Science and Science Fiction

September 9, 2014 in Interview, Responses

A lot of us who do science non-fiction work are inspired by science fiction. I grew up watching the original Star Trek, in the 1960s, and that vision of people working together towards a common goal and achieving something bigger than themselves resonates with me. The science fiction stories that inspire me focus on the best we can do as a species, instead of focusing on our failures.
