Star Trek Writers To Reboot Flash Gordon
Gordon's alive!

What do you mean, "Flash Gordon approaching?" Well, after some years of varying development hells, and a short-lived Sci-Fi Channel TV series in 2008, it looks as if the pulp space hero is in the initial stages of a journey back to the big screen. Their source is unclear, but the impetuous boys (and girl) at Film Divider believe that JD Payne and Patrick McKay, currently at work on the third modern Star Trek film, are also writing an ambitious new Flash Gordon adventure.

Flash Gordon made his debut in newspaper comic strips drawn by Alex Raymond in the 1930s, and was initially conceived explicitly as competition for the then very popular Buck Rogers. Gordon was a polo-playing Yale graduate who, with companions Dale Arden and Dr Hans Zarkov, initially headed into space to find the source of some meteors bombarding Earth. Their first encounter with Ming The Merciless - the alien gitface behind the meteors - would not be their last, and their continuing adventures on the planet Mongo would see them also encountering hawk-man Prince Vultan and the rulers of various jungle, ice and undersea kingdoms.

Gordon was immediately picked up for three Saturday morning film serials starring Buster Crabbe (also briefly Buck Rogers and Tarzan) between 1936 and 1940. Slightly more recently and perhaps most famously, of course, there was the 1980 movie camp-fest with the mad Queen soundtrack, starring Sam J. Jones as Gordon, Max Von Sydow as Ming, and a particularly mental Brian Blessed as Vultan.

Payne and McKay's connection to JJ Abrams' Bad Robot includes adapting the novel Boilerplate as well as their work on the Star Trek threequel, but whether Flash has a home there, or elsewhere, or is merely a spec script the pair have developed on their own is unclear at the moment. They also have action scripts Goliath and Deadliest Warrior floating in development at, respectively, Temple Hill and Paramount.

Their take on Flash Gordon is apparently (predictably) to rescue him from his current reputation as something stupid but much loved (see Sam Jones' recent turn in Ted), and restore his reputation as a more serious adventurer. He is, after all, the metallist man alive, come to save us all, with his constant thrash. Oh no, wait, that's Thrash Gordon. That's someone else.

The world didn't seem quite ready for John Carter. Are we up for a new Flash Gordon?

'Earth's Cousin': Scientists Find Alien Planet That's Most Like Home

Scientists say a world that's 490 light-years away qualifies as the first confirmed Earth-sized exoplanet that could sustain life as we know it — but in an environment like nothing we've ever seen.

The planet, known as Kepler-186f, is "more of an Earth cousin than an Earth twin," Elisa Quintana, an astronomer at the SETI Institute at NASA Ames Research Center, told the journal Science. Quintana is the lead author of a report on the planet published by Science this week.

"This discovery does confirm that Earth-sized planets do exist in the habitable zones of other stars," Quintana said during a Thursday news briefing at NASA Headquarters.

Kepler-186f goes around an M-type dwarf star that's smaller and cooler than our sun. But it orbits much closer to its parent star than Earth does, within what would be Mercury's orbit in our own solar system. Those two factors combine to produce an environment that could allow for liquid water on the surface, assuming that the planet had a heat-trapping atmosphere.

"The star, to our eyes, would look slightly orange-y," about a third again as big as our sun but only a third as bright, said co-author Thomas Barclay, a staff scientist for NASA's Kepler mission who is also affiliated with NASA and the Bay Area Environmental Research Institute. At midday, Kepler-186f's landscape might look similar to what we see on Earth an hour before sunset, he told NBC News.

Or it might not: If the planet lacked an atmosphere to retain and redistribute its sun's warmth, it would be a cold, dry, lifeless world.

Kepler-186f probably rates as the most potentially Earthlike planet discovered so far, said Jim Kasting, a geoscientist at Penn State University who did not play a role in the Science study. But he told NBC News that it's still "less likely to be habitable than planets around more sunlike stars." Even better prospects for alien habitability might well be identified in the months and years to come.

How the world was found

Kepler-186f is just the latest discovery to be pulled out of terabytes' worth of data collected by the Kepler mission. Before it went on the fritz last year, the Kepler space telescope stared at more than 150,000 stars in a patch of sky, looking for the telltale dimming of starlight as planets passed over the stars' disks. Nearly 1,000 exoplanets have been confirmed using Kepler data, and almost 3,000 more candidates are still awaiting confirmation.

It takes years of observation to confirm the pattern of dimming and brightening that's associated with alien planets, particularly if the planets are small and far from their parent stars. In February, astronomers reported that at least four worlds circled the dwarf star known as Kepler-186 or KOI-571. In this week's Science paper, Quintana and her colleagues confirm the existence of Kepler-186f as the fifth and outermost world.

