  Science Fiction - MSN Encarta
Writers and readers generally agree that a work of science fiction should not violate what is known to science, even as it speculates widely and often wildly in areas outside the known.
Common subjects for science fiction include the future, near and far, especially future societies better or worse than our own; travel through space or time; life on other planets; crises created by technology, or by alien creatures and environments; and the creation or destruction of worlds.
Science fiction would not exist in its present form without the social changes that took place at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the mid-18th century.

Because of these considerations, I think that we need to carefully review present science education at different levels and to improve it in order to meet the expected rapid progress of science in the 21st century.
Science journalists play an important role, but scientists should also make efforts to enlighten the general public with accurate reports on scientific progress explained in plain language.

I've been an off-and-on subscriber to the richest source, Science, but I am currently off it simply because I could not keep up with the weekly deluge of diamond-dense information it dumped on me. Scientific American is drastically uneven, and recently too preachy, so although I subscribe, it is not essential.
Over the years, the only periodical that has remained a constant source of readable science news, with no dumbing down, and much uplifting of ideas, as well as providing a great sense of important frontiers, is New Scientist.

Scottish scientists have genetically engineered hens that can not only produce useful drugs in their eggs but also reliably pass on this characteristic to new generations of chickens.
The newly engineered chickens "could pave the way to something very interesting," says animal sciences professor François Pothier of Laval University in Quebec City, who has engineered pigs to produce useful proteins in their semen.
Pothier points out that before chickens roost in pharmaceutical factories, the researchers in Scotland have many hurdles to overcome, such as increasing the small amounts of the two drugs present in the hens' egg whites.

Science on television is an essential part of democracy's diet of information, especially now that humanity is involved in a wholesale experiment with the environment in ways undreamed of only a few years ago.
It is also some time since this series championed the cause of Britain's scientists, who are currently experiencing a disastrous squeeze on money and equipment, and could therefore benefit substantially from a public ally.
The science output of British television is a matter of public concern, since it is the mass public's window on the world of science and engtneerlng.
