Science is the foundation for science fiction, but how much has fiction influenced science? How does literary and popular culture use the foundation of scientific study as a leaping-off point, and when does science fact become science fiction? Join scientist Jim Al-Khalili, action-thriller author Scott Baker and future-fiction author David M. Henley as they explore the interplay between imagination and possibility, faux-science and science education, and when and how to break the laws of physics. Dr Karl Kruszelnicki facilitating.
