This beautifully illustrated pop science book which answers the enduring questions raised by science fiction, such as “ Do hoverboards really exist?” , “ How can you bring a dinosaur back to life?” and “ Can we really travel in time and space?”

Packed with stunning images, including 75 illustrations created exclusively for this book, Blueprint for a Battlestar  takes twenty-five remarkable and memorable technologies from the world of sci-fi, from Star Wars and The Matrix to Ironman and The Terminator. Each concept will be explained and dissected to reveal the real science behind it. Some are boldly obvious – such as the Death Star and exoskeletons – and some less so (think bio-ports or cloaking devices). All are fascinating and will make wonderful explorations into the science of the future as we understand it today.
