This week is a potpourri of space and sci-fi strangeness, starting with a look back (and forward) at Project Blue Book, the Air Force study of UFO sightings 1952-1969 soon to be a new drama series on the so-called History Channel. Joining Ben and Celestia is F. Andrew Taylor, journalist and cartoonist, who spent the San Diego Comic Con drawing attendees' descriptions of UFO encounters to help promote the series for the History Channel. Then we head to the Star Trek convention in Las Vegas, where Celestia was able to chat with physicist Dr. Erin Macdonald (formerly of LIGO, who specializes in general relativity) and emergency physician and skeptic Dr. Angela Mattke, both avid Trekkies and science communicators.
