+ - The science fiction effect->

Submitted by
Harperdog
Harperdog writes "Laura Kahn has a lovely essay about the history of science fiction, and how science fiction can help explain concepts that are otherwise difficult for many...or perhaps, don't hold their interest. Interesting that Frankenstein is arguably the first time that science fiction appears. From Frankenstein to Jurassic Park, authors have been writing about "mad scientists" messing around with life. Science fiction can be a powerful tool to influence society's views of the life sciences — one scientists should take"
