Please consider donating to Behind the Black, by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar to the right. Your support will allow me to continue covering science and culture as I have for the past twenty years, independent and free from any outside influence.
An evening pause: This particular Muppet sketch is especially apropos considering the title of the op-ed that I have written that will appear tomorrow, Wednesday, August 14, in the Wall Street Journal.
Update: As it turns out, the Journal changed my original title, which was “Pigs in Space”, to “No Liftoff for These Space Flights of Fancy”. I liked my title better, but no matter.
