A Look at Which Science Fiction Franchise Has the Most Realistic Artificial Gravity

Published by:

In the latest episode of PBS Space Time, host Gabe Perez-Giz looks at which franchise has the most realistic artificial gravity in science fiction. Perez-Giz immediately throws out franchises that use anything but a rotational system to generate gravity, because it is currently the only realistic means we have to simulate Earth-like gravity in space.

Several sci-fi franchises like HaloBabylon 5, and 2001: A Space Odyssey all use rotationally generated gravity, but some manage to do so in a more believable way than others.

Poopy Cat Founder Rides a Modified Bicycle with his 2 Cats From Amsterdam to London to Mark the UK Product Launch

Published by:

In celebration of the UK launch of Poopycat (previously), the Dutch subscription-based biodegradable litter box service, founder Thomas Vles pedaled himself and his two cats on his modified Bakfiets bicycle the 300 miles from Amsterdam to London.

Inspired by the Popemobile, the custom made ‘Kittymobile’ has been specially converted from a traditional Dutch bakfiets bicycle for the journey to formally launch Poopy Cat in the UK. To keep Mushi and Cheesy entertained while in the Kittymobile, Thomas has included BLOCKS cat playhouse, designed to stimulate mental and physical activity for cats in smaller spaces, such as London and urban living in the UK. And when nature calls, a hygienic, disposable, biodegradable Poopy Cat litter box was also installed. The Poopy Cat ambassadors and founder Thomas will arrived at their London ‘poop-up’ store at Old Street roundabout in London, after following a tour of key attractions across the capital.
