More Firefly!

I've really enjoyed reading every issue of Astonishing X-men (most area available in graphic novel form), written by Joss Whedon. I'm sad to say that the final issue will hit the newstands within a few weeks, and then Joss is moving on to something new.

I was poking around the web to find out what Whedon is doing, and discovered that he is releasing a new limited series just for Firefly fans: Serenity: Better Days. Published by Dark Horse Comics, the three issues follow our favorite ship and crew in the days when they were all still together.

Read about Serenity: Better Days #1 here, and pre-order all three at TFAW.

An Astronomer on Mars

Cool image of the Earth and Moon as seen from the HiRISE instrument aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Explorer in orbit around Mars. You can see a better version of the photo and read the whole story here.

This reminds me of the somewhat famous image taken by the Voyager I spacecraft as it was headed outward in the 70s.

At the Planetary Society I found a gallery of photos of the Earth taken only from Spacecraft. Check it out!
