Turning Science Fiction into Fact December 1, 2009

I often find myself linking to, or Retweeting, articles on the Wired Magazine’s GeekDad Blog. They just find some of the coolest stuff out there on the web, movies, tv and popculture. This morning’s post is no exception – it’s a plug for a new show, Sci-Fi Science: Physics of the Impossible on the Science channel.

Check out this interview with the Theoretical Physicist that will help figure out how to turn science fiction into reality. He talks about things like why time travelers from the future aren’t interested in us (despite our huge egos, we aren’t actually that interesting) and if we should worry about robots taking over the world (yes, but we’ll have plenty of warning.)

As if the very concept of the show wasn’t already enough to make me tune in, GeekDad added this enticement:

They’re going to make lightsabers that actually work.

The show premieres tonight at 10pm EST, on the Science Channel. Check your local listings.
