Spaced Out on TheArchive

Did you know it's World Space Week 2022, or did you space? This year's theme celebrates “Space and Sustainability!" And of course TheArchive has content that speaks to what's out there past the space litter and orbit of Elon Musk's satellites.

Speaking of, in the four part series Race to Mars, it's the year 2030, and the race to be the first to reach the Red Planet is on—and China is leading the way. China has stunned the world by leapfrogging over America's long-term plans and has landed a series of rovers in their quest to make the most important discovery in history—extraterrestrial life on Mars. 

Once again, America and its partners are thrust into a winner-take-all space race. But who will win?

Since Mars is on everyone's mind including ours' we are doubling down on red planet viewing. And when Bill Shatner and James Cameron weigh in, it's worth watching...

Mars Rising explores the quest for a manned mission to Mars. 

A companion to the expedition series Race to MarsMars Rising is a comprehensive examination of the challenges and the obstacles being faced by international space agencies and labs for the 21st century’s most heroic and deadliest expedition.

Starhyke takes us to the year 3034: humans have become a race of emotionless drones bent on destroying all other species in the galaxy. The Earth's Mightiest Ship, The Dreadnaught Nemesis, embarks on a mission to destroy their latest enemy: The Reptids, an alien race who plan to travel back in time to the 21st century and use a weapon that will enhance human emotions, hoping to change mankind’s destructive tendencies. A early prototype is released on the ship, and the crew experiencing emotions for the first time, with hilarious results.

In a so bad it's good Greydon Clark space adventure, Stargames, when a young prince is forced from his planet by an alien takeover, he must take intergalactic flight. He finds refuge on Earth and fights for the freedom of the galaxy.
