I love science-fiction.
I don’t think that’s a big secret, either. What you all may not realize is that I have attempted to write it on more than one occasion. Usually, I fail miserably, for any of a number of reasons, but I still love to do the research. I figure, it may eventually get used, so it’s worth doing, right?
Well, in my searches for interesting bits of thought on many, many things science-fiction, I came across Atomic Rockets; or So You Want To Build A Rocket? Wow! What a site! This guy has collected all kinds of ideas and research into possible future spacecraft and weapons and, well, just about anything you can think of that relates to the “crunchy” parts of science-fiction! I mean, he references actual physicists and chemists and engineers who are actually trying to make the future happen on this site. But, he doesn’t lose the fun that drew most geeks like me to sci-fi.
If you’re a fan, it’s well worth a look. And, if you’re a BIG fan, make sure to check out the rest of his site, too!
