Contents
Section one: A cosmic poker game : in which the physics of inertial dampers and tractor beams paves the way for time travel, warp speed, deflector shields, wormholes, and other spacetime oddities. Newton antes ; Einstein raises ; Hawking shows his hand ; Data ends the game -- Matter matter everywhere : in which the reader explores transporter beams, warp drives, dilithium crystals, matter-antimatter engines, and the holodeck. Atoms or bits ; The most bang for your buck ; Holodecks and holograms -- Section three: The invisible universe, or things that go bump in the night : in which we speak of things that may exist but are not yet seen--extraterrestrial life, multiple dimensions, and an exotic zoo of other physics possibilities and impossibilities. The search for Spock ; The menagerie of possibilities ; Impossibilities : the undiscoverable country
