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.

The season 3 premier picked up where we left off at S2 with our intrepid heroes being in a whole lot of trouble! The Expanse has amped up the problems with betrayals, love & friendship lost, lack of trust and changing alliances. The enemy of my enemy is my ‘friend’ or something like that in space!
I’m very excited that I’ve joined the Afterbuzztv The Expanse Panel with Rick Hong and Kari Lane. Rick and I chatted about the premier with Cas Anvar last Sunday and the entire panel will be chatting S3 E2 tonight at 6PM
In the 23rd century nobody can hear you scream when tossed out of an airlock or blown up in the icy darkness of space. The lack of humanity in the hardscrabble future where children can be experimented and secret test subjects for nefarious purpose (isn’t kidnapping illegal) is a reminder that human life doesn’t hold much value especially for the poor and powerless belters.
This season is still going to be all about everyone trying to live by a moral core that’s pretty shaky especially on the Rocinante with a crew who’s been betrayed. James Holden (Steven Strait) has lost his jiminey cricket whispering ‘do the right thing’ after Naomi Nagata (Dominique Tipper) decided to ignore the crew vote and give a sample of the protomolecule to Fred Johnson (Chad Coleman) so that everyone is ‘equal’ (Earth, Mars, the Belt). The repercussions has left Naomi on the outs not just from her lover but her BFF Amos Burton (Wes Chatham) who has relied on her for direction as well. It looks as if both men will have to rely on themselves and grow but right now they are both hurt and not handling it very well. Alex Kamal (Cas Anvar) is the one trying to navigate his ship ‘family’ while dealing with the emotional fallout of juggling being a husband, father and a martian while failing at all three realizing what he really wants. As well as MAJOR Queen Bee moves with Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo) reminding everyone who’s boss (but that she should NEVER fire a gun again) and Roberta Draper (Frankie Adams) being the Marine I’d always o my six. Between the two of them getting in formation I think that Sadavir Errinwright (Shawn Doyle) better HOPE the truth doesn’t come out since neither of them are the ‘turn the other cheek’ type of women.
This was a solid premier episode that drops some major bombshells of how shifting alliances and thirst for power at all costs could lead to the death of humanity as well as who’s really a hero. As well as what we’ll chat about tonight about
Watching the last few moments of E2 looks like we have new shipmates, will they pick up the escape capsule and WHERE is the data with Sadavir Errinwright (Shawn Doyle) betrayal of Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo)?
Leave a comment below and don’t forget to watch myself, Rick Hong and Kari Lane at 6PM on Afterbuzztv talk about The Expanse
Tune in tonight at 6PM

I’m ready to TRY to escape with the ‘Expanse’ at San Diego Comic Con 2017
Alcon Television Group has an Escape Room with a theme from one of my favorite SyFy series The Expanse. Attendees get to play as operatives that are trapped on a derelict spaceship with system failure as two teams with 4 or 5 players in a race against time on the ship searching for the ‘Protomolecule’ for SCIENTIFIC research, try to avoid being infected and the life support ends!
The Expanse Escape Room will have props from the set, personalized photo and prizes for those who manage to escape with their lives and viable sample of the ‘Protomolecule’.
The Expanse Escape Room is scheduled for Thursday, July 20 – Sunday, July 23 in the lot between 2nd Avenue and J street (no badges are required).
