Babylon 5

Babylon 5

Babylon 5 has a unique relationship with the Internet. J. Michael Straczynski, creator of the show, spends a remarkable amount of time interacting directly with the fans (and critics) of his show through email and the newsgroup

Irrefutable evidence for this relationship showed up in the first-season episode, A Voice in the Wilderness, part 2. An Earth Alliance battleship named "Hyperion" appeared in this episode. The Lurker's Guide to Babylon 5 was originally hosted at (By the way, the Lurker's Guide is the most complete, best organized archive of B5 info out there.) Here's a small shot of the ship; click on it to download the full-sized, 70KB JPEG file.

The Lurker's Guide to Babylon 5 was my initial reason for learning about the web and HTML.

Here's a whole page devoted to the lovely Russian 2nd-in-command, Susan Ivanova.


Cosmic Things

NASA has a great selection of space photos (from which the Jupiter image above was taken) in their planetary photogallery.

And for the Martian fanciers among you, there's NASA's Center for Mars Exploration, including the periodical Mars Today.

The NASA "For Students" page is a launching pad for all kinds of cool space stories and facts.
