Space Exploration/Space Fiction

Question
I am writing a science fiction story and script for a comic book I will draw in the future.  In this I tell a story of man traveling across space and gets trapped in another galaxy on another planet.  I was hoping you could give me some information about space in general.  And also maybe links to where I can read up more about.  I want to know about black holes, different dimensions, theories, traveling at speeds of light, galaxies, planets, it's hard to describe exactly, but I want to know about space.   It's just I need more in depth resources, also any information about this stuff would help a lot so I can keep it as factual as possible or at least follow certain laws when I do it.  I have studied biology and chemistry, but not too much about space other than the basics you know.  Thank you for whatever you can do.

Hi there,
the great thing about writing stories set in the future or in other solar systems is that anything is possible! Let you mind wander, artists usually smoke stuff to get going but this is NOT generally considered as good advice...

I think Carl Sagan presented the best ever explanation of things in space in his series "Cosmos" even though I dont like the atheist. I am sure this is easy to find, it is also on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=sagan+cosmos

Patrick Moore taught me astronomy as a child on local TV (BBC). https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=astronomy+series+patrick+moore

The newest hero in this field is Niel deGrasse Tyson. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_deGrasse_Tyson

Here are some good educational videos too: http://edutube.org/en/category/space-astronomy

Watching some space movies like the Star Wars trilogies will help a lot.

I can answer most questions about the past, present and future space missions. As a hobby since the 1969 Moon Landing, I have been watching and studying space travel and have many resources and theories concerning the future. I have visited NASA many times and have communication with ESA. I have developed a new theory as to what gravity is, mainly that tachyons (bosons) are radiating beyond the speed of light from black-holes and it is those waves when hitting material, causing the material to be heavy or "appear" to attract each other. This is why the universe is expanding.

Experience

Hobby but I would give 5 years of my salary to travel in space for just a few days!
