From gods descended from the heavens, to single celled microbes on Europa, space has remained at the forefront of human science and fiction. In 1900, Nikola Tesla would famously receive an unknown signal of celestial origin some 30 years before the "birth" of radio astronomy as we know it today. This episode takes a look at Nikola Tesla's first discovery, his thoughts about it, and where we have gone since, and ends with a discussion about the perils of signaling into the unknown!

But they're also famous for a fair amount of science and the mystic that surrounds them.  This episode wade's into the Nazi plans for space during WW2. A Nazi Death Star, a futuristic bomber, and the first man made object to enter space, the V2 rocket.  The Nazis were defeated but their science lived on (directly) in the USA and Russia and the space race, and their influence can still be seen on the spacecraft today, and was left behind on the moon by Apollo astronauts.   Mentioned in the episode is an engineering document by Eugene Saenger in regards to the SilverVogel.... here it is http://www.astronautix.com/data/saenger.pdf Support via paypal.me/loreandlegends Music in this episode: "The Descent"  Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "Shadowlands 7 Codex"  Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "Drums of the Deep"  Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "String Impromptu #1" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

George and the Dragon
The legend of Saint George and the Dragon, and an account of his martyrdom in the Roman Empire that wold get him canonized as a saint in the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches. How much is history and how much is myth? George's story is one of archetypal good vs archetypal evil not unlike many others that came before it, down to the dragon and the spear. This story has inspired good for over well 1000 years, and will likely do the same for 1000s more.  Music in order of occurrence:  "Shadowlands-Codex"  by Kevin Macleod (incompetech.com)  Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "Five Armies"  by Kevin Macleod (incompetech.com)  Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "Gregorian Chant"  by Kevin Macleod (incompetech.com)  Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "Lord of the Land"  by Kevin Macleod (incompetech.com)  Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "Desert City"  by Kevin Macleod (incompetech.com)  Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "The Descent" by Kevin Macleod (incompetech.com)  Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

CRISPR, Eugenics, Nationalism, and You
"Wading In" is now "Lore and Legends" visit LoreandLegends.net for more info! This episode dives into genetic manipulation of humans via CRISPR and Eugenics. Starting with the recent news story of a Chinese researcher editing embryos with CRISPR, we jump into history and the pitfalls of nationalism and genetic discrimination in NAZI Germany and around the world. From there its into the future portrayed in various science fiction stories and movies like Gattaca, Brave New World, and even Star Wars. How do we handle this new power? Can avoid the pitfalls of the past, and those that might be in the future? Should we let the genie out of the bottle or fight to keep him in?  Support via paypal.me/loreandlegends or Patreon.com/loreandlegends Music in this episode:  "The Descent"  By Kevin MacLeod  (incompetech.com)  Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "Sneaky Snitch"  By Kevin MacLeod  (incompetech.com)  Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "Division"  By Kevin MacLeod  (incompetech.com)  Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "Gregorian chant"  By Kevin MacLeod  (incompetech.com)  Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "Drums of the Deep" By Kevin MacLeod  (incompetech.com)  Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

Coyote
"Wading In" is now "Lore and Legends" visit LoreandLegends.net for more info! Coyotes, hated by many, and misunderstood by most. A uniquely North American animal we've only just recently started to understand. Or, have we known for awhile just in a different format? The Native Americans had a remarkable and fabled relationship with the natural world. Maybe some of these myths and legends are on to something when it comes to our uniquely American friend the Coyote.  Support @ paypal.me/loreandlegends or Patreon.com/loreandlegends Music in this episode (in order of occurrence):  "The Descent"  Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "Sky of Our Ancestors"  Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ "Shadowlands 7 - Codex"  Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/  "Sneaky Snitch"  Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/