They report that Kepler-186f is about 10 percent wider than Earth, tracing a 130-day orbit around its sun at a mean distance of 0.35 astronomical units. (An astronomical unit is the distance between Earth and our sun, which is 93 million miles or 150 million kilometers.) That would put Kepler-186f on the cooler, outer side of the star's habitable zone — the range of orbital distances where liquid water could exist on a planet's surface.

Astronomers have confirmed the existence of other planets in their stars' habitable zone, but those prospects are super-Earth-size. Smaller habitable-zone candidates also have been found, but they have yet to be confirmed as planets.

Barclay said Kepler-186f was particularly promising because it's less than 1.5 times the size of Earth. Planets in that size range are more likely to be rocky with a thinner atmosphere, like Earth, Mars and Venus. But worlds exceeding that size stand a better chance of retaining a thick atmosphere of hydrogen and helium, like the giant planet Neptune.

"While those planets also could be rocky, they don't remind us of home," Barclay said.

M-dwarf stars are thought to be the most numerous stars, accounting for as much as 70 percent of the stars in the Milky Way. As a result, "the first signs of other life in the galaxy may well come from planets orbiting an M dwarf," Quintana said.

The promise of worlds to come

Could we actually detect signs of life on Kepler-186f? That's a tough one. The astronomers behind the discovery acknowledge that the planet might be just too far away for follow-up studies. The SETI Institute has been searching for radio signals from the Kepler-186 system over a wide frequency range (1 to 10 GHz), but so far nothing has been detected.

Kasting, the author of "How to Find a Habitable Planet," said worlds around M-class dwarf stars faced several disadvantages in the habitability department. For one thing, such planets generally end up being tidally locked to their stars — meaning that one side of the planet is always facing its parent sun while the other is always turned away. "This is not a show-stopper for habitability, but it's a problem nonetheless," Kasting said.

Also, M-class stars tend to throw off strong stellar winds and flares that could blast away a planet's atmosphere. In Kasting's view, the most serious problem is that such stars are thought to glow much brighter early in their lifetime, and only later settle down to become dimmer than the sun.

"Thus, a planet like Kepler 186f that is within the star's habitable zone today may have been strongly heated soon after it formed, in which case it may have lost its water early by way of a runaway greenhouse," Kasting said in an email.

These are the reasons why astronomers are so interested in searching for Earth-sized planets that lie in the habitable zones around stars that are more like our sun. "We just need a lot of money and political will to do that," Kasting said.

Further analysis of the data from Kepler could produce those prospects, but scientists are also banking on future missions such as NASA's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite and James Webb Space Telescope, the European Space Agency's PLATO and CHEOPS probes, and the Giant Magellan Telescope in Chile. Such observing instruments could look for the potential signatures of life in alien atmospheres.

The actor for Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) did an amazing job with the character.  

I actually don't know anyone who has HBO Go.

For some the login password that is used to access the account in general for whatever provider(Comcast, dish, directtv) that subscribes to HBO can allow it. If you have HBO and don't use the provider's site, you may not realize that you can use it on whatever laptop, tablet, or smartphone that meets the minimum streaming requirements.

That is: I click on the HBO GO link and sign in with the Comcast username and password. Then I can watch whatever on the HBO GO site.
 
A lot of people would not give out a password that would let whoever has it change what channels you pay for.

Paul Walker's Brothers to Fill In for Late Actor in Some Fast & Furious 7 Scenes

Caleb and Cody Walker are joining the Fast & Furious family.

According to a message posted on the Fast & Furious 7 Facebook page , Paul Walker 's two brothers will fill in for the late actor in order to complete some of his unfinished scenes in the upcoming flick, which has finally resumed filming after Paul's death last year .

"The Fast & Furious saga is about family," reads the post. "The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. It certainly defines how we feel about our fans."

"Paul had already shot his dramatic scenes and most of his action for Fast & Furious 7, and it's among the strongest work of his career," it goes on. "We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul's brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our Fast family. Caleb and Cody are helping us complete some remaining action for their brother and fill in small gaps left in production. Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too."

The message goes on to say that the franchise's seventh installment, and Paul's last, is "the most important we've ever done together. It will allow the character of Brian O'Conner to live on and let us celebrate Paul in his most defining role."

"We wanted to take a moment to speak to our fans directly and thank you for the love and support you always show us as we resume our work," the message concludes.

Fast & Furious 7 resumed filming just last month. The film is set to hit theaters Apr. 15, 2015.
