Growing up with an avid interest in astronomy, it was disappointing that there were no television shows about the universe. Oh sure, there was “Nova” and other shows, but they didn’t have the heart or sense of wonder that “Cosmos” had. “Cosmos” was an award winning television show by astronomer Carl Sagan which took the […]

Science fiction stories about time travel will have to stay fictional, at least for now.

The first official image of Henry Cavill as Superman is making its rounds on the interwebs today. My thoughts? The suit looks like it’s made of scales, the “S” is way too big, and what’s with the hair? The backdrop of Superman breaking out of a bank vault is probably just for this promotional picture, […]
