A lot of the allure of science fiction storytelling lies in the excitement of its outlandish worlds and imaginative circumstances. But there’s also a part where audiences can’t help but wonder: could this really happen? Between mass zombie outbreaks to intricate time travel to adventures through space, writers need to know where to pull from scientific fact, and where to bend the truth. Join this discussion on balancing fiction with fact and what’s required for viewers to truly suspend their disbelief so that the appearance of truth is always at arm’s reach. After all, the science fiction of today could very well be the science fact of tomorrow.
