3 Hard Science Fiction Ideas

Excellent for writers like myself. I’ve used fusion in my first book and the weapons described here but not the coolers!

Nicholas C. Rossis

Many of my readers enjoy science fiction as much as I do. Jacob Baumgardner recently shared an answer about which emerging technologies may have the greatest impact in the near future. He identified three: fusion power, rail/coilguns, and pre-coolers.
