Morning Roundup: Asteroids Movie on a Collision Course with Audiences

It’s Friday and Stubby the Rocket is soaring over the planet like a single rollarskate in the rollerskating rink of the cosmos. Funky music is playing from a nearby pulsar and Stubby does a barrel roll in perfect time with the rhythm. Stubby thinks about maybe traveling back in time, or inventing a new color, or saving the people of Earth from boredom. Then Stubby realizes it’s the weekend and powers down for a rocket nap. (Wow, what just happened there? A B-52s song?)

Before you power down for your own rocket nap, here’s some exciting offsite links.

Highlights include:

  1. Steampunk’s not in Kansas anymore. (Actually it is.)
  2. Giant Asteroids movie passing dangerously close to preproduction.
  3. SF for YA.
  4. Archaeologists find vampire skeletons in the dirt.

From our spot-on, up-to-the minute Links of Interest sidebar:

Stubby the Rocket is the voice and mascot of Stubby wants to know why you’re trying to shake Stubby’s monkey tree! Where do you think this is coming from, the sky?
