PBS Digital Studios created this short but brilliant breakdown of the evolution of science fiction. Begining with the stories, tales, and myths from all around the world that first modeled speculative questions about our world. But the science fiction we know today really took off in the ‘Golden Age of Science Fiction’, that began in the 1930s, and then the following ‘New Wave Science Fiction’, with authors such as Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Robert A. Heinlein, Arthur C. Clarke, Philip K. Dick and many others.
