The science of science fiction 3D Models


The models of this collection spot well known science fiction movies to highlight if and in which parts they get the science right (thus providing some accurate, plausible science) and to illustrate real phenomena and objects in Astrophysics. It is no mystery that many sci-fi writers are inspired by science. But the opposite may also be true: sometimes sci-fi has helped scientists to stimulate their imagination of what might be possible in science.
