Hollywood have been producing a surge of fantastic Science Fiction TV series that is filling our entertainment prime time like Dark Matter, Continuum, Salvation and the recent big hit The Expanse that was cancelled in its third season by its original carrier SYFY network. This show was renewed and picked up by Amazon under pressure from the loyal 130,000 fans who signed a petition at change.org.
The announcement was made while Jeff Bezos the founder and CEO of Amazon, who became the wealthiest entrepreneur on the face of this planet according to Forbes whose fortune now exceeds 125 Billion of US Dollars, was speaking at the National Space Society’s International Space Development Conference in Los Angeles who was attending as the owner of Blue Origin.
“I was talking to the cast half an hour ago, before the break for dinner started,” Bezos said. “I was telling them that we are working hard at Amazon to save The Expanse, but it wasn’t a done deal yet. During dinner, ten minutes ago, I just got word that The Expanse is saved.” He did not only save a very important Science Fiction show but also paved the way for a glimpse of our future.
Many of these powerful companies are reaching very high in the pursue of space travel like Tesla’s Elon Musk SpaceX with his ambition to colonize Mars and Virgin’s Richard Branson Virgin Galactic. Blue Origin was even chosen by NASA among the six companies for developing what is called a 10 “tipping point” technologies that will have an impact on lunar lander and deep space rocket engines.
These powerful private companies are trying to shape the future of the human survival by creating a refuge in outer space in case of an apocalypse from the outcome a nuclear war or a deep space asteroid impact that will bring full destruction to our planet.
Hollywood have a different twist to the topic and it is highlighted in their TV Science Fiction shows that we mentioned above by predicting that the hidden fate of humanity is in the hands of these majestic technological companies who will one day shape our vision of space exploration and prepare us to colonize our neighboring planets until we leave our Solar System, the Milky Way and head for this Vast Universe. It will give us enough awareness to be ready for our first encounter with Alien Species.
