Doctor Who vuelve en primavera

Ya falta menos para ver la nueva de Doctor Who, la Serie Británica producida por la BBC que ha entrado en el libro Guinnes de los Records por ser la serie de ciencia-ficción mas larga del mundo.

Esta nueva temporada se empezará a emitir en Abril, así que ya solo faltan un par de meses para que empiece.

En esta nueva temporada seguiremos contando con Matt Smith como el onceavo doctor y traerá algunas sorpresas, que se adelantaron en un pequeño tráiler que se emitió al final del capítulo especial de Navidad. Entre ellas un capítulo rodado en el desierto de Utah (Estados Unidos) y la promesa de Moffat de desvelar el secreto de la misteriosa River.

Eat My Dust, Cylons: Guy Makes Street-Legal Viper Starfighter From Battlestar Galactica

Eat My Dust, Cylons: Guy Makes Street-Legal Viper Starfighter From Battlestar Galactica: "viper-1.jpg

Some guy went and made a Colonial Viper Starfighter from Battlestar Galactica out of an old Postal Service Jeep, a bunch of other crap, and a small-block Chevy V-8. Hey, I have a small block too! Just sayin', guys that like to have sex with cars. No? Holy shit, I've hit rock bottom.

The car was built by Dean Shorey, the master ride mechanic for Seabreeze Amusement Park in Rochester, NY. I worked there as a systems engineer for one season on a custom pump house control system for their waterpark. Dean and his crew have that park in such good working order, that he has a lot of free time on his hands, especially in the off seasons (when the park isn't building custom antique style carousels for other parks). So he restores and collects cars. Last I talked with him, he had over 20 something vehicles in various states of restoration. He's a big fan of the original BSG, so he decided to build himself a STREET LEGAL Viper Starfighter. From what I remember, the front end is off of an old postal Jeep, it has chevy small block engine (cause Dean is a GM guy and he has lots of small blocks lying around the shop). It seats one person and has a cassette deck. No A/C.


Now listen: I'm not one to judge because God knows you probably couldn't find a faultier human being than yours truly, but I'm not so sure a guy who warrants three handicapped spaces should even be driving.

Two more shots of the wide right turner after the jump."

1:1,000,000,000 Scale Model USS Enterprise

1:1,000,000,000 Scale Model USS Enterprise: "uss-tinyprise.jpg

This is the world's smallest scale model of the USS Enterprise. It's tiny. Like, smaller than your penis tiny. Invisible to the naked eye. Or, let's be honest, even the clothed eyes. You poor bastard.

Measuring just 8.8-micrometers long, this 1-billionth scale model of the USS Enterprise 'was made with a 30 kV Ga+ focused-ion- beam CVD using phenanthrene gas by Takayuki Hoshino and Shinji Matsui of the Himeji Institute of Technology.'


Now correct me if I'm wrong, but this is supposed to be a scale model, right? Because I always thought the Enterprise had a little more of an aerodynamic appearance. This thing looks like a crushed pie pan. Which, day after Pi Day tie-in -- I'm taking it!
