Hyper-Futurism or Dystopia, Which Is Best?
Either it will be a technological gadget-fest where there will be flying cars, holographic projections, and robot servants; or it will be a desolate future where we’ve wrecked the environment, caused nuclear winters, or enacted police states through governments either turning on its own people or another country. So what are the best examples of these two polar opposites? Let’s have a look.

Earthbase
Many space stories told on Planet Earth involve communication across the vast universe. In perhaps our first well-known space movie, Star Wars, an important message was stored by robot, R2-D2. Today's messages still involve, to some extent, basic themes found in the Star Wars series of movies: space war, space government, space business, and our collective desire to understand our history, faiths, etc. The Star Wars movie series, including The Empire Strikes Back, has been developed into a nine ...
