    Abstrakt

    Some see literary Science Fiction as a possible vehicle for critical discussions about the future development and the ethical implications of science-based technologies. According to that understanding, literary Science Fiction constitutes a variety of science communication. Along related lines, popular science communication with science fiction features might be expected to serve a similar purpose. Only, it is far from obvious that it actually works that way.
