Is Elon Musk the Real Tony Stark?

I recently came across an interesting infographic comparing real-life eccentric billionaire Elon Musk to the not-so-real-life eccentric billionaire Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) of Marvel Comics fame. I always knew they seemed similar, but the parallels are actually pretty amazing. The only real difference is that Elon Musk doesn’t have a flying powered armor suit to help him stop crime… and alien invaders. But since Elon Musk does own SpaceX, he might just be able to stop alien invaders, too.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer

The latest trailer for Star Wars: the Force Awakens is out now! This one shows a lot more of the characters than the early teaser trailer, and to be honest, is a much better trailer over all.

Chart of Various Sci-Fi Ships

Have you ever wanted to see every ship in science fiction together on the same chart, and all in relative scale? Well, here it is! Although this poster has nearly every spacecraft in science fiction, in relative size to each other, ships smaller than 100 meters and larger than 24 km are omitted (and I’m sure some very obscure ones are missed too). The chart was created by Dirk Loechel, so drop by his portfolio and leave him some nice comment.
