South Park Invades The NFL

Published

on

The team around South Park have always had a way of grabbing attention. They managed to do just that again in Denver on Sunday night as the South Park characters descended on the NFL.

As sports teams juggle different tactics to bring in-stadium revenue at the moment, with minimal or zero ticketed attendance, the Denver Broncos scored a touchdown.

Ahead of their latest one-hour special. The teams at South Park and Comedy Central placed hundreds of cardboard cutouts of their characters in the empty stands of Empower Field at Mile High Stadium, Denver.

You can see how it all came together below.

In the episode new airing on Comedy Central on Wednesday 30 September Randy comes to terms with his role in the COVID-19 outbreak. As the on-going pandemic presents continued challenges to the citizens of South Park. The kids head back to school but nothing resembles the normal that they once knew; not their teachers, not their homeroom, not even Eric Cartman. Here’s the latest trailer of the South Park special.

The new hour-long supersized episode will be imaginatively titled “The Pandemic Special”, and will be aired on Comedy Central on Wednesday 30 September.

The Denver Broncos lost their game to Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers. So, alas, the South Park characters clearly didn’t bring the team any luck when they visited the NFL.


Are you a South Park fan? Will you be watching this special episode to cheer you up and this difficult time. Let us know in the comments below.

Star Trek Tech That’s Almost Here

Published

Star Trek is iconic for many things, but its futuristic technology is what wowed and inspired many a viewer.

Bearing in mind that the franchise is 55 years old, some of that tech from the future is already here. So, let’s take a seat on the bridge of the Enterprise and have a delve through the computer’s logs.

What’s been and gone

Let’s delve into the futuristic tech that is within touching grasp of our fingertips. Believe it or not, a warp drive could be coming our way soon. Perhaps not as quick as Picard heading off to engage with the Borg, but still. There are exciting rumblings coming from NASA regarding their EmDrive technology. Although this isn’t ‘exactly’ warp drive, it could lead to super-fast interplanetary travel. Which could then lead to warp drive. So come on NASA, make it so.

Next up, the trusty food replicator. Ever ready to present Jean-Luc with his ‘Tea, Earl Grey, Hot’, the replicator was a staple part of Star Trek. Although there isn’t yet a way to magic up cups of tea, we are close. We have 3D printers. They can print complex three-dimensional objects, so maybe in time, we’ll get an instant Early Grey cup of tea.

Another regular element of ships on Star Trek (and other sci-fi shows), is the tractor beam. Used for a variety of reasons, it was most commonly used to help tow stranded ships to safety. Now, bear with me. We don’t have to ability to use tractor beams to pull large objects along, but there is something similar. Albeit on a smaller scale. Optical tweezers work by holding and moving microscopic objects with two lasers. So, it’s not moving shuttle craft around space, but it’s a start. And who knows where that technology could lead in a few years?

Beam me up, Scotty…

How many of you have wished you could get instantly teleported to where you need to go? Maybe it’s being stuck in a traffic jam and late for work? Or maybe you’re at a social event stuck talking to the worlds most boring person. We’ve all wished there was a metaphorical Scotty to beam us out of a situation. Well, real-life transporters to move human beings are some way off. But there is a glimmer of hope. This all comes down to quantum mechanics. Back in 2015, scientists managed to transport photons across 63 miles of fibre optics. This was a big jump on what was achieved previously, so opens the door to more advancements in the coming years. Good old science.

Tricorders were a doctor’s best friend through Star Trek. They gave them the ability to find out what’s wrong by a quick scan over the body. It was also able to mend minor wounds. ‘Bones’ McCoy certainly enjoyed using it. There was a competition launched in 2014 for companies to create a Tricorder type device. It should be able to detect certain conditions. Although it won’t have the abilities that the fictional device had, it’s still exciting stuff.

One of the coolest things from the Star Trek universe was the cloaking device used by Klingon ships. It enabled them to go undetected from scans until they decloaked. How far off are we from having real-life cloaking devices? Maybe not as far off as you think. Scientists have created cloaking with a small assortment of electronic devices (metamaterials). They managed to change the reflection and refraction of light that we’re used to. This is cool as it opens the door for newer metamaterials to possibly give new effects. Although according to NASA, invisibility cloaking is still a way off.

Full speed ahead

There were many times where Captain Kirk ordered for full impulse power from Mr Sulu. The fictional impulse engines were based on fusion reactions, as opposed to the chemical reactions of real ones. We don’t have impulse power just yet, but they are a real possibility of future engineering. In recent years, ion drive engines have been used by various space agencies to propel probes to asteroids and comets. They’re much more efficient than chemical rockets and were mentioned a few times in Star Trek. Although electric cars are the imminent future, imagine being propelled down a highway with an ion thruster behind you?

One of the more science-focused elements of Star Trek was the matter and antimatter generation. It was one of the most efficient types of power sources for ships. Antimatter has been created in microscopic quantities, but not enough for power generation. Certainly not enough to power anything that resembles a starship.

Who knows what the future will bring, but advancements in science certainly give us optimism that the future just might be Star Trek.


That’s our list of Star Trek tech that’s almost here. What would you most like to see come to life from the shows? Let us know in the comments below.
