    For the first journal post we were asked to define science fiction in our own words. I personally know that fiction is literature that would be considered "made up" or not true, building upon that understanding I would say that science fiction would be literature or writing about scientific phenomenon that is made up or false. Science fiction usually consist of things that would seemingly never happen but I feel as if authors try to evoke a feeling of the what-if with their audience. Science fiction usually consist of zombie apocalypses, the end of the world and beyond, extra terrestrial encounters, and science gone bad in general. Even though in my opinion science fiction consist mostly of pseudo science I do feel that fictional stories about actual or true scientific occurrences could be considered science fiction as well. Some of the things I think of when I think science fiction are The Day After Tomorrow , I Robot, and The Walking Dead.
