I’ve always been drawn to high-quality science and science fiction writing, and sometimes it hasn’t been hard to see the lines blurring between the two genres. Science is about experimentation, trial, questioning, and re-testing. But it’s also about imagination and creativity.
The technology of Star Trek and the discoveries throughout the galaxy seem to be on the far edge of that imagination. Yet, the concepts of antimatter and positrons–and the ability to harness that energy–are the subjects of researchers Kelvin Lynn and Marc Weber at WSU. The very idea grabs my imagination and makes me want to re-watch old episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
