geeky things to say to Cortana

If you are like me then you love talking to technology and you are a geek. So, ahead of Star Wars day tomorrow, here are some geeky things you can say to Cortana if you get a moment.

"Give me a Star Trek Quote" - There are FOUR lights!

"Give me a Star Trek quote" - Should be KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN! though, right?

"Give me a Red Dwarf quote"

"What's your favourite Star Wars Movie" - again, Cortana is wrong. There are only two good Star Wars movies.

"Tell me a Star Wars joke" - chortle
Do you really need to be told what I said?
"Give me a high five"
"May the force be with you"

If you enjoyed this post then you might want to take a long hard look at yourself and maybe get out into the countryside a bit more often. Failing that, you can amuse yourself a bit more with some Star Wars Name Generator fun, or maybe just some more posts about Cortana.

Today we celebrate three years in space

On the first of May three years ago we launched Project Poxima the world's first internet based space mission.

Project Proxima is a hypothetical, light-speed space mission to the Proxima Centauri star system. The aim is to create a teaching tool that helps explain the vastness of interstellar space (it's big, reaaally BIG!).

Today Proxima has traveled nearly 28 trillion km - that's about 70% of the total distance.

A lot has happened in the time since launch: perhaps most notably are the rise of Trump and the British referendum on Brexit. Most interestingly, however, that since launching the Project Proxima mission, scientists have discovered an earth-like planet in orbit around the Proxima Centauri system.

You can get involved in the mission by following on Twitter, or tracking the progress on the website.

You can also become an official supporter and sign up for email alerts.
