Welcome, Lord British

In the non-space publication PC Gamer in the July issue, we find that video game celebrity and fellow Austinite Richard Garriott will have a regular column where we will find out about his PC Games from NC Soft like Tabula Rasa and also "what one says to Stephen Hawking while riding the 'vomit comet.'"

While technically he rode ZEROG non-vomit comet with only 12 parabolas (which doesn't give me much hope for the space editing in the magazine), Garriott's space persona includes being Vice Chairman of Space Adventures, the company that has the most space tourism cost of goods sold. He is also the son of astronaut Owen Garriott.

So welcome, Lord British! And keep up the good work bringing science fiction to digital--and analog--life.

Richard rode the vomit comet with Stephen? And his son, Owen, is an astronaut? Awesome!

I am a huge fan of Richard and UO. Actually, UO is whence my 'Šhard' moniker originated.

Thanks for pointing this out, Sam!

(the comments filter seems to have an issue with the word 'O n l i n e' as I tried to spell out UO as 'Ultima O n l i n e, curious as to why)

Richard's father is an astronaut, yes.
