from Blastr.com

The show, which will air on Syfy in the U.S. and Space in Canada, follows a trio of intergalactic bounty hunters (aka reclamation agents) as they chase down fugitives throughout the Quad — a distant planetary system teetering toward a bloody class war.

This 10 part series comes from the creative mind of showrunner Michelle Lovretta — who gave us  Lost Girl — and stars Hannah John-Kamen (Black Mirror), Aaron Ashmore (Warehouse 13) and Luke MacFarlane (Person of Interest).

Researchers have shown that time can run backwards as well as forwards.

The research centres around the strange behaviour of particles in quantum mechanics. In the quantum world it is possible for a moving object to exist in two states at once – a particle and a wave – but it is impossible to see it in both states at once.  In a new experiment, however, scientists found an action that occurred after they attempted to observe an atom seemed to determine whether they saw it as a wave or a particle.

Librarian for the University of New Brunswick Kristian Brown had been sifting through it’s science fiction collection for a digitization project when he came across the script, dated March 15, 1976. A script which Lucsasfilm confirms looks like a real version of an early script.

A few of the changes from this script to the film we ended up getting are well known, for example: Luke Starkiller rather than Skywalker, the film called “Saga I” rather than “Episode IV.” But the big change is whether Han shot first. Says Brown: “I’ll tell you one thing, right now. Based on the script, I can tell you 100 per cent, Han shot first.”
