Pixel Scroll 1/1/19 We’re Going To Need A Bigger Scroll

You deserve a bigger one, but let’s pretend this Scroll came out on time!

(1)FANGRRLS INTERVIEWS KOWAL.[Item by Mike Kennedy.] SYFY Wire’s Fangrrls柱持续下降的帖子,在这种情况下与作者我在昆仑后期†Stellation亨茨维尔AL有会议荣幸的采访(“空间的国家:玛丽·罗比内特·科沃尔上的宇航员,社会正义和需要眼镜“)。作为一个怪胎,我在她使用电子表格在她的写作方式很感兴趣(虽然那可能只是在采访中第三或第四个最有趣的事情)。

玛丽·罗比内特·科沃尔的multi-award-winning “Lady Astronaut” series不可想象什么1950年的太空竞赛会像如果妇女不只是幕后的“计算器”(等的主人公“隐藏图“),但中央级任务的成员。如果你在这样一个时代成长起来的,其中女航天员都没有,所有显着,也许这似乎并不像很多扭曲的。但考虑什么科瓦尔必须做做出这样的选择历史似是而非:她打碎了一个小行星进入美国,一个灭绝级别的事件,这两个变换的空间竞赛将企图殖民火星的东海岸,并从根本上减少数量在这个雄心勃勃的项目提供给工作的人 - 这意味着需要两个自己的身体和他们的大脑女航天员。

[…]FANGRRLS:如何明确你想现代的政治,当你把这些故事一起?

KOWAL:Pretty explicitly. These two books were odd because I wrote them before Trump. So, writing a book in which I slam an asteroid into Washington, DC is very different before Trump than after Trump. I went on a book tour for the book before this,Ghost Talkers, and my first tour date was election day. And what I usually do is read a chapter out loud from the next book. So, election day. I read the first chapter…

FANGRRLS:The slamming asteroid chapter?

KOWAL:I read the slamming asteroid chapter. And it’s fine. Because at this point, the results are not in yet. The day after that, I read it again and the audience has a completely different reaction. It was just — it was so uncomfortable and different. And I just didn’t read it for the rest of the tour.

(2)WIRED'S精选去年最佳的漫画。亚博体育下载app有线talks about what they consider “The Best Comics of 2018— FromSabrina to Crowded。”

Each year, more comics hit the shops than any one person could ever read. And while the splashy superhero titles are (somewhat) easier to keep up with, finding all of the great hidden gems each year is tough. We’re here to help. Below, just in time for you to spend the holiday break catching up, are some of the best books of 2018. We say一些的最好的,因为亚博体育下载app我们不提的是,已经出现在标题以前year-end总结起坐状,说,DC的miracle先生,这将出现,否则,也不是我们包括才刚刚推出的书籍,这也解释了没有眩晕的的Goddess Mode。But enough about what没有获得晋级,让我们看看该做的书。而最好的部分?亚博体育下载app有些是持续的头衔,这意味着你有更多的期待在2019年。

The comics discussed in the rest of the article include:

  • Sabrina(Drawn & Quarterly)
  • 不朽的绿巨人(Marvel)
  • 世界女子(Drawn & Quarterly)
  • Beneath the Dead OakTree(ShortBox)
  • (Image Comics)

(3)今天过生日的。

[由猫埃尔德里奇汇编。]

  • Born January 1, 1954Midori Snyder,65. I was most impressed with迈克尔·麦克布莱德的飞行, the Old West meet Irish myth story and hannah’s garden, a creepy tale of the fey and folk music. She’s seems to have been inactive for a decade now. Anyone know why?
  • 生于1957年1月1日Christopher Moore,62. One early novel by him,蓝狼, is my favorite, but anything by him is always a weirdly entertaining read. I’m hearing good things about比诺,他的最新作品。有没有人看过吗?
  • 生于1976年1月1日Sean Wallace,43.文选,编辑和出版者为他的书籍总理工作和共同编辑三本杂志众所周知,Clarkesworld杂志这是我的爱,黑暗, and幻想杂志这是另一种喜欢of mine. He won an impressive three Hugo Awards and two World Fantasy Awards. HisPeople of the Book: A Decade of Jewish Science Fiction and Fantasywith Rachel Swirsky is highly recommended.

(4)GET STARTED DECORATING THE SET IN LA.

