As technology has advanced, so has science fiction, painting more and more realistic portraits of what life in space could look like. Science and Sci-Fi are slowly coming together forming a new reality where the craziest dreams have started to become true. What impact does the life as an interplanetary species have on politics, economy, culture and architecture?
