NASA Twitter followers now have the opportunity to join a two-day  tweetup for the April 19th launch of the space shuttle Endeavor.  150 tweeps will be randomly selected and NASA is strongly urging those who’ve already experienced a space shuttle launch to allow someone else this incredible experience.  All the information needed to apply for this once-in-a-lifetime experience can be found here at NASA’s official website.  Be advised that NASA is not providing transportation to Florida.  You must be able to get there on your own.  This event also does not qualify anyone for media accreditation.

Big Shiny Robot conducted an interview with Dave Filoni that shares some interesting insight into what we can expect in Season 4 of TCW. You can read the entire interview here.

There is also an article in the Huffington Post covering Dave Filoni and The Clone Wars (by the same author as the above interview). The article touches on different real world aspects of The Clone Wars as wells as the Season 3 Finale.

It’s that classic scenario where someone is captured and stranded and in a very desperate situation and you wonder how they’re going to survive and are people going to work together to survive. And it’s the episodes I’ve been teasing. And this is the episode I’ve teased as being very inspired by Predator. -Dave Filoni

It can be viewed here.

Two new Star Wars comics are out today: Legacy – War #4 and Darth Vader and the Lost Command #3. Be sure to check out the Dark Horse links for free online previews of both comics.
The allies launch a series of maneuvers designed to lure Darth Krayt into a trap. Only who is trapping whom?

As Jedi and Imperial Knights fight shoulder to shoulder against the Sith in defense of the Hidden Temple, Cade Skywalker can’t help but think of his father and the horrible losses the Jedi suffered the last time the Sith attacked . . .

The tide of battle turns, and the future of the Jedi hangs in the balance! –Dark Horse website

Haunted by recurring visions of what his life with Padme might have been like if he had not succumbed to the dark side, and guided by the Ghost Nebula’s mysterious priestess, Vader and his troops become embroiled in a disastrous battle on a tar-pit world.

Worse, the hard-fought battle brings Vader no closer to locating Moff Tarkin’s missing son-but it does put him in the deadly sights of a traitor! –Dark Horse website

Comic Reviews: Knight Errant, Aflame #5

It is always sad to see the end of a good series, luckily Aflame #5 is only the end of an arc. In this final issue of Aflame, the first thing that struck me was how much the art had improved from issue four. Not only was the art better, but the story continued into its final climax for an excellent conclusion…
