Halo3 Trailer/Documentary: ‘Making Of The Monument To Humanity’

This is a Halo3 trailer or advert, made to be something like a documentary created after the final war from the previous Halo battles where humanity was brought to the brink of extinction. Since this trailer is a mock documentary after the wars, there is no Halo3 gameplay, but it’s still striking and emotional by itself.

SELENE

Japan is carrying the country’s hopes of restoring pride in its troubled space program after the successful launch of a rocket today that is sending a satellite to Luna. Their first lunar orbiter will be the most extensive mission to investigate the moon since the US Apollo program about 4 years ago.

The US$279 million satellite, called the Selenological and Engineering Explorer (SELENE), will survey the Moon’s mineralogy, topology and gravity gradients.

Sensors onboard this gadget include: X-Ray spectrometer, Terrain Camera, Radar Sounder, Laser Altimeter, Magnetometer, Charged Particle Spectrometer and High Def TV cameras.

Follow the status of the project and learn more on the Selene english site which is part of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency.

It’s Dune Cat. He Controls The Spice.

Dune Cat

That hilarious title came from digg user MonkeyBrains. And if it doesn’t make sense to you, please for all that’s holy in your little geek life, go read Frank Herbert’s Dune. It’s a story of a power struggle between family dynasties in an interstellar empire. Heck, if I still have it I’ll give you my copy!

The spice must flow!
