SOUND IN SPACE - LASERS - GRAVITY - BIBLIOGRAPHY
Have you ever looked up into the stars and wondered if we were ever going to go there? No, not just space, but to other planets? See other starts? Live in entirely different galaxies? Some have already visualized these dreams, and others have shown us their visions.
Even though science fiction films and television shows have great action scenes or tear jerking dramas, many productions have gotten the basic laws of physics either wrong or unrealistic. Viewers have to force a little suspension of disbelief to begin with, but many aspects of physics go completely unnoticed or ignored.
