Product Details


“The book covers everything, with a truly encyclopaedic ability to fire example after example from science fiction to illustrate the science being discussed…. Because this book is all about the science of science fiction, there are examples that blur the line between the two and really capture the imagination…. If you are looking for a primer on a wide range of sciences and a wide range of science fiction, then Blockbuster Science is your hitchhiker’s guide.

“David Siegel Bernstein’s charming and engaging book is a whirlwind tour of the mind-bending ideas and discoveries at the heart of modern science. Reality is often stranger than fiction; Blockbuster Science is a welcoming guide to anyone who wants to explore the ever-expanding boundaries between proven science and inspired speculation.”
—Andre Bormanis, television writer and producer, and science consultant for the Star Trek television and film franchise

“It’s always scarier if it’s possible, and Blockbuster Science takes the ‘fiction’ out of science fiction. Brilliant, weird, and unnerving. Highly recommended!”
—Jonathan Maberry, New York Times–bestselling author of Patient Zero and Mars One