(5)新的航天飞机。Another spacecraft manufacturer is looking to start cargo runs to the International Space Station in the near future (ScienceAlert: “NASA Just Cleared The “Dream Chaser” Space Cargo Plane For Full-Scale Production“)。在追梦者最初被设想为载人车辆,但被改变用途后,失去了对商业乘员计划,波音公司和SpaceX公司。有翼飞行器预计将有5500公斤上涨到国际空间站至1850公斤下调的有效载荷能力。

Watch out space, there’s a new commercial cargo carrier entering the race.

内华达山脉公司(SNC)一直given the go aheadfrom NASA to begin full-scale production of its “Dream Chaser” commercial space cargo plane.

Scheduled to make its first mission in 2020, the company announced on December 18 that it had cleared the last milestone in its Commercial Resupply Services 2 contract.

Now the company is able to move ahead with the full-scale production of the carrier which will be used to deliver cargo to the International Space Station (ISS).

BRAINS CONNECTED.科学预警:“3人的大脑已经成功连接,使他们能够共享的思考”

神经科学家已经成功地勾搭上了一个三向大脑连接,让三个人分享他们的想法 - 在这种情况下,玩俄罗斯方块式的游戏。

该小组认为,这野实验可以扩大连接的人整个网络,是的,它的怪异,因为它的声音。

It works through a combination of electroencephalograms (EEGs), for recording the electrical impulses that indicate brain activity, and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), where neurons are stimulated using magnetic fields.

该系统背后的研究人员将其称为BrainNet,并说,这可能最终被用于许多不同的思维连接在一起,甚至在网络上。

But apart from opening up strange new methods of communication, BrainNet could actually teach us more about how the human brain functions on a deeper level.

  1. 6( - ?有关于“大脑”无编号):有没有必然结果头条的Betteridge定律,简单地说,标题中的任何科普文章永远不会文章中的任何一个准确的描述?

  2. 滚动是否应被熟人忘了
    而游手好闲被认为同时
    滚动是否应被熟人忘了
    我们仍然有旧日文件。

    I checked a couple fo spellings to see if this had been used. I’m 99% sure I just managed to miss it somehow.

  3. It is so cold in my place! (And never mind that the numerical temperature is what a lot of you would be happy to have right now!)

  4. New year resolution: Write a SF novel about aliens, which name rhymes with “pixel”. Would make things easier. At least “scroll” rhymes with “troll” (but singular isnt perfect)

    This is the scroll
    美丽的巨魔
    This is the scroll
    My only troll
    滚动

    我们精心策划的,滚动
    Of everything that stands, the scroll
    No safety or surprise, the scroll
    我永远不会剔到您的箱子再次

    (工作得非常好到目前为止)

  5. 没什么特别的理由 - 任何人花费了太多的时间仔细阅读,现在的园艺网站?

  6. @ 3:我很失望中比诺; I don’t expect Moore to be particularly woke, but this one seemed to dial the misogyny of its prototypes up to 11. YMMV.

  7. @Lis:问题是,文章中所描述的实际研究是不是在所有牵强,它只是一个稍微复杂的测试案例以目前的技术。记者口口声声说那些关于“分享的想法”,但研究人员得出了没有这样的要求。所以,仅仅典型的弹出式科幻写作。

  8. 2)我读的第一期The Immortal Hulkover the weekend and didn’t want to read any more. Too grim. If I want a big green thing dealing out unpleasant justice and harsh morality, I’ll readThe Spectre。也许我错了。这方面的一个早期的问题Sandmanput me off it for two or three years.

  9. 约翰Arkansawyer说I read the first issue of The Immortal Hulk over the weekend and didn’t want to read any more. Too grim. If I want a big green thing dealing out unpleasant justice and harsh morality, I’ll read The Spectre. Possibly I’m wrong. That one early issue of Sandman put me off it for two or three years.

    哪一个Sandmanwould that be? Not the Gaiman one I assume which IIRC wasthat grim? Are you perhaps referring to the earlier version of The Sandman who was Wesley Dodds? Or yet another one altogether?

  10. 迈克·格利尔saysIt is so cold in my place! (And never mind that the numerical temperature is what a lot of you would be happy to have right now!)

    Wimp it’s actually been a pleasant winter here with temperatures somewhat above normal meaning, well, no snow at here in coastal southern Maine. We may get a few inches tomorrow morning but that’s our first of the season.

