From Dust To Mountains is proud to announce our slot on the new up and coming skateboarding game for IOS and Android called +Epic Skater.
+Epic Skater is skateboarding game for iOS and Android made by former developers of the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and Guitar Hero franchises. The game will be played as your traditional 2D side scroller in a variety of real world skateboarding locations across the globe. The core focus of the game is to take the coolest elements of skateboarding, and utilize touch controls to create a fun, challenging, and a VERY touch-intuitive experience that has never done before in the palm of your hand.
So now what? Well, for starters you need to take yourself over to http://www.epicskater.com for more details and donate to their Kickstarter (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/4255142/epic-skater). This is going to be a fun game… so get in on the action and gifts while you can.
From Dust To Mountains will be taking a small break, but that certainly does not mean we’re going away forever. The band will be spending some much needed time focusing on its families, day jobs, school, and whatnot for a while. There are also definite plans to move all of the FDTM crew to one city. Once we get these ducks in a row… FDTM will be far more productive and streamlined. This isn’t a project that is taken lightly by the band, and we want to make sure we are able to convey our life’s work the way it’s meant to be.
While we continue to work on the blueprint for the band’s optimistic future, the studio version of A Storm Larger Than Worlds, as well as a second exciting concept album… please be sure to spin the demo reels on our Soundcloud, as well as follow us on Google+ for band news, space nerdity, and geargasms.

We had mentioned in our first science post that Europa was a prime candidate to find life within our solar system outside of Earth. Recently the news got much better.
New research on Jupiter’s ice-covered moon Europa indicates the presence of a subsurface lake buried beneath frozen mounds of huge jumbled chunks of ice. While it has long been believed that Europa’s ice lies atop a deep underground ocean, these new findings support the possibility of large pockets of liquid water being much closer to the moon’s surface — as well as energy from the Sun — and ultimately boosting the possibility it could contain life.
