My Recent Media Diet, Spring 2019 Edition

I’ve been keeping track of every media thing I “consume”, so here are quick reviews of some things I’ve read, seen, heard, and experienced in the past month and a half. For books, I’m currently reading Silk Roads and listening to the audiobook of Guns, Germs, and Steel, which are rhyming in interesting ways. Looking back, I haven’t listened to any significant new music in months and months. What am I missing? Turnton kitchen scissors. Ernest Wright very kindly sent me a pair of their kitchen sc...

Best things to do and see in Xi’an

Visitors from China and around the world pass through the ancient city of Xi’an on their way to the Terracotta Army in the nearby Lintong District.

With thousands of years of fascinating history and an energetic, contemporary vibe, Xi’an is worth spending a few days exploring before you check out the famous clay warriors. Xi’an was once the most important city...

VP Mike Pence sets 5-year deadline for landing Americans at moon’s south pole

Vice President Mike Pence today called for American astronauts to return to the moon in five years, laying down a challenge comparable to the 1960s-era Space Race. "We're in a space race today, just as we were in the 1960s, and the stakes are even higher," Pence declared during a meeting of the National Space Council at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama. He pointed to China's Chang'e-4 mission, which put a lander and a rover on the moon's far side in January. He ...

Cloudflare, a startup that secretly runs the internet, raises $150 million — meaning its long-awaited IPO probably isn't happening soon

Cloudflare, a startup that quietly powers much of the modern internet, has raised another $150 million in a funding round led by Franklin Templeton. This hefty round likely means that its long-awaited IPO isn't likely to happen in the near future.  Cloudflare also added Nike Foundation co-chair Maria Eitel and veteran tech exec Stan Meresman to its board of directors.

Rampant – review

Director: Sung-hoon Kim Release date: 2018 Contains spoilers Billed as a zombie movie (it isn’t, at most it is zompire) hailing from Korea (with the original title Chang-gwol) this has drawn comparisons with Train to Busan and, despite this being a period piece, the comparison is understandable as Busan was big news and this comes from the same studio. However, if you wanted a comparison it is more like period Korean zombie series Kingdom. In fact when I saw the trailer there were moments when...

China’s lunar rover is awake again after an extended nap

China's space program is making big waves as of late, and its soft landing on the far side of the Moon earlier this year — a feat nobody else has accomplished — is the biggest feather in its cap yet. The country has already declared the mission a success, but it's not done yet, and the rover that was aboard the lander when it touched down on the surface is once again exploring the lunar landscape after an extended nap. Days on the Moon last a whole lot longer than they do on Earth, but s...

Big Beasts of the Blue Ridge

The 8 Toughest Ultras in the South At one time, ultramarathons were a niche sport. They were ridiculously long distance races that only the craziest endurance athletes were willing to attempt. Today, several hundred ultramarathons occur around the United States every year. Although an ultramarathon is technically anything longer that 26.2 miles, the most extreme races push the boundaries of humans can endure.

Watch the historic first private mission to the Moon launch Thursday night

For the first time later this week, a privately developed moon lander will launch aboard a privately built rocket, organized by a private launch coordinator.

NASA captures best look yet at China’s lunar lander hanging out on the Moon

China started the year off strong by landing a lunar probe on the Moon's surface and deploying a tiny rover to do a bit of exploring. The country's space agency is the first to land such machines on the far side of the Moon that we Earthlings never get to see with our own eyes.NASA recently published images captured from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter showing the lander as a tiny pale dot against a sea of gray.

How realistic are China’s plans to colonize the moon?

The world is still celebrating the historic landing of China’s Chang’e-4 on the far side of the moon on January 3. Last month, China announced its plans to follow up with three more lunar missions, laying the groundwork for a lunar base. Colonizing the Moon, and beyond, has always being a human aspiration. Technological advancements, and the discovery of a considerable source of water close to the lunar poles, has made this idea even more appealing. But how close is China to actually achieving t...
