Summary
Scientific experts explore the ideas behind the hit TV show. Fringe Science delves into the science, science fiction, and pseudoscience of Fringe with a collection of essays on everything from alternate universes to time travel to genetically targeted toxins, as well as discussions on the show's moral philosophy and the consequences of playing God. MIT physics professor Max Tegmark illuminates the real-life possibilities of parallel universes. Stephen Cass, founding editor of Discover's Science Not Fiction blog and a senior editor with Technology Review, unravels Fringe's use of time travel. Award-winning science fiction historian Amy H. Sturgis walks us through the show's literary and television ancestors, from the 1800s on. Television Without Pity staff writer Jacob Clifton looks at the role of the scientist, and scientific redemption, through the ever-shifting role of Massive Dynamic. Garth Sundem, bestselling author of Brain Candy, explores the mysterious way that memory works, from why Walter forgets to how Olivia remembers. Paul Levinson, award-winning author of The Silk Code, shows how Fringe re-invents themes from golden-age 1950s science fiction And more, from lab cow Gene's scientific ršum ̌to why the Observers should be wearing white lab coats
