THE SKEPTICS' GUIDE TO THE FUTURE What Yesterday's Science and Science Fiction Tell Us About the World of Tomorrow

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Steven Novella

Contemporary Culture • 13.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

The voice behind the long-running podcast "The Skeptics' Guide" to the Universe" is back with this fascinating look at the future of science and technology. Dr. Novella is thoroughly comfortable with the subject matter and technical language, and his welcoming New England-tinged voice is inviting for the nonscientist. With humility and just the right amount of detail, he examines technology we know from science fiction and explains which is already being developed (quantum computing, energy from nuclear fusion) and which will probably remain fantasy (time travel, crewed space missions to the stars). Listeners are treated to a bonus at the end of the production when he is joined by his brothers and coauthors, Bob and Jay, in an entertaining roundtable. D.B.
