Novelists and NASA


The publisher Tor/Forge and NASA will collaborate on the creation of “science-based science fiction.” The budding relationship will allow writers to consult scientists about the facts behind their stories.

“GSFC’s Innovative Partnerships Program (IPP) Office will host a select group of Tor/Forge authors — some of whom already write science based fiction — to learn more about science and space exploration. Authors will visit GSFC for a two day workshop in November consisting of presentations, facility tours and one-on-one sessions with SMEs. NASA contributions to the project will also provide access to their data, facilities, and educational design and evaluation experts.”
