I’m listening to this episode at the moment and one comment got me thinking of a book I’ve read about a year ago, Physic od the Impossible by Michio Kaku. It would make an excellent option for your next reading assignment episode even though it’s not fiction. It would also help with understanding what’s plausible versus what’s impossible (and what may not be fiction anymore) when it comes to sci-fi science like say… lightsabers. Seriously, this book is amazing and easily understood for a book on physics in the sci-fi realm.
If you don’t want to give it a read there was a TV series based on the book as well.
I thought I would just toss that out there for those interested.
