Prophets of Science Fiction
Iconic director Ridley Scott steps in front of the camera to explore the relationship between the work of sci-fi visionaries and the constantly evolving worlds of science and technology. Aided by movie clips and cutting-edge animation, Scott and a team of cinematic and scientific experts, including director Paul Verhoeven and theoretical physicist Dr. Michio Kaku, dissect the genius of sci-fi titans Mary Shelley, George Lucas, Isaac Asimov, Jules Verne, Philip K. Dick, Arthur C. Clarke, H.G. Wells and Robert Heinlein. The dreams of these storytellers often became the inspiration for researchers seeking mankind's next transformative discovery, turning science fiction into science fact.
