Part of the Science and Fiction book series (SCIFICT)


There is, perhaps, no scientific endeavor that is more intertwined with Hollywood than space travel, where there is a clear feedback loop in play: since the early twentieth century, scientists, engineers, and innovators have been motivated to make the things they have read about in their science fiction a reality, while creators of science fiction literature and cinema have latched upon new rocket and space technology, sometimes projecting its evolution into the distant future, to take characters on fantastic voyages to distant shores.
