Life On Earth
What is Science Fiction?
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. -Arthur C. Clarke
Many technologies have been developed simply because the idea for them came up in science fiction. From Captain Kirk's communicator (cell phones) to lasers, the effects of sci-fi can be felt throughout global society, The word robot was even created by Isaac Asmiov for one of his fictional works!
Science Fiction provides us with a way to question the effects things may have on humanity and provide a window into the possibilities brought about by modern theories, which may currently seem surreal, but could one day become a reality.
