Science, not fiction!

Talking about science fiction, we think of a speculative fiction genre of imaginative concepts like super advanced science and technology. From space flight and time travel to extraterrestrial life. We, humans, love stories, but also we sometimes tend to believe something just because we want or like to believe it.

At TEDxDonauinsel we also take you on a journey of stories but will listen to ideas and projects on how science and technology can and do help to shape our world to a better one. Now, not later. We, not somebody. Science, not fiction.

"The science of today is the technology of tomorrow."
