The Physics of Star Trek , Krauss, Lawrence M.
5 The Physics of Star Trek  Krauss, Lawrence M.
0060977108 / 9780060977108 Good.  
Paperback. Softcover 1996 HarperPerennial. Like new but has 2 library sale INKSTAMPS on 1st page. No other marks; no creases. 188pp, Index. Language: English. 'Even those who have never watched an episode of Star Trek will be entertained and enlightened by theoretical physicist Krauss's adventurous investigation of interstellar flight, time travel, teleportation of objects and the possibility of extraterrestrial life. Case Western Reserve professor Krauss maintains that Star Trek's writers were sometimes far ahead of scientists--and famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking's foreword, endorsing the possibilities of faster-than-light travel and journeying back in time, supports that notion. On the other hand, Krauss also argues that the show is riddled with bloopers and huge improbabilities, as when the Voyager's crew escapes from a black hole's interior. This informal manual for Trekkers offers a porthole on the wonders of the universe as it ponders the potential existence of aliens, wormholes that allow astronauts to tunnel through space, other dimensions and myriad baby universes.'--Publishers Weekly.
