Ascension

Secret missions into space to save the Earth are so hot right now. Of course, there’s Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, but now there’s also the Syfy miniseries Ascension. Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) stars in the show which surmises that, in 1963, the U.S. government sent a group of people into space to find and populate a new planet. Fifty years have passed at the start of the show and a new character shows up and poses the possibility that was never their purpose at all.

The six hour miniseries debuts on December 15 and, below, you can see a new trailer for it. There’s also a behind the scenes video discussing that other hot button topic, the reality vs. actual science debate. Watch the new Ascenion Syfy trailer below. Read More »
