Apollo-Con


A little fun: June 25-27 the place to be in Houston was the Apollo-Con science fiction convention. Being close to JSC, the most interesting speakers showed up. Last year the convention saw astronaut Stanley Love; this year scientist Paul Abell talked about NASA and asteroids. Apollo-Con has always welcomed people with Spacesuits.

This unusual outfit was seen in the Saturday night masquerade and hallways. It received reviews at Failure Weblog.

"That one chick in the polished silver tight-fitting robot suit that completely covered everything head to toe -- based on sorayama's "sexy robot" work -- was pretty swank though. (and evidently won the costume contest)"

Also Aazari's LiveJournal:

"A gorgeously done costume inspired by Sorayama's "Sexy Robot" images won best of show"

Hajime Sorayama is best known for his pinup paintings and "Sexy Robot" women. The attendees of Apollo-Con must have a high art IQ to recognise his images. The outfit also won a Best Workmanship award. Hopefully Sorayama will be pleased.

Thank you Carl! You deserve congratulations for your publications. You are also someone who knows how things are built. The creative, original people like Carl have the most fun, while the others are jealous.

I don't think I ever mentioned that sewing is one of my hobbies. I know what goes into a suit like that. My specialty is woolens (i.e. suits) which are actually quite easy to form.

I'm reading a long biography of Newton. I hadn't realized how good he was with his hands. He built little machines as a youth. Back then "grammar school" meant just that; he didn't start learning arithmetic until only handful of years before he invented calculus at age 20. So much for making your children into geniuses by educating them early.

He designed and built the first reflector telescope, inventing the method of grinding mirrors himself. The book is fascinating.
