This week on the io9 show We Come From The Future, we talk about how you're going to get your ass to space and stay there. We ponder the best options for artificial gravity, discuss the real meaning of "space opera," and then take a break with an experiment that could help you snuff out your friends — or just extinguish candles in a spooky way.

You can catch more episodes of the io9 Show on YouTube or Revision3. We're also on iTunes! Tune in every Friday for a giant dose of the future that will have you tripping your face off all weekend.
