Does Sci-fi Inspire Science? Or Science Inspire Sci-fi?

@40:13, “How much do you think sci-fi influences science?”

Quite a lot, actually… Even now, I think there’s something similar about them; because they’re both about imagination… it’s about letting your mind wander, distant worlds, subatomic realms… I still love science fiction.

The science fiction readers of today become the scientists of tomorrow. The scientists of today read science fiction, even now. When scientists pass, science fiction will immortalize them as much as history and theory.

I’d say science fiction and science are forever intertwined, in tandem dance.
