Are you annoyed by faster-than-light travel and sound in space? Check out Diamonds in the Sky, a free anthology of astronomically-correct science fiction stories.
Diamonds in the Sky is a collection of astronomy-based science fiction stories edited by Mike Brotherton and funded under his National Science Foundation grant AST 05-07781. The purpose of the anthology is to provide stories with ample and accurate astronomy spanning a range of topics covered in introductory courses…Contributions include both original stories and reprints from some of the top science fiction writers working today.
Best Broader Impacts idea ever! I’m downloading it right now, and will report back on whether they’re actually good stories.
Now how about some ecologically plausible alien worlds? They can be both an ice planet AND a jungle planet! Or how about psychic dolphins (my personal sci-fi bugaboo) that behave just like real dolphins and ravage a space station Aliens style?
