    Well Red Pill Junky, there wasn’t any time travel in Prometheus. Unless of course you consider they went back in time before the first Alien film to make this film. But that really isn’t back in time considering that even this film is set in the future. 

    Sssooooo what do I win??? 



  • Scott Corrales theory of MIBs as reanimated corpses is fascinating.

    Alas, Alex Proyas beat him to it

  • 8×10 Monk

    Well … in time. A clue – don’t waste your money on 3D. The only place it really made a difference is in the beginning scenes. But good visuals all the way through that didn’t require 3D.

    It’ll be interesting to hear your take on the film.

    Ben? Aaron? Is it down there yet?

  • Joe from NC

    You know, when you started with the Space Command Kickstarter campaign, I thought you guys really sold out. But after listening to the interview, I was so jazzed about the project I had to donate. That project sounds like so much fun! Can’t wait to see the finished product!

  • It looks very promising, BUT –and I hate to be the troll in this story– I hope they do something about the general design of those space-ships.

    Maybe it’s just me, but the long wings and tail make them look a lot like normal airplanes, and I fear some people might see Space Command as a Scientology campaign :-/

    Besides, lifting a full-blown spaceship from the surface is just wasteful, not optimistic.

  • Pirvonen

    The birthday death phenomenon has been known from actuarial tables for decades. Nothing new there. Possibly there is some actually new information in the Ann.Epid. paper; in the Telegraph reporting there certainly is none.

  • Pirvonen

    Heat sinks. You need massive heat sinks to get rid of all that waste energy from the reactors an other engineering things.

    Geomantic sinks. The “wings” are actually structures that grab onto the underlying chirality of the space-time continuum to power the engines.

    The possibilities are endless. Engineering should not let prejudiced aesthetic sensibilities restrict the functional design.

  • 8×10 Monk

    Sorry, I’m in a little more agreement with RPJ. I can understand the need for wings to climb out of the atmosphere. As we’ve seen in our own designs of aircraft wings the length shown in the Space Command video is way too long and air conventional for breaking into space.

    Besides I’d hate to have to steer that damn thing to land on another planet. What if there’s power lines on Mars??? (Sorry, had to drag some knuckle.)
    On top of that reaching back into the 50s for designs and ideas of space travel for a current show? I can see it working for a nostalgic reason for a while but for longevity of a program like that … I guess I’ll just have to see it.

  • The guy writing a book on kindness actually shot himself and filed a false report to promote his book. It always gets weirder…

  • Ryan

    Hey what is the name of the last song in this podcast? It’s great and I can’t seem to find it.
