"Why have you brought us out here?" Ralph cried, pushing his finger through his hair and gripping it in frustration? "We have to go about two hundred miles and you've brought us probably two hundred light years!" "How did you know that?" Harry asked surprised. "Maybe you're better at space travel than we thought!" "Oh... Continue Reading →
I saw this on Tumblr and had to share it - this is what the Andromeda galaxy would look like in the sky if our eyes were more sensitive! https://cosmosastronaut.tumblr.com/post/169742302588/beautiful-andromeda-galaxy-how-amazing-would-it Simon 🙂
Seriously... what a fucking week! But let's not dwell on this, between all the bits and pieces of my life they conspired against me - hence my relative absence last week. But back to this week, a week I'm hoping will be a bit more fun and more progress in it. I've already made a... Continue Reading →
Nearly five years ago I created this blog. At first it was called rather unimaginatively sfarnell. After some time and after realising my love of all things science fiction and space the blog name was changed to Planet Simon. It was appropriate. Even though I didn't know it at the time I had created a... Continue Reading →
I liked this view of Mars, because it's one you don't get to see very often. I posted this the other week, but since then I've played with the images and joined them together for one seamless shot! I'm quite pleased... Taken from NASA's Tumblr Page Simon 🙂
What is it about Monday's that makes them go wrong? Why can't they be a nice day? A good thing about this Monday is I needed my sunglasses going to work. OK it was later than usual but even so and what has the snow and rain done? The potholes that have appeared over the... Continue Reading →
The new space race is here. Just as in the 1960's where Russia and America raced to get a man standing on the Moon Mars is now in the sights of two competing tribes. This time though it's not countries but companies that are fighting it out. Boeing has boldly claimed that the mega rocket... Continue Reading →
I've been on this Earth a little while now and if there's one thing I'm increasingly convinced that doesn't exist or is rare it's coincidences. The premise is that on your path in life many, many other paths cross yours in different ways and these are totally random events. But I'm not so sure. Do... Continue Reading →
I saw this on Pinterest and I simply HAD to share it with you all, ok some things don't apply so much to me, I don't see a loaded gun very often and driving 'stick shift' isn't mandatory in the UK but you can't really drive until you can use it. Apart from that... some... Continue Reading →

I woke up this morning to a blog award nomination from MacKenzie. You really should go and have a look at her blog, she has a pretty long list of conditions she's been diagnosed with but she refuses to let this get in the way and has some pretty inspiring posts so go and pay... Continue Reading →
Hi there bloggies, so here is the first manic Monday post of 2018 and as I stand here with the year ahead I have to wonder "What will I do this year?" After a bit of thought on this I have decided there are a few things I need to do this year. Some of... Continue Reading →
Come and join the party at Cyrannys blog.
Yes Ma’am and yes Sir! With an exclamation point, nothing less!
I was thinking of a way to shake the last of today’s annoyances away, and get my usual Cyranny mojo back… And I told myself, what better way to get in a good mood, than to open The Cove’s door to everybody, set some extra chairs, make the best of the remaining Christmas lights, and throw a party? It is Saturday night by all means!
Hey! You can wear your fanciest glitter-dress, or just rock your comfiest pjs, no one will mind! So what do you say? Let’s do this!
I won’t keep rambling on here, I’m saving my energy for the mingling below! So here are the “rules”… Or so to speak;
- Introduce yourself and your blog a little, for people who wouldn’t know you already.
- Share links to your blog, and/or to friends of yours in the…

It has been generally accepted in the galaxy that fighting in space is a fairly pointless activity and very little is gained from it. The great Nargan battle that took place a centuries ago between the two races from the Algol binary star demonstrates this very nicely. The race from the smaller star were rather...

Lennon is once again taking over Planet Simon, this time she's going to an intense workplace situation, starting a story that's going to go we know not where... Break Away You're staring at me. Chin resting on your hands intensely staring as I called out customer requests. It's terrifying for me, sitting across from you... Continue Reading →
I love these drawings that are starting to appear all over the internet, I found this on on Pinterest and having grown up with the films and I always loved the Millenium Falcon I had to share this: Credit link: https://pin.it/d2t5vgogwl2n7u Simon 🙂

Firstly as this is my first post of 2018 - Happy new year to you all! Back in 2016 my friend Erin of Bubbles and Beebots tagged me on a great little idea to write a letter to myself to open in a year’s time. I've been keeping this up since then as I have found this... Continue Reading →
