Science fiction fans and technology buffs will treasure this guide to the sci-fi ideas that have influenced and inspired scientific advances in the real world. Many of the most fascinating ideas in science originated not in the laboratory but in the minds of such science fiction writers as Arthur C. Clarke and Ray Bradbury. The former's 1945 article on communications satellites was the original idea behind modern satellites; the latter's Martian Chronicles has been attributed as the main inspiration behind NASA's many missions to Mars. From bionics to black holes and warp factors to worm holes, this is the quintessential guide to the many links between science fiction and science reality.
