Please tell us a bit about yourself:
I’m a retired scientific generalist and an applied mathematician with multiple advanced degrees and journal-published research that’s been downloaded around the world. My research might be interesting to Sci-fi writers since it provides an analog for the number of planets of various sizes that might be expected to form in accretion disks orbiting distant stars (Trappist 1, for example, with its 7 Earth-sized planets).

101 Guardians of the Galaxy 2 - When Trailers Disappoint
Last week the new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer premiered on Jimmy Krimmel Live. I didn't see it there being as I'm not in the US, but I caught it first thing Friday on my social media and watched it immediately. And...I was disappointed. Why?

My favorite science fiction movies affect my brain, while my favorite romance movies, obviously, affect my heart. So it’s logical and sweet that for a well-rounded experience, my favorite mix of genres is romantic science fiction. Not to be confused with “scientific romance,” which was the old term for science fiction, romantic sci-fi is of course any type of sci-fi with a very prominent love story.
