For the third year in a row, Discover hosted a panel on science in science fiction at this year’s Comic-Con. This year’s edition was moderated by Phil Plait and featured a great lab-meets-film panel: Jamie Paglia (creator of Eureka); Kevin Grazier (JPL planetary physicist, Science Not Fiction blogger); Zack Stentz (writer for Fringe, Thor); and Sean Carroll (Caltech theoretical physicist, Cosmic Variance blogger).

  1. I do not accept this blog post. Nevertheless, I had researched with Yahoo and I’ve found out that you’re right and I had been thinking in the wrong way. Carry on publishing top quality content like this.
