The galaxy contains countless billions of planets we might colonize, and we may build far more living area as space station habitats and megastructures, but Earth will always be unique and living here prized. Today we will see what we can do make Earth larger, by adding many layers of terrain in concentric spheres around us.

Giant Robots, or Mecha, in films and comic books fascinate audiences, but are usually considered impractical even with improved technology in the future. Today we'll look at them and concepts like power armor and exoskeletons and see if such suits might have a practical role in warfare or uses other than combat.

Perhaps one of the most common technologies seen in science fiction is anti-gravity and gravity manipulation. Today we'll examine if there's an scientific pathways in physics to permit such technology, and what sort of amazing options it might offer if developed in the future.

Fears about technology and it's impact on our civilization, or on individuals even when new tech is net benefit, are often shown to us in fiction as giving rise to technophobic cultures that abandon science. Today we'll take a look at such concerns and if they might be common or rare, rogue examples. Or if, counter-intuitively, they benefit us in settling the galaxy in the future.

Earth has often been compared to a spaceship, one that's successfully orbited our star and the galaxy many times over billions of years. So what about moving our planet or even converting it or another world into a spaceship? Can we use entire planets to cross the intergalactic void to settle planets in distant galaxies or superclusters? And what sort of engine and drive could move a whole planet?

One of the biggest reasons for colonizing other worlds is to ensure we don't die with our own sun, but even those alien suns we might travel to will die one day. And yet, our image of stars living than erupting spectacular as a red giant or supernova, present a somewhat false impression, as those stellar remnants often last far longer than the stars which bore them. Could civilizations survive around these dead stars? Could they even outlast the End of the Universe, as the last stars fade away?

Science Fiction often presents us technologies that go far beyond the realms of known science, but many of these, such as force fields, inertial dampeners, anti-gravity, or faster than light travel might be possible if our future knowledge of physics holds some surprises. Today we will look at many technologies that are currently fanciful but may not be ruled out, what we call Clarketech, and consider what their implications would be if we could get them working.

A new paper has come out discussing how the Fermi Paradox might be explained by the rigors of traveling space for interstellar colonization, causing settlements to be rare and and possibly not long-lived. We'll look at this model for spreading humanity out across the galaxy and see what insights or flaws it might have.

The Galaxy is an enormous place, and moving from your planet to worlds in a different solar system over vast interstellar distances will be no easy voyage. Today we'll consider how someone would go about hitchhiking around on spaceships, as a tribute to Sci-fi's master of humor, Douglas Adams.

The possibility that aliens might be regularly visiting Earth is one of the most popular Fermi Paradox solutions. In this episode we will look at UFOs and flying saucers theories and arguments, as well as examining the logic and possible motives of such extraterrestrial visitors.

To celebrate Valentine's Day, we'll take a look at relationships in the future, both the romantic and platonic friendships. We'll see what options and challenges might lay in store as we have to tackle the rising effect of social media and online dating, as well as more advanced technologies like virtual reality, artificial intelligence, cloning, and life extension.

The galaxy is an immense place, with billions of solar systems to colonize, and interstellar voyages to even nearby stars can take centuries. In order to explore and settle those new worlds, we may wish to take advantage of a type of generation ship that stops at planet after planet, colonizing each in turn, and entire colonial fleets that grow as they venture outward from Earth, creating new spaceships as often as terraforming new worlds.

Our current theory of evolution holds that all life on Earth originated from a single, simple life form billions of years ago. But what if that life did not originate on Earth? In this episode we'll explore the theory of Panspermia, that origin of life might be extraterrestrial in origin, and that the abiogenesis of that origin life form we descend from might have descended from the sky in a comet or some other alien source. We will explore the impact this concept would have on the Fermi Paradox if true.

The Dark Forest Theory is a proposed solution to the Fermi Paradox from Cixin Liu which suggests all alien civilizations remain intentionally quiet, hiding from SETI efforts and possible hostile civilizations. It also argues they may attack any civilization which does not remain silent, like us.

Many a land was settled by exiles and prisoners, and many a science fiction story contemplates that we may use such methods when colonize new worlds. But are such methods viable? and what methods might we use in the future for dealing with criminals?

Historically humanity has often taken shelter in caves or underground, and it is often thought we might do so again, on other worlds, in event of disasters, or simply because we run out of room on the ground above. In this episode we'll explore the concept of building underground, from simply subways and basements to advanced bunkers or entire cities beneath the Earth.

Without the Sun our world would be a frozen wasteland, and for this reason any efforts to colonize the galaxy must focus on huddling in the tiny oases of warmth around stars, separated from each other by enormous gulfs of interstellar space. But what if we could make our own stars at the places of our choosing? And can we merely mimic nature or create stars unlike anything which nature has formed?

Many believe humanity's lies among the stars, colonizing distant planets around alien suns, or perhaps building artificial worlds, space habitats, and megastructures. But what if instead of traveling to worlds far away in outer space we create virtual worlds to live in instead, colonizing inner space? We will explore this possibility of simulated universes and what it might mean for humanity, and also ask if this might be a solution to the Fermi Paradox, the strange absence of other life in our own universe.

35 years ago, Science Fiction's Grandmaster, the late Isaac Asimov, made some predictions for 2019. As we head into the New Year, we'll take a look at those predictions and see what he got right, what he got wrong, and what it tells us about trying to predict our own future, 35 years from now.
