If you recall the time when “science” is consecrated as a science, ie the work of Galileo, and rethink its objective meaning, we realize that all this was not exactly science, say it was a kind of “Science Fiction I,” considering that I go back several thousand years into the past where people had no other to speculate using your reason, no experimental verification or justification. This reasoning has evolved to the “Kaizen”, forming different periods in thinking that marked the way to pure science. Then this thought rational to diminish the objectivity, the strict experimental verification. What was once a futuristic trends imagination had become a mere imagination everyday imagination had expired, in general terms. But this beautiful task (imagination and scientific speculation) was not weightless, but fell in the field of literature, through the radio and from there to the movies … the whole process. Just take a look at “The Rings of Saturn” in which Asimov speaks of Salto, a leap into hyperspace, where a differential of time “to travel” thousands of millions of light years in your galactic spacecraft.
This task, dear reader, you may have noticed that we cosmological shows a vague definition: wormholes. The story mentions neutralizers to counteract gravity and gravitational fields strong proton micro-reactors to accelerate the spacecraft. What is surprising is that the story was published a year before the Ye-1 (first spacecraft to leave the land) would be directed into space. And now comes the question what would they think of people who lived in ancient times to meet with current technology and society today? Well, imagine that I’m going with my time machine is not “so far”, say that I look to Newton, and I will bring forth. The truth, and yes I honest, I have the whitest idea of what would happen on his mind.
