Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] science_at_nasa

How could I have gotten through my Friday without knowing the fate of Camilla the rubber chicken at the edge of space?

Check here for all the actual scientific details.  With video!

Not all genre / speculative poems appear in speculative journals, so it's fun to keep an eye out for them elsewhere.

Today, for example, I was catching up on some recent offerings on Poetry Daily when I ran across this poem.

 "A Little about Not Knowing Very Much" by Christopher Buckley didn't appear in a genre collection, but it is filled with exquisite science/SFnal imagery.

OK . . . these particular zombies are ants, but the idea of a parasitic fungus manipulating the behavior of its (dying) host to promote its own reproduction is still majorly creepy.  Thank you, Smithsonian.com

For all the horrific details -- and an equally nasty little story about "gaster flagging" -- check here.

And be glad you aren't a carpenter ant in Thailand.
