This beautifully illustrated pop science Blueprint for a Battlestar: Scientific Explanations for Sci-Fis Greatest Inventions book 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, the Blueprint for a Battlestar book 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 and others less so. All are fascinating and will make wonderful explorations into the science of the future as we understand it today.
