How Science Changed Sci-Fi About Mars

Without science fiction, you might not be reading this. You also might not be doing your holiday shopping on Amazon while streaming a John Legend’s new Christmas Album on Spotify and looking for a “cuffing season” buddy on Hinge. In short, if not for sci-fi, you might not be taking part in any of the modern wonders the Internet has bestowed upon us.

This is because Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, may never have conceived of the idea if not for Arthur C. Clark’s “Dial F For Frankenstein,” a short science fiction story that first appeared in Playboy and helped inspired the young inventor. It’s just one example of the symbiotic relationship science and science fiction have had throughout modern history.

VICE News recently spoke with noted science fiction authors and scholars, including The Martian author Andy Weir and The Expanse co-authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Frank, for a series exploring the often inspiring, occasionally terrifying, and always thought-provoking ways science and sci-fi have overlapped and shape the world around us.
