Well, it's been a while coming, but I'm pleased to let y'all know that the third and final episode of "Bad Universe" will air on The Discovery Channel tomorrow, April 19, at 11:00 a.m. Eastern (US) time -- but of course, check your local listings.

The episode is entitled "Death Stars", and is about the effects of solar flares and nearby supernovae. Like the other two, this was a lot of fun to put together, though the trip to Sandia Lab still haunts me a bit... but I won't give that away. You'll just have to see. I actually haven't seen the final cut since we put it together late last year, so to be honest when I watch it tomorrow it'll be a bit like seeing it again for the first time.

Speaking of which, my daughter will be in school when it airs, so I won't watch it until we can see it as a family. That means I won't be live-tweeting or anything like that.

And to answer the inevitable question: I don't know if the network is picking it up as a series or not. I expect the ratings of the airing tomorrow may play into that, so tell a friend! Or tell a few dozen.

I hope you like it, and have at least as much fun watching it as I did making it.
