This week we read short stories that pertain to our theme of science fiction, which is life on other planets. Due to this a new part of our definition on what science fiction is was added. Even though having super advanced alien life is considered stereotypical, it appears so much in this genre of writing that it must be included, it is a stereotype for a reason and that reason is that it has to be apart of the main definition of science fiction (http://www.cnet.com/news/astronaut-reveals-that-aliens-have-better-technology-than-humans/).
We as a group only have one more short story to read along with finishing our novel story. As the weeks go on there is a stronger bond forming in our group, which in all honesty was pretty strong to begin with. This is a good thing because it is going to make our big project next week easier to do, and achieve a better score than if we hated each other.
The further along we get the more pinpoint our definition of science fiction is. At first it was along the lines of oh aliens have to either visit earth or we visit them, However, the definition has narrowed to the encounter to alien life has to have conflict, and that the humans have a distinct disadvantage weather it be physical or technological,
