Episode 43, Pi Curious


The Ministry of Geek are back after an unprecedented 3-week fortnight…oops! (We really did intend to record last week, but Richard F had to attend a funeral and was feeling pretty sad…fair enough?) This episode we indulge in a little geek critique of Batman and Battleships. We hook up Richard S’s Raspberry Pi and do an impromptu review. Finally, we chat about the Mars Curiosity and it’s nuclear powerplant! Geek on.

    If you are going to put it into the gadget graveyard, I’d be more than happy to put it to good use. 🙂

    • Hmmm…not sure Richard S is quite ready to relegate the Raspberry Pi to the Gadget Graveyard…just yet!

    Radioisotope thermocouple generator not a reactor but as cool. Let’s build one? Got any Pu236 laying around at the Ministry?

    • No, not quite a reactor, but still very, very cool (or maybe not, due to radioisotope decay?) We don’t carry much of that material around the Ministry!
