Do You Want To Help Build the First Nuclear-Powered Airplane?

Then Pratt & Whitney wants you!   Or did, sixty years ago.

I ran across these while skimming old Newsweeks.   Unfortunately, doesn't look like they need mathematicians.   Also, I think the job might have been filled by now.

Toxic Stars

I'm not dead!   Really, I'm not.   Just busy.   Don't worry, I haven't abandoned the blog; I have a few things that should be going up here over the next few months.

One of the things that's been keeping me busy is Toxic Stars: The Future of Humankind in the Cthulhu Mythos, a Lovecraftian transhumanist space opera.   I've been posting it on a forum behind a registration barrier, but I've decided to put it up in public.   If you're interested, you can find it here.

Happy Moonwalk Day

At 9:56 PM today, Eastern Standard Time, forty-five years ago, Neil Armstrong first set foot on the lunar surface.

When times are hard, when the world seems filled with evil, hold that moment in your mind, when human feet first set foot on another world, and remember: together, there is nothing we cannot do.

Guest Post at ClarksonPunk

Hi!   Sorry for the slow posting.   Things, hopefully interesting things, are in progress here, but are not yet ready for the light of day.   Also, I'm writing my thesis, which obviously takes up a certain amount of time.   In the meantime, you can satisfy your craving for my writing with a guest post I wrote at the blog ClarksonPunk: An Atompunk Manifesto.
