Welcome to Selparis Science and Space Exploration!
My name is Partap Singh and I’m a science fiction writer. If it sounds like I’m admitting to an addiction, there’s a good reason for that. But I’m not at all ashamed of it, and would like to infect as many people with my enthusiasm for science and science fiction as possible.
So, that’s what this site is all about. I think there’s a serious lack of science reporting and science fiction appreciation, especially in the United States (where I live). Having spent some time as a substitute teacher, I discovered that teenagers weren’t even clear about what science fiction was (the average response I got was either “that’s like Star Wars, right?” or “that’s about aliens, right?”) and their ideas about science was built out of boring school work and popular controversies. Combined with their dwindling reading aptitude, it’s looking like my future as a science fiction writer is going to be squashed before it ever has a chance to blossom.
I suppose that visitors to this site will mostly already be sold on science and science fiction, but I hope that some curious souls will wander in and find something they like. I also hope that, among those who already love it, this site serves to perpetuate their interest and enthusiasm.
