G’day, and happy Caturday! I’m now 51 years old. Let’s see how much longer I can keep this up! This morning, I’m doing a companion piece to this on my fictional planet Bruticus, the latest dealing with the actual numbers so far on its mass, diameter, gravity, those of its five large moons, and some numbers crunched for the mass, express velocity, specific impulse, and the delta-V of the biological spacecraft of its natives with notes on their makeup as well. This has been a good week for study, though a bit slow for blogging. I’m currently engaged in a full unit of my Hindi textbook, and am getting new books to fill in gaps in the study of all three South Asian languages I’m learning. I found something very cool, and especially so for Americans of Tamil descent, 8K Radio, a Tamil language radio station located here in the ‘States, which I’m finding quite fun. I’m now a semi-regular listener to its evening program 2 Idiots, with RJs Dinesh and Priya, and enjoying the heck out of it when I can follow the news and discussion as well as the music. Again, thanks to Anneliese and Ray for suggestions and ideas on the alien ships of this morning’s next post!
