Have you heard of 'Exosquad'?

With more Marvel and D.C. comics movies coming, I'm strangely reminded of Saturday morning cartoons. That's likely because I was introduced to the superheroes that way. But there are other cartoons that deserve attention.

Have you heard of "Exosquad"? I came across the science fiction cartoon series on the video-streaming website Then I remembered that I likely own a DVD of the show that I may have bought for a dollar (which I haven't watched) and that I had owned an action figure of an E-frame (mech) when I was a kid. There also is a Sega Genesis game based on the cartoon that I remember seeing in the past.

Farewell, space shuttle program

I bid farewell to the space shuttle program. This doesn't mean there won't be any space travel, however. The International Space Station is still in orbit and in operation.

It seems that NASA's next big mission is to send mankind to Mars by the 2030s, since a bill was approved in September to go in that direction. See the article on here.

At once considered a thing of science fiction, a trip to Mars is possible and welcomed. Let's hope the idea of Martians stays with science fiction.

For a video of space shuttle Atlantis' astronauts getting a wake-up call from band R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe, click here (the video is on the NASAtelevision channel on YouTube, but apparently, the audio doesn't work if shared to another website). The astronauts are taking a break today, but should return July 21 at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, according to "Shuttle Astronauts Take Much-Needed Break from Busy Mission" by Denise Chow, staff writer.

Here's a video of the last NASA space shuttle launch:

Happy Independence Day! And you can tweet that!

From Wikipedia.

To my fellow Americans, happy Independence Day! I doubt there will be an alien invasion like what happened in the 1996 "Independence Day" movie, but, hey, I can't think of a better Fourth of July science fiction reference. Comment below if you can!

To those of you from other countries, I hope you have a great day as well!

And to everyone who tweets (or just follows them), check out my newly created Twitter page. You are welcome to tweet my blog entries.
