This astrophysicist is unlocking the secrets of dark matter
by Daryle LockhartIn the distant future, a wormhole appears. Humanity sends a spaceship through the anomaly to investigate, but its crew is never heard from again. After years of no contact or activity from the wormhole at all, three humans and an AI get stuck in it. They then start to find their way back to Earth. This sounds like a science fiction drama the likes of which you’d binge-watch for an entire weekend. I was surprised to find that I was hooked on this story…in audio form.

You do it again. Same place. And you add a few new things! This year marks the third year for the festival, and this year’s selection of independent science-fiction films from around the world will be unveiled at the Babylon Cinema in Berlin, Germany on November 29 and 30, 2019.
by Daryle LockhartThis month, History Channel debuted a new series that revolves around secret U.S. Air Force investigations into UFO encounters and unexplained phenomenon. It continues tonight. These investigations into these strange events are taken on by Dr. Josef Allen Hynek in the 1950s and 1960s. Hynek, an astrophysicist, and eventually, a famous ufologist, is known to many in the UFO community, but even a casual fan will recognize him.
