Meta Should we remove "What would X sport in space look like ?" questions

Do posts like (What would X Sport look like in space?) belong in this community? It has nothing to do with science, some physics at best, and even then, only to a certain degree.

Meta Suggestion about the community name

I suggest alteration of the name from "Scientific Speculation" to a more appropriate "World, Speculation". Why? Most questions they seek to answer are somewhat based on science, but rarely take s...

I feel like science fiction doesn't have many sports, other than the occasional laser battle or fantasy sword duel. I'd like to start a discussion series about sports in a low-gravity/no-gravity e...
