Hi Folks, we are back from a quick trip to Europe - Berlin, Prague, and Paris! We begin to share a few tales in today’s show, especially our investigations of the Berlin Wall and its significance today.  It’s also an exciting week for Japanese space endeavors, with their successful landing on an asteroid and the launch of an experiment exploring the concept of space elevators, a long time sci fi dream. Meanwhile, back on earth, Houston is struggling with how to deal with the opening of America’s first Robo Sex Brothel. Tickets to Westworld, anyone?

Did you see the last blood moon lunar eclipse this past Sunday?  Very special, and a little challenging for those in our bioregion.  Though we did finally see the last bit of it peaking out of mostly cloudy skies, we had a pristine perspective via NASA TV on our iPad..Very sweet!

Did you ever wonder what happens when two black holes collide?  Astronomers have discovered what appears to be a pair of supermassive black holes circling toward a collision so powerful it would send a burst of gravitational waves surging through the fabric of space-time itself. The smash-up is expected to happen in 100,000 years or so, a blink of the eye in cosmic time!

We have two live reports this week, the first from VR pioneer Greg Panos, who chaired a session on early VR at Siggraph 2015 and just attended an Occulus Rift convention.  in a nutshell, VR is coning on like a freight train, arriving in stores by this time next year.  Meanwhile, Apple’s shiny new products are out this fall and we have our Apple pundit Taylor Barcroft present his second segment on them, with a focus on Apple Watch, the new Apple TV and the new iPad Pro.  If you’ve been thinking about  these gadgets, you’ll appreciate what Taylor has to say.  Enjoy!
