Out of this World
Sci-fi is so much a part of the pop culture landscape that it’s easy to forget how our vision of the future was formed. A new exhibition brings together some otherworldly materials from the British Library archive to show you. Best fact we’ve learned so far? Bovril‘s name came from Edward Bulwer-Lytton‘s 1871 novel The Coming Race, about beings who use Vril as an energy source. Out Of This World, British Library, NW1, 20 May–25 Sep

Strange Random Science-Fiction Quote:

Science fiction writers, I am sorry to say, really do not know anything. We can’t talk about science, because our knowledge of it is limited and unofficial, and usually our fiction is dreadful. – Philip K. Dick
