Mystery S.A.G.A.N. Theater 5000!

Did you know that conditions that would kill a human only tickle the blood of Turkish Mr. Spock? Neither did I! Join us every third Wednesday of the month (with re-runs scattered in between) to explore unique worldwide sci-fi adventures!

This will be a participatory viewing party modeled on Mystery Science Theater 3000- enter your pithy/ironic/hilarious running commentary in the main chat room as we watch! Keep an eye out for upcoming videos, or suggest your own in the group chat space.

See you out there!

Awesomeness!  Good to hear Zach!  I am unfortunately travelling starting next week through to mid-July, but I'll do my best to participate when I can.

Thanks Graham- I'm back! Unfortunately my defense had to be rescheduled for fall, but I did complete the first draft of my thesis and now I get to spend the summer cleaning it up and submitting for publication, yay! 

MST5000! will start viewings again soon, I came across a really funny parody of The Fifth Element last week that we'll be watching next. I'll also start posting more movie reviews, and everyone should feel free to post their own movie reviews. 

See you soon, and thanks for the encouragement!

Ah, I can totally understand that.  I've been out of the running for much of the last few months as I've been preparing for my comps and for our upcoming field work.  Hope things go well for Zach and he crushes his defense!

Hey Graham! Zach is on his home stretch for the dissertation defense, so I think not much will be going on here until the he gets 3 letters after his name!

Hey gang!  I haven't noticed any activity here in a while.  How are things going?  Any plans on screening a film anytime soon?

Hello everyone! We'll be watching Mac and Me in SAGANLive in about 5 mins, hope to see you there! Zach

Just a note to the group that we'll be returning for regular broadcasts in October, keep you eyes open! In the meantime, please feel free to post astrobio movie reviews, screening ideas, and anything astrobio/film related to the group comments page. See you soon!

Hello fellow Mystery SAGAN Theatergoers! We will be re-screening the Turkish version of Star Wars, aka The Man Who Saved The World, tonight at 5PM PDT/8PM EDT, please join us in the theater! Did you know that the epic battle against the Death Star was actually won by two dudes from Turkey, who then punched stones until their hands were tough enough to fight robots? I didn't! Luke Skywalker, eat your heart out!

¿Are the Venusian sulphuric acid clouds the by product of long dead anoxogenic photosynthetic organisms?

Posted by Andrew Planet on May 4, 2020 at 2:51pm 2 Comments

I just read the piece at the link below entitled "Study: Life might survive, and thrive, in a hydrogen world."

I'd been thinking on similar lines recently, on different atmospheres with early life, but I was considering anoxogenic bacteria whose byproduct is sulfur instead of molecular oxygen. ¿Had life evolved on Venus could its sulfuric clouds be the signature byproduct of such life with no branches ever evolving to produce the equivalent of Earth's Great…

100 years tomorrow 26th April 2020 since we looked beyond the Milky Way Galaxy

Exactly 100 years ago tomorrow, the subject on whether this Universe is larger than the Milky Way Galaxy was brought up publicly at an event sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences, known as The Great Debate. Until then the Milky Way was thought to be this Universe.  Conference at the NAS http://www.nasonline.org/about-nas/events/annual-meeting/nas157/
