9780060977573: Beyond Star Trek: From Alien Invasions to the End of Time

In the bestselling "The Physics of Star Trek, " the renowned theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss took readers on an entertaining and eye-opening tour of the "Star Trek" universe to see how it stacked up against the real universe. Now, responding to requests for more as well as to a number of recent exciting discoveries in physics and astronomy, Krauss takes a provocative look at how the laws of physics relate to notions from our popular culture -- not only "Star Trek, " but other films, shows, and popular lore -- from "Independence Day" to "Star Wars" to "The X-Files."

What's the difference between a flying saucer and a flying pretzel?

Why didn't the aliens in "Independence Day" have to bother invading Earth to destroy it?

What's new with warp drives?

What's the most likely scenario for doomsday?

Are ESP and telekinesis impossible?

What do clairvoyance and time travel have in common?

How might quantum mechanics ultimately affect the fate of life in the universe?
