The kid and I have worked our way up to Stargate: Universe, which is alas no longer streaming so we're having to netflix it via disks. As slow as this is, it has some cool extras on it, such as the Kino diaries (Web-only content, mostly the diaries of some of the characters, though some are clearly deleted scenes), and on disk 2: "The Daniel Jackson Introductory Collection."

BOOK REVIEW: "The Black Cloud" by Fred Hoyle (1957)

Kevin Long's picture

"The Black Cloud" is a science fiction novel written in 1957 by Fred Hoyle, probably the greatest astronomer of his generation. his qualifications place this book in the not-at-all-tiny-but-certainly-not-very-big category of Science Fiction written by actual scientists. It goes without saying that this is "Hard Science," rather than the generally more common "Soft Science" side of the genre. There are actual scenes in the book of people doing math, and even an appendix by the author in the back where he explains his formulae so you can check his work.
