The Universe – "Science Fiction, Science Fact"

Today on Discovery Enterprise we explore the very limits of science and the possible. Many of the technologies we take for granted today, such as space travel, transcontinental passenger aircraft, submarines and almost instantaneous global communication, once existed in the realm of speculative fiction. How many of the technologies which exist only in the realm of our best loved Sci-Fi television series will eventually become the reality of tomorrow?


The world of tomorrow is quickly becoming the futuristic world of today. While you may not be “beaming” to your next appointment, researchers are preparing for the first tests of a transporter. And while scientists have long mocked Hollywood’s visions of warp speed a new generation of physicists continue to rewrite the fundamental rules of the universe. Is there a way around the cosmic speed limit – the speed of light?
