Ten Science fiction books for astronomers (part 1) - Denver astronomy Albert Einstein once said “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” This quote eloquently captures the importance of science fiction not just to scientist but to the public in general. Science fiction shows us what could be and forces us to consider solutions to problems we may have written off as impossible and above all else it inspires us to study science. That being said there are certain books that inspire different types of scientist, and what follows is the first part of ten science fiction novels that inspire astronomers. 1. 2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C.
