CELEBRATING EXCELLENCE IN INTERSTELLAR WRITING
Science is the practice of What If? What if we travel the speed of light? What if there were life on other planets? What if our resources were unlimited or limited to nothing? All of the questions are on the minds of scientists. Writers get to find out the answers to those questions. In their capable hands, we get to discover the implications of our curiosity.
