Science fiction stories have common themes, such as space travel, scientific progress, catastrophic events, supernatural powers, alien invaders, robots and the dangers of machines. For example, in Douglas Adams' novel "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," the protagonist and his alien friend navigate outer space and defeat evil Vogons who plan to destroy Earth.
In the blockbuster hit "The Matrix," a human computer hacker defeats a race of machines that feed off human energy and erase human minds. Sci-fi themes often have underlying social or political messages that address human interactions on a global level. The term "robot" wasn't invented by scientists or alien life forms.
Karel Capek, a Czechoslovakian author, wrote a play in called "R. In his play, humans are threatened with extinction when robots try to take over the world. Authors and producers often strive to make robots seem as human as possible. In the novel "The Iron Man" by Ted Hughes, later made into a animated film entitled "Iron Giant," a huge, three-story metal robot survives by consuming old metal parts on a family farm turned junkyard.
Eventually, the robot sacrifices its life for a boy it befriends. Teleportation isn't just a bizarre and crazy travel method used by characters in sci-fi books and movies such as "Star Trek. Some technology experts believe teleportation could eventually lead to the production of lightning fast quantum computers. However, there's no evidence to show that scientists will ever be able to teleport human beings -- that concept is purely science fiction.
