"Treknology: The Science of Star Trek from Tricorders to Warp Drive"


The name Star Trek conjures images of faster-than-light spacecraft, holographic crew members, and phasers set to stun. Some of these incredible devices may still be far from our reach, but others have made the leap from science fiction to science fact! Ethan Siegel, author of the new book Treknology, joined us to share a few of the iconic inventions from the Star Trek television and film universe, the science behind how they work, and how close we are to achieving them in the real world today.
