301 - Is Science Fiction Science?
Science fiction is really a look at human history, society, and even human nature.

The authors describe the way in which science fiction can inspire scientific research and at the same time serve as a warning against our potential misuse of the awesome power of science (citing the novels Soylent Green and On the Beach). They also good-naturedly point out its limitations – e.g., no science fiction author predicted the personal computer – and wonder why its appeal is not as strong in some countries as in others.
