Obi Wan better watch his back

It’s a tough time to be a science fiction hero. Just look at the headlines for proof!

Not that I blame her. I’ve spent many an hour alone in an observatory, and I imagine the Astrometrics Lab on Voyager wasn’t that much more entertaining. Hey Janeway, maybe this wouldn’t have happened if you had let her use the Holodeck more!

WANT Part XIII: Moon throw

By Phil Plait | May 14, 2012 1:00 pm

When I’m getting the mid-afternoon drowsies, and looking for a comfortable, warm, cozy place to take a nap, what could possibly be better than… the impact crater-scarred surface of the Moon?

And ZOMFSM and it comes with matching pillows! And there’s a floor cushion!

Supermoon, indeed.
