get to the Space Station without help.

So, this makes me happy. At least a little a bit anyway. I hope it makes it to Mars and we learn new things.

New Image from 'John Carter'

Interesting new image from the upcoming feature film, John Carter. I'm still not sold on the cast, but I love the source material. So, yeah, I'll watch it.

Here's the official line:

"From Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”–a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands."


'Skyrim' Game Director Speaks

'Skyrim' to Last Forever?

Unending quests? The game never ends? Of course, I was already speechless when I saw that all objects are viewable 360 degrees. This is only icing on the cake.
