The Science in Science Fiction

The Science in Science Fiction | The History of Sci-Fi Film | Scoop.it

Science fiction involves much more than one eyed-aliens, shiny robots and fantastical spaceships. In fact, many of the most outlandish pieces of science fiction have their basis in scientific facts. At the heart of a science fiction novel is the question, “what if?”  What if we lived on another planet? What if robots had human characteristics? What if a strain of bacteria grew and infected the world?

It is a prime example of the evolution of Science Fiction from 50 years ago.
