For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.


Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.


Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

If you rather here me talk about space and the future rather than listen to President Trump give a boring and very typical state of the union speech, filled with blather, tune to The Space Show now.

    re: SOTU . ” Space Force, what Space Force” ? I’d have thought when POTUS had Buzz Aldrin, 2nd man to walk on the moon. stand up and take a well deserved bow, that was a perfect segway to the Space Force “need story”. I guess the USN told POTUS they already were running that show.. nonetheless, POTUS did a good job.

    The SOTU was pretty good and was actually quite lively as Trump was able to convince the Democrats to do some cheering, even if it was only for themselves. They even sang happy birthday to a Holocaust survivor. It is always quite the trick to see Trump either getting the Democrats to look like they hate the country when he says good things about it or stand up and cheer and make it look like they agree with the President.
