    The only space in this strip is between Brewster’s ears.

    It always amazes me that in virtually every sci-fi movie where spacecraft go into battle, nobody ever thinks to wear a spacesuit!

    Now Brewster knows the terrible secret of space.

    Visual effects expensive. Gravity is free.

    As akw said, in some cases it is lazy writers who ignore the issue or assume some magical form of “artficial gravity”. In reality, spinning a spaceship or space station properly around a central axis may produce an effect similar to gravity.

    Don’t worry, folks, Brewster will lose the helmet the minute he sees a jar of cheese puffs . . . ☻

    Electro-gravity. In other sci-fi, the ship is a rotating cylinder – providing gravity toward the hull (and yes, gravity is nothing more than an accelerated frame of reference).

    But hey, if you’ve got warp drive, star-gates, or other FTL space travel, electro-gravity is a no-brainer.

    Now we know why the kid wears a helmet.
    Put Brewster in a speedo and have him flex.

    @GoodQuestion
    I believe that would just be replacing one helmet with another. i seem to recall he tends to get his head stuck in those jars

    He’s actually the Space Scout from Troop 54 that Elroy and Arthur are still looking for on the moon.

    I always liked the fact that there was a hint to Dr. Totenkopf’s big secret – in who was cast to play him!
