We tracked Santa by NORAD on his journey knowing there was a special package he was delivering from NASA, and low and behold, look what we found in our stockings, Errrrr the WHR servers the day after Christmas!

That’s right scClick to learn more about Warren Betts of Zoomwerks!ience and science fiction fans, we are talking about a wonderful event probing at the roots of television and movie series that need accurate foundations for their Sci-Fi productions. Therefore, we feel most fortunate to be able to bring you the NASA 101 video panels from a special science seminar conducted recently. The four videos are fascinating, featuring detailed discussions about the elemental components that make science fiction and movies and television realistic and believable.

We thank the Team at NASA and Mr. Warren Betts (above left) of ZoomWerks for their professional courtesy in providing these wonderful science related videos so we can all enjoy them!

WormholeRiders News Agency had planned on attending, however due to a failure of a very expensive power supply in the primary backup San Francisco server for on-line content, we found ourselves at the San Francisco office to safeguard against data loss in case of failure of our several on-line servers located at off-site facilities. Sadly I had to cancel my trip to report LIVE on things like this:

Having been invited, but unable to attend, WHR was on conference and therefore did have a remote news support capability to provide access to the fantastic NASA video panels you will see here today. Famous actors like John Pyper-Ferguson of Caprica and actresses like Anne Lockhart of the original Battlestar Galactica (Lt. Sheba) among others were attending the festivities.

Learn more about Anne Lockhart at her official web site!NASA 101 was where scientific legends, celebrities in their own right appeared. These science giants included the likes of Michio Kaku, Science Guy Bill Nye, Bert Ulrich, James MacLean, Doug Hudgens, Pam Conrad, Chris McKay, Jen Eigenbrode, Lucy McFadden, Don Yeomans, Waleed Abdalati, Mike Freilich, Gentry Lee, Michael Meyer, and Jay Falker!

The panels were also graced with the presence of famous NASA astronauts Mike Massimino (Astro_ Click to visit & follow Patricia A. Beninati on Twitter!Mike on Twitter), Leland Melvin and Tracy Caldwell!

What was of specific interest to our news team is that producers whom we have reported on were known to be in attendance. Of whom do I speak? Our sources confirm the persons of interest were none other than one the owner of Centerboro Productions, writer, producer and director Ms. Patricia A. Beninati and partner Michael K. Anderson (not pictured).

WHR has confirmed the appearance of Ms. Beninati and her partner Michael K. Anderson at the NASA 101 event is quite interesting and was in fact no coincidence! Why you may ask?

Because their production company is known to be working on several big budget movie and television productions including the The Newcomers Film and V Movie (of which Ms. Beninati is one of the producers)., DMAN and several others including movies of the week with various networks as we have previously reported.

Ms. Beninati is pictured below with NASA Astronaut Mike Massimino!

Had we been able to attend, we might have brought you interviews with more details, however WormholeRiders News Agency and our entire staff are under non disclosure about THE NEWCOMERS FILM.

The expected Press Release from Ms. Beninati of Centerboro Productions is to be made available in the near future! We can confirm however that in addition to the episodic series mentioned above, several major motion picture and other celebrities were being contacted to star in THE NEWCOMERS FILM!
