The highest Peake

Today Tim Peake, left planet earth on the Soyuz rocket and became the first British astronaut for the European Space Administration.

I couldn't help but feel for his family who watched the launch, especially with a number of recent disasters in space travel as of late. Still, it all went smoothly and the Soyuz successfully docked with the ISS.

Congratulations to Tim and all the other members of the Principa Mission who made it happen.

GoooOOO Science!

Akatsuki came back (it just couldn't stay away)

In 2010 the Akatsuki spacecraft launched with the intent of entering the orbit of Venus. It failed, pulling a 'Darth Vader', and spun off into space.

After a staggering recovery manoeuvre over a five year period and several orbits of the sun, the Japanese team managed a second attempt and Akatsuki is now safely orbiting at approximately 10,000 miles above Venus ready to begin its mission.

Well played JAXA! We're just taking this solar system conquering in our stride.

You're so cool

Just got back from the BFI re-release of the flawless True Romance and had to sketch up a quick tribute (which is basically a frame from the movie).

Scott delivered his usual visual flare but its Tarantino's poetic dialogue and a perfect balance of sweetness and brutality that made it something special. I wont even go into the cast, but it is peppered with retrospective A-listers.

All of this is tied together with Zimmer's beautiful score.

Without a doubt my all time favourite film ever. Of all time. Ever. For real. See it.
