Sebastian Cordero's Europa Report aims to put the science back in science fiction, and what better venue than Comic-Con to show off his film? The story follows a mission to Jupiter's moon Europa, seeking evidence of life. See, there is an ocean beneath the icy surface we know about and now NASA scientists are heading there to find out firsthand. What they discover may cause a little shock and awe.
Cordero will be there, as will composer Bear McCreary (Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead), producer Ben Browning and actress Karolina Wydra. Like we said, the science on this film is fully represented, as the panel will be led by astronomer Dr. Phil Plait.
