Almost endless are the movies, shows, games that present to us visions of space colonization, spaceships, supposed aliens and space wars. They serve a useful purpose in kindling our awareness to possible space life.
There is usually a misrepresentation of the realties of living successfully for many years off earth in an “awayhome”. A gross over simplification.
In reality, a serious effort to colonize a distant planet requires an assembly of long term space craft with no less than 40,000 humans and all the other accoutrements of life (such as bees) whereas the scifi shows leaves us to think that only a few humans is needed.
In that it sets the viewer to thinking about the future this series will include posts and links of science fiction articles but omitting stories that we see as being only sensational.
