Best Answer

Entertainment and escapism. Science Fiction, or speculative fiction, is a genre of writing that uses known scientific facts and postulates future worlds and technology. The purpose of such fiction is to explore possibilities and dream up new ideas. If there were no science, there would be no science fiction, so the two go hand-in-hand. Many people are exposed to the world of scientific imagination for the first time by reading or watching science fiction!
