This is not a group for “strange artwork” per se. The theme here is Strange Science and The Unexplained.
Nor are we a science fiction group… exactly. Our focus overlaps (science fiction after all, is BASED on fringe ideas and the unexplained) but here we emphasize the theories and the possibilities ~ not the fiction! So space travel, time travel, aliens, exo-planets, future tech (androids, robots, cyborgs), UFO’s and alternate dimensions are among the many topics we invite you to explore.
We walk the line here between mythology and history/ between “official” science and the more obscure/ between the Proven and the yet-to-be confirmed. If you’re dealing with a topic you might see on Through the Wormhole, Mysteries of the Unexplained, Paranormal Mysteries, Ancient Aliens, Unsealed/Aliens, UFO Files, Monsters and Cryptids, NASA’s Unexplained, etc. ~ then its probably our cup of tea!
NO Fan Art, please! We DO NOT not accept tribute work based on pop cuture. If you’re illustrating “Star Travel” ~ perfectly acceptable. But don’t post the Tardis or the Enterprise! We want to see YOUR ideas/images, not those done by someone else!
(For science fiction, including tribute art, check the Sci Fi Group. It’s all welcome, there!)
The group now accepts WRITING: but ONLY writing which relates to our group theme! It must describe or discuss the topics we cover here, whether from first-hand experience or from documentaries, articles, etc. Poetic license is acceptable…but NO rambling poetry/free verse, and definitely no romance or love-poems! Any material deemed inappropriate or off-theme, will NOT be accepted, so stick to what we do here: Science, Fringe Science, the Unexplained/ the paranormal!
No porn, no animal abuse, no overt violence or gore! Tasteful nudity ok in context but if you “think” you need to use the filter, do. Anything deemed inappropriate or unsuitable for RB will be disqualified.
No Untitled work! And only 4 per day, please! Don’t flood the group. Please Limit your Variants (Work virtually identical to other work you’ve posted here). Let your images be fresh/unique.

Remember… The Universe itself is Unexplained and Unexplored! And even what we THINK we know is not so certain, so the playing field’s big! If in any doubt about the type of artwork we accept, please see our gallery and our features.
We don’t ask you to believe – just report! So if you’re a skeptic, please follow RB’s rules of etiquette. Play nice!
