Space, the future, movies, coffee and finger licking science!
This week the crew takes a look at some various science news. We’ve got t-shirts, and we are going back to the moon and the theatre.
NASA’s Artemis mission is set to return astronauts to the moon starting in 2024. With an increased budget, the space agency is set to have a permanent presence on Luna by 2028. And this time, they want to include women for these moon missions.
Avengers Endgame will be returning to theatres this week with new footage. The movie will include about 6 minutes of deleted scenes, a tribute and an end credit sequence. The film is just shy of Avatar’s box office record.
In news closer to home, Shawn is trying a bulletproof coffee recipe in hopes of increasing his energy levels. Josh is experimenting with Mead and it should be ready in about a month. We also talk about how unhygenic scientists licked their fingers and discovered artificial sweeteners.
Teegarden’s star is only 12.5 lightyears away. The exciting bit is that it has at least 2 planets in the potential habitable zone. It’s not that far, and there could be life!
In comic news, Kitty tells us about a new Usagi Yojimbo 3 part series. And next week sees the release of a Peter Porker Spider-Ham comic.
In random news, we discuss government space budgets, space elevators, carbon nano tubes, and active support structures. We finish off with a look at the timeline of futuristic movies.
