Traveling to Other Solar Systems Becomes More Possible Through Hibernation

Today’s Nerdist News Talks Back saw Senior Editor Dan Casey, Science Editor Kyle Hill, and Associate Editor Kyle Anderson join host Jessica Chobot in discussing Han Solo’s new director, the new title and poster for the sequel to Jurassic World, what’s next for Spider-Man after he loses both Uncle Ben and Uncle Tony, and how humans could potentially become better than bears once again! This time at hibernating.

Following Tuesday’s news that directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller had exited the Han Solo anthology film, Ron Howard, the man behind Apollo 13, was announced to finish the project. Considering Lord and Miller are big proponents of a more improv-heavy style of directing, it will be interesting to see how this movie turns out with them leaving so far into production. Either way, it should make you feel better to know that our very own Kyle Hill thought the previous directors were a single man named Lorden Miller, and his Because Science videos get millions of views. So there’s hope for everyone.

In more movie news, the new dino movie on the block has an official title: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The movie’s tagline, “Life finds a way,” harkens back to the famous Jeff Goldblum line from the original film, albeit without the iconic endless pause. Once more details come out, we’ll be sure to…uh…get back to you.

According to our friends at The Hollywood Reporter, Iron Man will not be returning for the next Spider-Man movie (why is only one of those hyphenated?), and an unnamed avenger will team up with the wall crawler instead. Additionally, an Infinity War cast photo might point to a step back for Tony Stark.

For thousands of years one question has plagued the human race: How can we beat the bears? Fast forward to 2017 and we’re more intelligent, wealthier, have sharper claws. And now, Phys.org thinks we could become better at hibernating. New advancements in stasis technology are bringing humans ever closer to the ability to hop in a star ship, go to sleep, and wake up in another solar system. Granted, we’d need to figure out how to get there, but bears can’t do that either.
