Description

People do not typically watch science fiction movies with the intention of unraveling the scientific mysteries behind their spectacular scenes such as superheroes preposterous exploits, dizzying spaceship voyages, and apocalyptic weapons. However, some people like to explore the possibility of Hollywood s crazy ideas becoming reality. Could Superman really shape a planet to make it cubic instead of spherical? Is science able to give life to monsters such as Frankenstein? Are we in danger of being attacked by something from space? This book addresses these questions and more from a scientific point of view."show more

Review Text

Pocas personas acuden a una sala de cine con la pretensión de desentrañar los misterios científicos que se ocultan tras las espectaculares escenas de una película de ciencia ficción: las hazañas increíbles y sobrehumanas de los superhéroes, los vertiginosos viajes de naves espaciales equipadas con armas devastadoras y sistemas de defensa futuristas, máquinas del tiempo fantásticas, etc.Sin embargo, unas pocas de esas mismas personas, entre las que se encuentra el autor de este libro, deciden ir más allá y plantearse las posibilidades reales de las ideas propuestas por los guionistas de Hollywood.show more
