7 planet solar system detected!

WOW! And when I first read about the Firefly universe, I thought to myself, hmmm, that many habitable worlds around a star?... nah, that'll never happen. Science fiction for the win! :-D

The latest Space X launch and landing

Incredible video from Space X, be sure to go full screen on this.
Launch at 14:30. Very nice!
At 21:00, the booster starts a re-entry burn to prepare for landing. Check out the cool guidance fins and small jets used to steer the booster. Love that grid design!
At 22:00 the landing burn begins and the booster stage drops down through the clouds.
22:52... landing!

Star Trek: Enterprise: The Complete Series now on Blu-ray

If you're a Trekkie, you might like to read about this. Star Trek: Enterprise: The Complete Series is soon available on Blu-ray. Most of us know that this series was a bit of a stinker at times, but it's kind of nice to beam it down every now and then and have a peek. Especially on Blu-ray, where the effects are at their finest.

It features all 98 episodes digitally remastered in high-definition on 24 discs for the Blu-ray and on 27 discs for the DVD alongside a trove of special features such as commentaries, deleted scenes from select episodes and archival mission logs.

Set in the 22nd century, a hundred years before James T. Kirk helmed the famous starship of the same name, Star Trek: Enterprise takes place in an era when interstellar travel is still in its infancy. Captain Jonathan Archer has assembled a crew of brave explorers to chart the galaxy on a revolutionary spacecraft: Enterprise NX-01. As the first human beings to venture into deep space, these pioneers will experience the wonder and mystery of the final frontier as they seek out new life and new civilizations.

And hey, we're giving away a copy to SuperFans/Patreons! EDIT... Patron Johann won, yay!
