What is Experience Daliona?

Experience Daliona began as a fictional organization in a futuristic science-fiction book series written by founder and lead educator, Alex Martin. Although the Zenith Now science magazine is the only branch of the organization explicitly named in his current books, the Experience Daliona organization manages ecotourism and scientific outreach on the planet Daliona, which is explored in Resonance, the second book in Alex's current series.

 

Alex created Experience Daliona in 2015 as a website to act as a fictional travel agency and science blogging space, giving his readers the ability to explore more of his world beyond the pages, a world he himself sees in his head every day. But in 2018, three years after Resonance's publication, Alex founded Sidewalk Science Center in Savannah, Georgia, providing passerby with an opportunity to engage with science education in public spaces, for free.

With these programs, and more experience to come in the future, we're bringing a vision of Daliona to life. Our long-term goal is to build an educational and recreational campus and resort that launches global outreach programs. As we work to achieve that vision, we will pursue our passions, impact our communities, and create a brighter, healthier future on Earth and beyond.
