I've got deadlines looming, particularly with the Galactica book (oops! I didn't say that!), so I probably will be posting less for the next few weeks.
But let me leave you with a few cool links. In preparation for the new Star Wars, you should all first watch Store Wars.
And you must, by all means, see George Lucas in Love, if you ever get a chance. (I don't think you can watch it online, unfortunately.)
Finally, for a more serious look at real space travel—the current state of the U.S. space program, and prospects for the future, there's an excellent recent article from the Washington Post. (You might have to register to read this. But that's worth doing anyway.)
