Are you a Sci-fi fan? Would aliens attack our planet? Would there be an apocalypse? Or when the world would come to an end?

We all dream. It is a human tendency to imagine ourselves in alien environments and wander randomly about the future of the human race. Would aliens attack our planet? Would there be an apocalypse? Or when the world would come to an end?

This curiosity and curious nature of the human brain embarked on creating Science Fiction.

It is commonly regarded as Sci-Fi. It is a type of fiction primarily dealing with the consequences of real or imaginary science on individuals and society. Hugo Gernsback, an American publisher, popularised this term around the 1920s. Sundry award-winning sci-fi movies akin to ‘Inception,’ ‘Interstellar’ etc., directed by British-American director Christopher Nolan has been remarked as the best in the history of cinema. So, all the above-stated statements testify to why this genre rules the roost.
