The 2018 International Space Development Conference welcomes the stars and producers of ‘The Expanse’ to discuss the science of the series. The Expanse is a series that takes place in the future where mankind has conquered our solar system and spread but we learn we aren’t the only intelligent lifeforms after discovering the protomolocule. The series is a mix of humanity, special effects and the use of the true concepts of science and physics. It’s why it’s exciting that they are appearing at the West Coast gathering of the world’s greatest scientist, engineers, astronauts, and space entrepreneurs who have been inspired by science fiction greats from Star Trek to Star Wars to Doctor Who to Battlestar Galactica and future innovators will include The Expanse on that list. SYFY channel did not renew the series but passionate fans have launched a renew The Expanse campaign and have appealed to Amazon Video, Netflix, Hulu, and the Networks.

This year Jeff Bezos will be accepting the Gerard K. O’Neill Memorial Award for Space Settlement Advocacy at the 2018 ISDC hopefully they will cross paths and Mr. Bezos will choose to add The Expanse to the Amazon Prime lineup. The Expanse fandom is looking at numerous streaming platforms to renew the science fiction series with a 100% approval on Rotten Tomatoes the SyFy #1 series is still seeking a new home in our galaxy! If you want to attend the conference or the panel details are below.

The Science of the Expanse panel moderated by Kyle Hill is at 5PM with Naren Shankar, (Showrunner/Creator), Cas Anvar (Alex Kamal), Wes Chatham (Amos Burton), Steven Strait (Jim Holden), Shohreh Aghadashloo (Chrisjen Avasarala), and Cara Gee (Drummer) if you haven’t seen The Expanse (SyFy Network). The series is set in a future which finds the solar system is populated and prospering. The writing team on The Expanse works hard to keep special effects and concepts true to science and physics whenever possible. Cas Anvar, who plays starship pilot Alex Kamal, will join fellow cast members to discuss the science of the show.

I’m part of the 74% of people who don’t believe that we are alone in the universe.

How can Earth be the only planed in the cosmos with intelligent life?  Are we the oldest race or are there other intelligent beings living their own lives looking up to the sky wondering the exact same question?  If you missed Sunday’s event premier of ‘Are We Alone’ don’t despair since it’s still continuing with an episode that asks the question ARE WE ALONE?  This episode of Wormhole with Morgan Freeman have scientists pondering ‘Is God an Alien Concept’?

I am fascinated by the pull of religion vs science as if the two are magnets or (better description) at war well only ONE can be the victor.    I think that there is a God, that science is right and that aliens are on other planets.  I’m not saying they are humanoid and look just like us, think like us and worship like us but I do believe that we are not unique in the cosmos.  One day we will meet aliens and I (for one) hope they are friendly.  I’d hate for humans to be the indigenous people discovered by an advanced people who look at us as not ‘equal’ and only worthy of eradication.

So mark your calendar for a special episode on Wednesday, March 5th with Morgan Freeman and let’s talk ‘Is God an Alien Concept’??? Is it blasphemy to think that there are other species not created in our God’s image?

“Is God An Alien Concept?”

Morgan Freeman

Airing only during ARE WE ALONE? WEEK, an all-new episode of the critically acclaimed series THROUGH THE WORMHOLE WITH MORGAN FREEMAN features scientists seeking answers to the controversial question – “Is God An Alien Concept?”

A Special Episode for ARE WE ALONE? WEEK

World Premieres March 5 at 10 PM ET/PT

Only on Science Channel

What If We Discovery an Extraterrestrial Civilization?You know how I know?  It’s because the Science Channel is having a marathon this Sunday exploring the how, why and what.  I’ve never understood how people believe we are the only sentient life in the cosmos.  All you have to do is look around and see that intelligence doesn’t belong just to humans.  It’s in the eyes of a dog as he plots to get a snack, when you see an ape looking at a person looking at her and you can SEE that it’s wondering about you or when I look at the stars and wonder if someone far away is looking at the stars thinking about what’s out their.  I know that my intellectual curiosity isn’t at the level of a genius and that I don’t know the science behind the ‘big bang’ or whatever you think created life but how can anyone think we are all alone.  We aren’t all alone on our own planet …

 

the search continues

This Sunday, March 31 Science Channel hosts SPACE SUNDAY, an entire day devoted to deep science programming, with the world’s leading experts giving their insight to exploration beyond our planet beginning at 6:00AM (ET/PT).
