Wallpapers and images featuring subjects based on science fiction (or sci-fi) concepts and ideas. Science Fiction is a very broad genre when we come to think of the various subject matter that can fall under its banner. To help us find out what it really means let us look at the two words that make up the Science Fiction genre individually. Firstly, Science is defined as “the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.” One simple definition of fiction is “something that is invented or untrue.” Both definitions are broad and so naturally science fiction is a broad genre. It takes ideas and concepts from science and twists them and reinvents them to create new ideas and possibilities. Because these ideas often don’t exist or are not possible in the present day, events often take place in some far flung future time and place where they actually could exist. Though set in an imaginary future, good science fiction stories use metaphor and irony to comment on problems in modern society. They often make us think deeply about controversial topics of the day such as racism, corruption or religious zealotry.
