We discuss our theories on the Halo lore, explore the science behind Halo, and provide community updates.
How does the gravity assist maneuver, aka an orbital slingshot, work in real life, and does halo portray it in a scientifically-accurate manner?
Based on the events of Renegades, it is apparent that my theory on the AI Little Bit sending the Spirit of Fire to the Ark was not exactly correct, but can be easily fixed by exchanging Little Bit for 343 Guilty Spark, which is almost exactly what happened during the events of that book.
Based on what we know about the Nova bomb from Ghosts of Onyx and Envoy, how large must a Nova bomb be, and is it small enough to be feasibly built by 26th century humans and actually used in combat?
Update to our Halo 5: Guardians Spartan Company progress towards earning the Achilles armor and helmet for January 2019.
A lot has changed with Project MJLORENIR in the last several months. Check out what MJLORENIR Mk II looks like!
The chance encounter that Kilo-Five and Naomi-010 had with her father, Staffan Sentzke, on Venezia was actually an elaborate plan by then head of ONI Margaret Parangosky to flush out a known terrorist, test her protege Serin Osman’s ability to lead and make hard decisions, and clear help clear her conscience from the moral travesty that was the Spartan-II program.
What would happen to a magnetic accelerator cannon (MAC) round if it missed its target, and are there hundreds of MAC rounds flying aimlessly in space, waiting to destroy a random ship it comes into contact with?

The UNSC Spirit of Fire, adrift in space without a slipspace drive from 2531 until 2559, was sent to The Ark through a portal by the Forerunner AI Little Bit, not Mendicant Bias as many people have assumed, to save the ship from the reach of Cortana and the Created.
How plausible is the Single Occupant Exoatmospheric Insertion Vehicle (SOEIV / ODST drop pod) and what would it feel like to perform a combat drop in one? There is a bonus short story at the end.
My E3 2018 predictions for what the next Halo would be were mostly wrong. But that doesn't stop me from making another set of wild predictions.
Introducing Project MJLORENIR, Pocast Evolved’s new lore section of the website, and the lastest and largest addition ever!
What is up with the gravity on Meridian, the colony visited in Halo 5: Guardians?
343 Industries, along with Microsoft Corporation, are planning on creating a single game called 'Halo' to be released as the next mainline Halo game, which will contain all future Halo first-person shooter releases, including all multiplayer updates and single-player campaigns.
How much surface area do the Forerunner mega-structures actually have, including the halos themselves, the Lesser Ark (Halo 3 Ark / Installation 00), and the Sarcophagus (formerly Onyx / location of ONIRF Trevelyan), and how do they compare to the Earth and other common celestial bodies?
The events of The Forerunner trilogy foreshadow the upcoming events of the Reclaimer Saga. The corruption of the most powerful AI (Mendicant Bias/Cortana) by the Flood, and the theft of a Halo by said AI, foreshadows dark times coming to the future of the Halo series.
Could the element that was used to kill humans on Sedra, Element 121, exist, and could the radiation pulse that it caused actually happen?

How feasible is the Planet of Blue and Red as it is described in Halo: Broken Circle?
The events of the Human-Forerunner War, the Human-Flood War, and the Forerunner-Flood War went EXACTLY how the Primordial/Flood wanted it, including the activation of the Halo Array and the annihilation of the Forerunners and the Flood.
