An image from the surface of Mars

| 29. August 2012

I simply glad to share this, it just came in via our friends at NASA. The MSL has taken this magnificent and inspiring image on the surface of Mars. This is how its surrounding looks like. Desolate, but eerily picturesque:

A bit outside the story line, but incredibly helpful to pass the time unitl the next episode:

Ad Astra Neil Armstrong! Your memory lives on forever!

| 25. August 2012

Neil Armstrong, a hero of the 20th century, a living legend, the first man to walk on the moon has passed on. And it is rare a quote from the Hávamál is as fitting as it is here: Cattle die, kinsmen die you yourself die; I know one thing which never dies: the fate of the […]

Review: Sunday Driver UK – The Mutiny

| 25. August 2012

Another Steampunk album, another different style, another work I cannot complain about. This time it is The Mutiny by Sunday Driver UK, one of the more prominent bands in the Steampunk scene.

A Tesla Museum!

| 20. August 2012

My friends and fellow conspirators over at the gatehouse have already blogged about it and now I also finally come round to promoting this wonderful project: Operation “Let’s build a Goddamn Tesla Museum” How much more worthy could a Steampunk/Teslapunk project be, if I may ask. It is hardly conceivable. Now, the land where Tesla’s […]

H.P. Loveceraft would have been 122 today, so all cultists pay homage to him this day. Mr. Lovecraft, your followers await your glorious return on the day the stars become right again!

The Non-Euclidean Æthercast: Steampunk Projects and the Mars Rover

| 19. August 2012

The last podcast before I go to Vienna for the European Steampunk Convention. It was recorded under somewhat unusual circumstances on-the-fly while I was trudging through the part of western Germany to which the railway came last. And now for some links: My book, Kurz & Geek: Steampunk Mars Science Laboratory
