Hard Science Fiction
Hard science fiction is a category of science fiction characterized by an emphasis on scientific or technical detail, or on scientific accuracy, or on both. It is characterized by rigorous attention to accurate detail in the natural sciences, especially physics, astrophysics, and chemistry, or on accurately depicting worlds that more advanced technology may make possible. Hard science fiction is driven more by ideas than characterization. Plausible science and technology are central to the plot.
“ How long does it take for two armies to destroy each other when one has an abundance of bodies and the other an abundance of bullets? ”
“ Here was the same sense of awe and mystery, and the sadness of the irrevocably vanished past. Yet the scale here was so much greater, both in time and in space, that the mind was unable to do it justice; after a while, it ceased to respond. Norton wondered if, sooner of later, he would take even Rama for granted. ”

[close] This discussion group is related to the new SIMPOC series on Amazon. This series is about how one 'thinking computer' helps to save the remainder of humanity after 99.9997% of the human population is wiped out by a suspicious virus. The corporation also created another 'thinking computer' that has a different agenda.
