The Evolution of Stars: The Unusual Astronomy of Mass Effect, Halo, and StarCraft II

Science fiction games are littered with dead and dying stars. Mass Effect has its supernova-blasted Mu Relay, eezo mines near neutron stars, and Adepts slinging miniature black holes around. In the Halo universe, artificially-triggered supernovae are the ultimate weapon for exterminating Flood-infested systems. In Spore, you can use black holes as entrances to the galactic subway system of wormholes, and in Starcraft 2, there is a mission where a star "goes nova", enveloping the map in fire. (Halo, Mass Effect, PC, PS3, StarCraft, Tech, Xbox 360)

Kinda hoping they do something similar to "Star Wars Tech" or whatever it was called on the History Channel with the Mass Effect Series or Halo Series for that matter

At the very least there will be fan vids and articles...but I can agree for something more substantial and mainstream.

Surely, with Halo 4 coming out, you'd think that they would jump at the chance to do something like that.

How many Ancient Aliens re-runs can the History channel run without looking towards Halo for future episodes?
