Get your test tubes, beakers, and radioactive chemicals ready, because this week we’re talking about ‘30s and ‘50s science-fiction! Einstein had only just published his theory of relativity, the atom was in the process of being split, and outer space had yet to be explored. Science was scary then, for it was unknown what dangers we’d uncover. Even looking back now, the question remains: Did we make a mistake? Should we continue to ...
