In a surprising mid-season twist, Markus rants about things that probably only he cares about. Put on your waders listeners, cause this one gets deep. Are these the ravings of a mad man, or is his nerd rage justified? You decide.

Note of correction: I mistakenly said “kilobytes per second” in regards to audio bitrate, when more accurately it is “kilobits per second” which ironically enough proves my point

In 1990, NASA and the ESA launched the Hubble Space Telescope. It enabled us to learn the life cycles of stars, revealed black holes, proved the existence of dark matter and dark energy, and has even given us a glimpse into the oldest parts of the universe.

Now, over 30 years later (with some fresh underground collabs) they're about to drop the hotly anticipated sequel...

In this Short, Markus and Drew discuss the tremendous respect they have for the Sea (and those who sail it), through a story of Peruvian sailors trapped beneath the waves in their crippled sub the Pacocha, and their miraculous escape.

This story of horror and heroism is something akin to  Apollo 13, Titanic and Back Draft, all rolled into one real life nightmare.

What if you were asked to compile all relevant cultural examples of humanity and then put it in a sort of satellite-time-capsule and then shoot it off into the far regions of space?

What images, sounds, and media would you pick and why? Furthermore, how would those choices be interpreted by intelligent extraterrestrial life?

These were the questions that faced Carl Sagan and his associates in the 1970s.
