G’day, but not said in a way that can be traced back to drunk ancestors as some might like us to believe, from this Aussie magazine, radio show, and host of same. Hi, I’m Nuke, and this is, as you may have apprehended, the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Ambartsumian’s Knot. What? Well, it’s like this. The Knot is a part of a group known as the guitar, but this is not for playing. It’s a dwarf about 400 million light years distant, dancing in a spray of gravitational forces ripping streams and knots of stars into patterns that we can see.

Here at AntiSF we can see that far, but this episode has no guitars, although it may have some knots of the mind, and streams and sprays of consciousness. Please stick with me for the next half an hour or so for three ripping speculative stories and just a little music to bind them.
