"Pointing out all the cool ideas in this book would mean a list a page long. There’s PyrE, the incendiary substance that explodes if you think at it just right. There’s a beautiful heartless Snow Maiden with coral eyes who can only see in the ends of the spectrum invisible to the rest of us. There are the cult of Skoptsis, who have for religious reasons had their entire sensory imputs cut off. There`s the radioactive spymaster with his skull-like face who can only speak with his beloved through a panel of lead glass three inches thick. There’s the pornography of taboo religion, the Cellar Christians. There’s the Burning Man (of course, at eleven I pictured the Human Torch in rags) who appears at critical moments like an inscrutable omen. There’s much more. Bester could have kept a magazine going for years by feeding out these concepts to different writers to develop into stories."
Read a glowing review of The Stars My Destination.

62 kilometers above comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko

Spacecraft Rosetta continues to approach, circle, and map Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Crossing the inner Solar System for ten years to reach the vicinity of the comet last month, the robotic spacecraft continues to image the unusual double-lobed comet nucleus. The reconstructed-color image featured, taken about 10 days ago, indicates how dark this comet nucleus is. On the average, the comet’s surface reflects only about four percent of impinging visible light, making it as dark as coal. Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko spans about four kilometers in length and has a surface gravity so low that an astronaut could jump off of it. In about two months, Rosetta is scheduled to release the first probe ever to attempt a controlled landing on a comet’s nucleus.
