We are forever hopeful that the fabled 9th planet (aka Planet X, aka Nibiru) will one day be confirmed, even if we don’t really believe it will cause a magnetic pole shift or some other apocalypse. It’s just cool to think there’s an unknown planet that’s 10x the Earth’s mass floating out there in the dark reaches of our solar system.

Now, researchers have found indirect evidence in the form of another object whose weird, off-kilter orbit they argue can only be explained by Planet X.

“It’s not proof that Planet Nine exists,” said David Gerdes, an astronomer at the University of Michigan and a co-author on the new paper. “But I would say the presence of an object like this in our solar system bolsters the case for Planet Nine.”


did you guys know that the robot genre of science fiction sprung up as a critique of the way in which industrialization reduced workers to taking up monotonous, unskilled factory jobs in order to earn profit, jobs which in turn alienated them from their own humanity? did you know that the theory of the alienation of the self under capitalistic mode of production is a core principle of marxism? did you know that robot itself comes from a czech playwright who, for a science fiction play, coined the word as a derivative of the czech term robota, meaning forced labor? did you know that the robot genre is rooted in anti-capitalist sentiment?

My final image (You can see the drawing and the steps below). I really like how it turned out. The style feels fresher then my typical fully rendered look.

“ ‘1984’ is a stunning book and film. Its vision of the future has been used to describe the age we live in since it was published.”

“The role of the heroes in most dark futures is to defeat the forces that help make these dystopian futures happen.”

GIFs (Part 2 of 2) of Peter Capaldi discussing the book and film, 1984 (by George Orwell) and also the role of the hero in a dystopian future (i.e. The Terminator). From the AMC documentary, James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction (Episode 4: Dark Futures)

“The science fiction authors and filmmakers may have given us the ammunition by illuminating for us the dark possibilities which are now becoming more and more real.”

“I think that one of the most powerful, dazzling, nasty ends for – for humankind is “Planet of the Apes.”

MARV: patrol

“patrolling the low fields became a task people would kill for. A nice breeze, a stable flight field, time for a quick smoke and virtually no enemy activity… you’d almost feel like cruising in of those fancy resorts back in the south.”
Big ups to Matthias de Muylder and Jad Saber for some really helpful feedback!

Still exploring the military side stories of the P.D.E flight technology and it’s effects on the world. I think I’ll move back to flying campers pretty soon!

A War In Space: The Banker Who Gambled Everything And Brought Eve’s Greatest Empire To Its Knees

An interesting article that relates a “real” space opera: inside the game EVE Online, a guy (in real life a defense contractor for the US Department of Defense) led a war against the notorious leader of an empire that seemed invincible. Space battles that involve thousands of players, lots of in game money, virtual casinos and complicated alliances…this is Star Wars mixed with Ready Player One (and a little bit of Game of Thrones politics).
