Star Trek Tech.

Currently in the 21st century, the doubling of computer processing speed every 18 months, known as Moore's Law, is just one manifestation of the greater trend that all technological change occurs at an exponential rate. If we continue at with this same growth rate, we just might realize some of the amazing technology found in the 24th century such as androids, replicators, and interstellar travel.

In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Richard Marquez, Amy Nelson, and Lee Hutchison discuss the imaginative technology used on Star Trek. Science and technology are making tremendous gains in the fields of energy, neuroscience, genetics, and nanotechnology which only feeds the fire for every geek's fandom. We debate whether some of Star Trek's greatest technological fiction could actually be possible.
