The Size of it All

By: Les Johnson

Description: This article is a short breakdown of the planets and starts whithin our galaxy as well as information on stars within our galaxy and our neighboring galaxies.

Putting the Science in Science Fiction

By: Tedd Roberts

Description: This article describes the influence of the evolving science world and how it directly affects the creative part of the 'New Age' science fiction novels and movies.

Perhaps it is because I am now one of those supposedly older, wiser professors who should think professional science all the time and not discuss SF with my students.
