A pre-‘ RoboCop ’ Peter Weller effortlessly embodies the title character: physicist, rock star, the leader of the Hong Kong Cavaliers, he was a comic book hero in his own time. The first fictions about travel beyond the Earth were satires of such epic voyages by the Syrian writer Lucian of Samosata in the 2nd century A. Most science fiction will fall within a scale of intensity of Soft to Hard, much like the average science fiction fan's love life.

On the Gem Planet, if you call somebody a filthy name, they smile and thank you. © 2002 by Michael Swanwick and SCIFI. Since the days of Galileo, religion has tried to kill any kind of scientific thinking, logic reasoning, or theories. On the surface, The City and the City is a noir detective novel. Stross’s latest, Neptune’s Brood, is hard-hard science-fiction set far in the future and perhaps best illustrated with this telling quote: It is a truth universally acknowledged, that every interstellar colony in search of good fortune must be in need of a banker.

Einstein's special relativity applies to regions of space-time which are "flat'' in the sense that gravity is not significant. Nanotechnology will make it possible to create virtually any physical product using inexpensive information processes and will ultimately turn even death into a soluble problem.” A lot of this sounds like stuff you might hear in a college apartment late at night after passing around too many joints.

Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 played with information control techniques as had been tried with varying degrees of success in totalitarian regimes. I didn’t realise it at first, but Starship Troopers is a brilliant satire on American military patriotism. I love the Foundation series, and it's really fun, but the economics are crappy (agglomeration economies encourage the collapse of empires?). Markus "Notch" Persson said the game was provisionally titled 0x10c, space-themed and set in the distant future.

The advanced races are fascinated that we've outdone their technology, with an improvement of "hyperatomic" drive. Weekend is filled with images that are difficult to forget, particularly the tracking shot of a chain of wrecked cars that emerges as a portrait of contemporary capitalism. Steampunk can have imaginary inventions like those found in books by H. Although not as popular in the world of cinema as space exploration, novels involving dystopias--the opposite of utopia or perfect society--have enjoyed much popularity in science fiction literature.

And yet most lists of hard SF include authors like Frank Herbert, whose Dune series about giant worms who create a substance that allows people to "fold space" with their minds is many things — but not so much based in science.
