1960 East German/Polish color science fiction film based on the 1951 science fiction novel The Astronauts by Polish science fiction writer Stanisław Lem. It was directed by Kurt Maetzig, and stars Günther Simon, Julius Ongewe and Yoko Tani. The film was first released by Progress Film in East Germany, running 93 min. Variously dubbed and cut versions were also released in English under other titles: First Spaceship on Venus, Planet of the Dead, and Spaceship Venus Does Not Reply. After finding an ancient, long-buried flight recorder that originally came from a spaceship, apparently from Venus, a human spaceship is dispatched to Venus. The crew discovers a long-dead Venusian civilization that had constructed a device intended to destroy all life on Earth prior to invasion. Before they could execute their plan, they perished in a global nuclear war.
Himmelskibet, Excelsior / A Trip to Mars / Das Himmelschiff is a 1918 Danish film about a trip to Mars. It's the first film in the Space Opera motif, and most later Space Operas owe their visual styles to this movie. This copy features inter-titles in four languages.
With the death of a strong proponent of turning Liu CiXin's Three Body Problem into a movie (2nd run), this article of the original Chinese to English translator Ken Liu came to my attention. A long read, worth every minute.
The success of “The Three-Body Problem” not only turned Liu Cixin into a global literary star; it opened the floodgates for new translations of Chinese science fiction. This, in turn, has made Ken Liu a critical conduit for Chinese writers seeking Western audiences, a literary brand as sought-after as the best-selling authors he translates. ... Liu’s translations have reshaped the global science-fiction landscape, which has long been dominated by American and British authors. Over the past decade, he has translated five novels and more than 50 works of short fiction by dozens of Chinese authors, many of whom he has discovered and championed himself.
(Note, no relation between these two people of the same surname.) And hey, for next year, if you haven't ever read Chinese sci-fi, there's hints all over the article what to look out for (in English, other languages likely to be much slower). There's also audio unrelated to this article to maybe aid you with deciding.

The Raspberry Pi is the small, low-cost, single-board PC that took the world by storm when it was released in 2012. Since then, educators, students, makers, and tinkerers have used the various Raspberry Pi models for many, many unique and interesting projects. The possibilities are nearly endless.
Over the course of 2020, Opensource.com published many great articles about Raspberry Pi projects; below, I explore the top 10. I hope these articles educate, entertain, and inspire you.

Created for version 7 of AT&T’s original Unix operating system, the sed command has been included with probably every Unix and Linux OS since. The sed application is a stream editor, and unlike a text editor it doesn’t open a visual buffer into which a file’s data is loaded for processing. Instead, it operates on a file, line by line, according to either a command typed into a terminal or a series of commands in a script.
I am running a yunohost server and an Ubuntu server with Apache so when I saw this I immediately wanted to play with it. It’s all open source and it runs on anything that will run Debian. There are also many downloads for singleboard computers and even turnkey hardware.
What a Decentralized Web Means for Digital Advertising, The prognosis for ad tech is not good for advertisers as they can't Push adverts into Feeds
Advertisers have long been used to paying a central service (whether Facebook, Twitter or even a newspaper) to push adverts into a reader's feed which they have no choice but to see. Facebook and Twitter (and Google) went further by adjusting algorithms so that users don't even see their friends' posts any longer in chronological order, but rather in the manipulated order the service provider determines.
This model is severely disrupted with decentralised, federated and peer-to-peer social networks that are rising up now, as they don't contain these algorithms, and neither do they push adverts into feeds. A user would have to follow an advertiser or business in order to see adverts. They would also see the adverts in a global feed, but with equal weight of any other post. So if say Ford had an account on a Mastodon instance, any user elsewhere on Mastodon, Pixelfed, Hubzilla, etc could follow that account if they wished to, and would see the adverts then in their feed. But it's a whole different mindset that advertisers and brands would have to adjust to.
Yes it gives users the power to decide what they want to see and will mean advertisers will have to work hard for relevancy. Even inserting adverts at the app level will be difficult as often there are multiple such apps available per network (it's a world of freedom of choice) and they are open source so anyone could just produce a newer app.
It's Facebook's extreme greed that has actually helped usher in this change, which is quite ironic. My wake-up call came last week when a very locked-in family member decided on her own to ditch her Facebook account - that really showed me the frustration that is taking hold.
