Summary

Explores how advance in science and technology could theoretically allow scientists to develop travel at the speed of light.

Do you lose yourself in daydreams about invisibility cloaks, tractor beams and replicators? Do you wish that you could have been born a few hundred years later, when all of these things are a reality?

This series explores the real-life science behind some of our favourite science fiction gadgets and shows how a future filled with space shuttles, solar sails and bionic limbs might be closer than you think!
