When I would think of Science Fiction, I always associated it with just aliens and technology. I don't really have any other thoughts on Science Fiction as it wasn't really my genre and while it is interesting for some I didn't have an interest in it. For me, I would define Science Fiction as a genre that is associated with sciences and other worldly beings. It also associates with how the future may be or how technology can be advanced.

From what I learned of Science Fiction, I would say that I was right to think how I did on the definition of Science Fiction. Science Fiction is a literary genre that is focused on science and is also focused on technology. I found out from the documentary Brave New Worlds: The Science Fiction Phenomenon, I learned that it came in 1926. The authors then were trying to show the younger audience at the time how their world can be different. I think I was also right to think that it was the focus on technology because they were thinking about how technology is advanced.

@TamiMarie: Hello! I thought of the same things when science fiction came to mind before we had to do research. I see that your thoughts have changed about what it all is and mine has too. In this article I found, it talks about how science fiction actually consist of both hard science fiction and soft science fiction. I think we were both just more exposed to the soft sf, which is more of social science.--Daisja30 (talk) 22:05, 31 August 2019 (EDT)
