One of my favorite topics is science fiction. Planet-hopping marauders venturing across galaxies far and wide, monsters lurking in the shadows, aliens beaming up campers and ruining vacation plans . . . Everything sci-fi thrills the hell out of me.
Still, some sci-fi is a little out there (not that there’s anything wrong with that). While I love a far-out sci-fi yarn as much as the next guy, what really gets my gears turning is a healthy dose of science fiction that’s based on a little science fact.
That’s why I’ve decided to devote each Friday to sharing a link with my readers that covers some incredible breakthroughs in science, medicine, technology, and a whole lot more.
We’ll start with the topics that heavily influenced my sci-fi thriller, The R.E.M. Effect, and go from there.
So if you’ve got a few minutes to kill this Friday, check out the link below. This week I’d like to share an article from 2013 covering the real-life advancement of antisense technology.
While this tech takes an ominous turn in The R.E.M. Effect, the advancement of antisense is promising for the future of healthcare.
