Geeking With Destination Venus Episode #26: "It's nearly Thought Bubble!"

Regie was flying solo again, because in the run up to Thought Bubble, who has time to come on a Podcast? Nobody! Click on the image below to go to the download page for the podcast, listen on Harrogate Community Radio, or search for Geeking with Destination Venus wherever you find your podcasts!

But the greatest convention in the country is this weekend, if you're reading this on the day it drops. Regie had a few things to say, and you can find out more HERE.

We are saddened to learn of the death of Dean Stockwell, a fine actor whose career spanned seven decades, but who is probably best remembered in the geek community for his role as Al in the show Quantum Leap. Read more about this remarkable man HERE.

Elsewhere Regie noted the issues being caused in the comics community by the Diamond Ransomware attack, which has caused all manner of annoyance. As we write, the issues remain unresolved. More HERE.

These are deep waters, but Regie touched on the Copyright issues at Marvel regarding some of the company's biggest characters. Read more HERE.

In news that is disappointing and frustrating in equal measure (Regie was audibly vexed) it is reported that Letitia Wright, who is supposed to be playing Shuri in Black Panther 2 is unvaccinated. This is a problem even if Regie stays off his pro-science soap box because she's currently at home in the UK. The movie should be filming in the US. Unvaccinated people who are not US Citizens are currently barred from entering in the United States. Wright is not a US Citizen. There are three possible solutions to the situation - none will make everyone happy. Read more HERE.

We then moved on to the Space Segment. The only story of note was the straight up bonkers but brilliant Spinlaunch announcement that they have developed a system which has the potential to literally throw stuff up into Space without using propellant. Read more HERE and watch the video below:

There's work to do, but this could be a real game changer for small payloads.

And apart from NASA's acknowledgement that there's no way it can put boots on the moon by its previously stated target of 2021, that was about it.

See you after Thought Bubble!
