Lost in my own head

Hmm .. I see it's been a while since I last posted. Been busy blogging elsewhere in conjunction with the release of InterstellarNet: Origins and working on a new novel, Energized.

The former is wrapping up, and as for the latter I just finished the first draft of a major section. It's time to try to get back to a routine.

Even in the throes of writing, I make time to surf (aka, take sanity breaks). Here are some recent finds in tune with this blog that I consider especially interesting:

An article about fifty years of SETI in, of all unexpected places, The Wall Street Journal.

A excellent three-part overview of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The articles of the series run the gamut from the purpose of particle colliders, to how giant detectors detect subatomic particles, to the software that runs the show.

An editorial on pre-positioning supplies for an eventual crewed Mars mission, by scientist/SF-author editorialists David Brin and Bud Sparhawk. (Disclosure: this editorial is on the SIGMA website -- SIGMA being a pro bono think tank of SF authors -- and I am a SIGMA member.)

And last but not least, the Pioneer Anomaly remains, well, anomalous. A matter of some, ahem, gravity.

Now back to Energized.
