Description

The Science of Dune provides the answers to these questions ... and many more! From the original publication of Dune in 1965 to the recent release of Sandworms of Dune, the Dune series has entranced generations of readers with its complex plotting, fascinating characters, grand scope ... and incredible scientific predictions. Dune is perhaps the first science fiction novel to consider the sciences of ecology and anthropology while at the same time providing novel predictions in the realms of biology, quantum physics, engineering, human physiology and genetics, biochemistry, the nature of time, and the human mind. Now, in The Science of Dune, leading scientists and science writers explore every aspect of the amazing science Herbert invokes in the Dune series. From the feasibility of Tleilaxu eyes to human breeding programs, from the mechanics of prophecy to building your own stillsuit, from desert terraforming to the best way to revive a ghola, it's all here. Plus a primer on pain through nerve induction and a handy dandy guide to finding Caladan, Arrakis, and Giedi Prime on your next interstellar trip.
