Fiction can cause these “imagined” ideas we read about to become a reality. Christopher J. Ferguson, a former NASA Astronaut, says for Discovery, “I think science fiction writers don’t just invent these things. A lot of it is based on science and where they see science headed someday.” The literary genre may not be seen as a place to predict the future, but it does help create ideas of what we can do next. Specifically on what can be created. With the help of actual facts and individuals’ imagination, so many things that we have only dreamed about can become a reality.

Space exploration will not be losing interest any time soon. It’s just the beginning.