    I spent this morning at my primary care getting a follow up on the elbow wound. The PA that looked it at wasn’t at all happy with the ER care so she had an x-ray taken as she suspects either a deep bone bruise or possibly a hair line fracture might have also occurred along with the severe wound. And she gave a course of antibiotics to take as well. Along with orders to keep it iced too.

  11. Well, there was that early issue of Sandman (somewhere in the single digits, I believe?) set in the diner …

  12. I gave up on Moore because he keeps trash talking my neighborhood. SF is a small town where we take our neighborhood loyalties/rivalries seriously, so he can go find himself some other location that has a Steak and Shake if he ever wants to eat there.

    As far as the telepathy experiment … they hooked up two sender-humans to a receiver-human via EEG and had them transmit impulses equivalent to “rotate the Tetris shape” and “don’t rotate the Tetris shape.” The responding receiver rotated (or failed to rotate) the Tetris shape with 0.8 percent accuracy. Seems a little elaborate when you could just text somebody “don’t rotate” with zero risk of iatrogenic complication, but I ain’t no doctor. And I still don’t believe in telepathy.

  13. @乔H.

    I think that was the story featuring Doctor Destiny and Sandman’s ruby. It was really grim and gory, I believe.

  14. @Rob Thornton — Yes, that was the one I was thinking of.

    [在重读的迫切需要增加睡魔事物的列表]

  15. @All: Sorry to be vague. I was indeed thinking of the Doctor Destiny issue ofSandman。它留下了一个非常大的negative impression on me, big enough to assume (incorrectly) that everyone would recognize it. It was “really grim and gory”, as Rob Thornton says. I’ve never liked gory. I’m disliking grim more each day. That particular issue was gratuitously, excessively both, in my opinion. One very good reason to start new readers on the second volume ofSandman是跳过这个故事。这孩子拿到了第一册第一,通过特定的故事已经放一放,试。所以,我认为确实有anecdata两件来支持它。

    还有其他黑暗的故事Sandman,但他们不那么黯淡。

  16. @约翰答:这是完全可以理解的。我本人喜欢很多非常严峻的事情,但我从来没有真正喜欢的“24小时”。It reads to me like Gaiman trying to figure out what blend of fantasy and horror the series would be, and trying out some prose stylings, and also looking for a different take on the typical “ha ha I’ll drive everyone crazy” supervillain thing… but IMO it doesn’t work at all and what’s left is just brutality that contributes nothing to the series. I mean, you could remove that issue and there’d be no effect at all on the story except that you wouldn’t know who Foxglove’s ex-girlfriend was.

    I had the same reaction to one issue of Mike Carey’s路西弗, a series I like a lot. He did a one-off about some poor schmuck who gets possessed by demons that put him through all kinds of unpleasantness and then he dies. Why.

  17. I do think Gaiman somewhat redeemed “24 Hours” retroactively, though, in the way he referenced Judy later on— basically, starting with the familiar “a bunch of random people met some horrible fate” setup but then reminding you that they’ll actually be missed, without having singled anyone out as an important character from the start. It’s not a big thing, but it’s something I hadn’t seen before.

    但是,它可能已经做到了,以及不准确的所有艰苦的细节可怕的事情发生在每个人的顺序。

  18. I maintain that the best place to start reading Sandman is with the Doll’s House TPB (which collects issues 9-16). It was the first TPB to be released & the first one I read & which got me hooked. (In the first 8 issues I get the sense that the comic creators were still finding their feet & consequently were uneven.)

  19. 我认为这取决于。我还行与24H,even though I thought it was a lot like what I’d previously read in Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing. But that familiarity also made it an easy start. Lots of well-known figures. So for people coming from the Swamp Thing/Hellblazer side, I think it best to start from the beginning.

  20. 事实证明我错了如此反应强烈的这一问题Sandman, which considered as a complete run is as good as comics get. The first issue ofThe Immortal Hulk是不是几乎一样严峻或血腥,我可能有一天觉得我错了不希望它继续读下去了。

    是的,但Hampus,考虑如何装饰你的平板。我的意思是,你是谁也不能随随便一个空几架上在Worldcon营造恐怖注入,如果引人入胜,怪诞显示的家伙。蜘蛛Hampus是一个局外人。
