Hello Dave

Well, it's official get ready to welcome your new robot overlords. If the shuttle Discovery doesn't explode midair from leaking hydrogen the first humanoid robot will be taking up residence in the ISS at the end of the month. Have we learned nothing from 2001, robots will murder us to keep us safe its the inevitable result of computer logic. Fortunately, Robonaut 2 will be undergoing months of testing when he arrives in orbit before being integrated into the crew's working tasks. Check out more details at Jonathan Amos' blog

Apocalypse Now

"My film is not a movie. My film is not about Vietnam. It IS Vietnam. It's what it was really like -- it was crazy. And the way we made it was very much like the way the Americans were in Vietnam. We were in the jungle, there were too many of us, we had access to too much money, too much equipment, and little by little we went insane."
 ~Francis Ford Coppola describing Apocalypse Now

Probably one of the best movies ever made. Also pretty poignant words.
