USA Today posted an article today that shares some new interesting news on the upcoming Darth Maul episodes of The Clone Wars.

In the upcoming Clone Wars arc, General Grievous launches an attack on Maul’s homeworld of Dathomir, and Mother Talzin of the Nightsisters has told Savage Opress (voiced by Clancy Brown) about Darth Maul, sending Opress on a quest to find his long-lost brother.

They also included a nice quote from Dave Filoni.

We saw the warrior, definitely. But what we weren’t as aware of was how trained Darth Maul was — not fighting using the ways of the Dark Side, but his intellect and his cunning as he learned from Darth Sidious.

The article also mentions Maul being out for revenge against Obi-Wan and no longer having his iconic double bladed lightsaber. You can read the full article here which also includes a video of Maul and his new lower half. Enjoy!

Feel free to discuss Darth Maul’s new robo legs on our forums.

Star Wars Books has posted their fifth excerpt from Troy Denning’s upcoming novel Apocalypse.

When Allana did not reply, her mother took her hand. “They’re going to be fine. If anyone can do this, it’s Han and Leia Solo.”
“I don’t think you can promise that,” Allana said, continuing to study the cloud-veiled planet in front of them. “Even Grandpa and Grandma don’t usually fly into the middle of a Sith ambush— at least not on purpose.”

FOTJ: Apocalypse comes out March 13th. You can check out the previous excerpts here: #1, #2. #3 and #4.

Podcast: Stream Here | Download

Things get dark on this week’s installment of Tosche Station Radio as Nanci and Brian delve into the Dark Side and discuss their favorite villains in science fiction and fantasy.

To kick off the show in Fixer’s Flash, Nanci plugs the article she wrote for Valentine’s Day, a soul-crushing look into romances in Star Wars that ended in utter tragedy. Can you feel the love tonight or is that just us? Brian talks briefly about an article he wrote over at Roqoo Depot that skips the romantic subplot all together and delves into the relationships that really matter: bromances*. Speaking of Roqoo Depot, the hosts congratulate them on their one-year anniversary and commend them for somehow managing to survive giving Brian a writing gig.

*It was somewhat legen-wait for it**

Youngest Person in the world to create Nuclear Fusion

February 23, 2012 at 9:02 am | Posted in Science News | Leave a comment

Taylor Wilson is the 31st person to privately (without government or industry funding) create nuclear fusion. He did it at the age of 14 making him the youngest person to ever achieve nuclear fusion. The story of Taylor’s journey toward achieving his dream was covered by Popsci. It’s a great read and I highly recommend checking out the article.  Taylor’s journey includes turning his parents garage into a radioactive laboratory, family vacations to Nevada to prospect for uranium, and the fun aspects of traveling through the airport with 60 lbs of bomb fragments and radioactive material. You can read the article here and you can even check out Taylor’s website.
