This past weekend, I had a unique experience. I was invited to a beautiful outdoor wedding in the mountains. It was a gorgeous autumn day. Everyone in attendance was dressed in fantastic outfits. I truly mean that: it was a LARP wedding. The ceremony took place in the midst of a LARP event. For the uninitiated, LARP is live-action role playing. I have never experienced before, but I took the opportunity to explore and learn about it. While there are plenty of opinions about role playing, seeing it and experiencing it put LARP into an entirely new perspective. In this episode, I look at the creativity, focus and dedication that LARP requires.
In the exclusive content section, In The News, we look at the news that NASA has confirmed the existence of flowing water on Mars. While this seems like a simple discovery, the implications are indeed vast. As we discuss manned missions to Mars and look for signs of life outside of our own planet, discoveries such as this only build our scientific evidence. While I do not buy into science fiction ideas about UFOs and aliens, I am fascinated by the prospect of finding how life could subsist in conditions outside of earth. This is only a stepping stone to much greater scientific discoveries, but it is exciting nonetheless.
