Ever read a science fiction story and wondered how feasible it is?
Emeritus Professor Andrew Fraknoi has produced a very clever and interesting “selective list of some short stories and novels that use reasonably accurate science and can be used for teaching or reinforcing astronomy or physics concepts.”
The bibliographic list is broken down into 44 topics, such as: Anti-matter, Asteroids, Black Holes, Life Elsewhere, Mars, Thermodynamics, Time… And there’s also a list of useful websites.
When I emailed him to ask if I could create this post, he welcomed me to ‘share it with anyone in my orbit’, which made me smile.
