On the next season of LOST...

I know that the "snake in the mailbox" changes everything and I understand that there might be some changes on LOST next season, but I think they've gone too far...

Serenity flys to station

So this blog tends to cover space and pop culture, usually two very different topics, but every once in a while, the two come together and it's beautiful.

Case in point, my friend Flygal pointed me to this site:
BREAKING ATMO - Here's How It Is...
which details the efforts from some of NASA's Browncoats to bring the joys of Firefly and Serenity to the astronauts aboard station.

How shiny is that?

Did everyone see Star Wars: The Legacy Revealed on the History Channel last weekend?

If you missed it over the weekend, don't worry, they're going to repeat it a couple more times. It's a really well done "2-hour special exploring why the emotional impact of the Star Wars Saga remains as relevant as ever."

With interviews from the likes of J.J. Abrams, Joss Whedon, Kevin Smith, and Steven Colbert, as well as a number of academics and for some reason Nancy Pelosi and Newt Gingrich, the show explores many of the archetypes developed though the films and how Lucas borrowed from everything from Greek mythology and American westerns to the Bible and why 30 years later Star Wars still resonates with so many people.

I highly recommend it.

The History Channel's website has lots of cool short clips and other resources too.

And while you are setting your Tivo, don't forget to schedule it to tape the Robot Chicken's Star Wars special on June 17!
