Science fiction is a subject that will never grow old. One might argue that for thousands of years science fiction has been the product of many creative imaginations. The Epic of Gilgamesh, the Mahabharata, Homer's Odyssey, and many other ancient stories contain similar themes and elements to stories written today. Elements such as romance, drama, action, and adventure have always appealed to humankind. Every epic story has villains and heroes, daring rescues, battles, and romance.
Why is that the case? Why are the best movies made always about a hero falling in love with a beautiful woman and fighting in a climatic battle for a noble cause? There is something within each of us that finds these stories captivating. Regardless of culture or creed, we all enjoy movies or novels about heroism, betrayal, sacrifice, and victory. Why is this?
