Show Notes

Dying Sun

Sun science. Stages and timeline of sun death.


Solar radiation. Reflector shields. Ion drive. Magical gravity. Oxygen garden. Sun room.

The Crew

LOVE pragmatic Chris Evans. Our favorite person. Cillian is always great. Earth room holo tech. The different captains and their madness. Jumping through space! PS: we’ve covered this before, in episode 1.

Third Act

Thoughts on the third act juxtaposed with the first two.

Tough Decisions

Why return trip? Rendezvous a good idea? Thinning the herd. Pragmatic Chris Evans again.

Bomb Scene

We looooooooooove the score around this whole thing.


So if you wake up one morning and it’s a particularly beautiful day, you’ll know we made it. Okay, I’m signing out.
