A Terrible Thing to Lose: Zombie Science and Science Fiction in Jo...

By: Tedd Roberts

Description: This article describes the many reasons as to why fictional zombie writings shouldn't be eliminate from literature. It also goes through the history of zombies.

Excerpt: In contrast, the classic movie monster, Frankenstein, is basically a zombie, in that it is composed of cadaver parts and animated by a mad scientist, but lacks the modern concepts of hunting and feeding on humans. Consider, for example, the humorous zombies of Piers Anthony's Xanth series: The Zombie Master is a human sorcerer who reanimates corpses as servants. The corpses are constantly losing parts, and present no real danger to humans, but only one individua...

The Menace from Lydia: the Social Spider as Alien Invader

By: Robert E. Furey

Description: This article talks about the evolution of spiders how they've adapted to the environment.

Excerpt: Not all spiders do all things with their webbing, of course. And not all spiders solve the same problems in the same manner. For trapping insects there are webs covered with drops of glue and there are webs that are mechanically “sticky” with tiny loops of webbing along a strand that entrap insect feet in velcro-like lariats. The iconic image of a web-wrapped prey item subdued and hung up for later consumption is an incomplete view of what a spider can do with silk.

By: Terry Burlison

Description: Nick Mullen along with three fellow astronauts were the first victims of the Columbia space shuttle. This article describes exactly what took place during the accident as the four astronauts were poisoned by gasses from the space shuttle and how they almost lost their lives.

Excerpt: At 9:15 a.m., when they reached the 130-foot level of the RSS, Bjornstad, Cole and Wolford logged in, walked across the access ramp to the shuttle, then climbed down the four-foot ladder to the platform outside door 50-1 of the orbiter. Their task was to inspect and “close out” equipment in the back of the vehicle, near the main engines. The access door had been replaced by a curtain to provide easier access. According to their timeline the aft GN2 purge was com...

By: Bob Kruger

Description: This article goes through the history of Dungeons and Dragons. It explains the creative background of the video game and Bob Kruger's opinion on the development of the game.

Excerpt: On the other hand, he said in the original Dungeon Master’s Guide that “hit points,” the measure of damage a character could sustain, represented a mix of skill, luck, and divine favor more than physical toughness. Whereas wounds like broken bones weren’t, as he put it, “the stuff of high fantasy,” both trichinosis and trichophobia apparently were.

Getting Guns Right

By: Michael Z. Williamson

Description: This article describes the history of firearms and how firearms have played it's role through history.

Excerpt: At its basic level, a firearm is a piston engine. A propellant is ignited and powers a projectile down a bore. Instead of working a crank, it is forced out in a chosen direction. The impact energy is simple to calculate, being only a matter of mass and velocity. The terminal effects of certain projectile designs on tissue are more complex, but plenty of data and tests exist, and modern computer models can predict the outcome quite well. Nor do most media stories...
