This Week in Geekdom

Happy Sunday everyone and belated holiday wishes to those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving on Thursday. If this was a long weekend for you, hopefully it has been filled with gaming and nomnoms and goodness. It's been a pretty awesome, if already busy, kickoff to The Holiday Season and we're hoping to get in at least a little rest before the mistletoe mania gets cranked up to eleven. In that spirit, let's get down to the Week in Geekdom.


We are were weeks away from the release of Episode VII and we now know both the names of some of the new planets that will be appearing in the film as well as its rating. 


Einstein's Theory of General Relativity as narrated by David Tennant

Begun the privately-funded space wars have.

2016 is already shaping up to be an amazing year for autonomous cars. Prepare yourself for Formula E: an all-electric autonomous racing circuit.

It may or may not, however, be a comparably excellent year for Apple. The technology mega-giant has announced that it will be making a massive change to its headphones that may not go over well with the consuming public.

For a mere $5 USD you can have the one of the smallest computers made to date.

The science behind the magic of aging spirits in wooden barrels.

China will be constructing its own super-massive particle collider. If the project is completed per the released specifications, it will be the largest collider in the world.

General Awesomeness

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield and XKCD creator/former NASA physicist Randall Monroe have a little chat with one another and it is incredible that the universe was not immediately unmade given that raw quantity of awesome.

As always, best wishes for an excellent week ahead!
