Science for Imagination
In school, we're taught that science is. What science tells us is what is real. Gravity makes apples fall on our heads and keeps the planet Earth spinning happily around the Sun. Science is a static fact.
In reality, science is no more static than the arts. New theories and facts regarding gravity are being discovered all the time. Science changes with these new discoveries, and newer discoveries build on those. Some things which we never considered possible - because of 'scientific fact' - are becoming possible all the time.
This blog will be used to show science that anyone would find interesting, and especially science that opens new worlds for people to explore, in reality or fiction.
Nothing is static. Least of all science.
