Alpha Centauri & Beyond will feature discussions about science fiction and science, aiming to marry the two. Hoping to attract writers and science experts across the country. Stay tuned for more information.

I'm your host, D. Wayne Dworsky.

Our premiere show will feature venturing out into the galaxy, en route to Alpha Centauri, our closest star system. Even so, the distances are so great that they defy our understanding. Still, we must reach out to the stars, seeking discoveries, as did Columbus in 1492. We must risk our lives to embark on such an adventure. On the other hand, we can imagine this kind of expedition in our minds, through the wonder of science fiction. We will talk about both worlds--the vast world of the cosmos and the relatively unexplored world of science fiction.

Some of the questions we may dare to ask: 1) Could there be a habitable planet in Alpha Centauri? 2) Could there be life at Alpha Centauri? 3) Is it possible for humans to travel to Alpha Centauri? Current technology would require a space craft to take 62,000 years to reach the system. (Even at one-tenth light speed, it would still take 40 years.) 4) How could we stay alive in a vessel for 40 years?

One of the story characters in our fictional sojourn among the stars includes one Buzz McKinley, who shares his enthusiasm for space exploration. He is a weird space cowboy, a dude with an attitude and a need for speed. A decommissioned officer in NASA, he is always seeking another chance, another opportunity to vindicate himself and another adventure to screw up.

What news is there about the moon?

Helium-3? Read about the Artemis Project:Lunar Helium-3 as an Energy Source

Stay tuned for more information.

The LCROSS lunar tracker observaton and sensing satelite found water ice in a region of a shaded crater on the Moon's South Pole. Take a look at what they found at LCROSS Also, see what NASA is up to.

What is NASA up to? What have observations found? We must look through the new James Web Telescope planet finder interferometer to seek answers. This 21 foot mirror scope is scheduled to be launched in 2014 with the promise of new discoveries. We will be in for a real treat. A full scale model is currently being displayed in New York City's Battery Park.

Thomas Lucus has put together a powerful video which provides a comprehensive picture of our potential as a species. See the Videoz

Alpha Centauri should have an Earth Like Planet is another aspect of our quest to venture out into the cosmos. It is a blog site that shares ideas about the feasibility of such an expedition.

Catch up to Dr. Michio Kaku's pursuits. The City College professor also hosts a TV series Sci-Fi Science. Listen to his lectures: The Big Think

And don't forget about Bill Nye, the science guy!

Bill Nye, the science guy, is very much alive and still kicking!

Someone (remaining anonymous), pulled a great prank in The Onion. The writer reported that Bill Nye was killed in a science experiment that had gone terribly wrong. None of this is true. Bill Nye, the science guy, is very much alive and still kicking!
