Abstract:Science and science fiction as well as the ideas that are used by them are interconnected, yet, while science tries to dismiss or confirm certain ideas, science fiction uses these same ideas as substance for their stories. With the advances in science, it is possible to that some ideas move from the realm of science fiction and become science fact. In the trilogy A Time Odyssey, co-authored by Stephen Baxter and Arthur C. Clarke, we can also find ideas and assumptions that are a part of the realm of science fiction as well as science. A comparison was made between what was written in A Time Odyssey and the view of contemporary science, concerning the ideas and assumptions about the existence of alien life, time travel, and parallel worlds. The comparison showed that the mentioned ideas are a part of science fiction as well as the scientific world, because science is putting a lot of effort in devising mathematical models and theories to dismiss or confirm the ideas that life could exists outside planet Earth, that time travel could be possible, and that parallel worlds could exist, but yet need to be proven.

Title:ZNANOST ZA IDEJAMI V TRILOGIJI STEPHENA BAXTERJA IN ARTHURJA C. CLARKA A TIME ODYSSEY
Abstract:Znanost in znanstvena fantastika sta zelo povezani in tudi ideje ter predpostavke, ki jih uporabljata, so v večini podobne, le da znanost hoče določene ideje in predpostavke ovreči ali dokazati, medtem kot znanstvena fantastika uporablja enake ideje za ustvarjanje zgodb. Z napredkom v znanosti se dogaja, da ideje in predpostavke preidejo iz znanstvene fantastike v znanost. V trilogiji A Time Odyssey, katere avtorja sta Stephen Baxter in Arthur C. Clarke, tudi najdemo ideje in domneve, ki so del znanstvene fantastike, in tudi znanosti. Narejena je bila primerjava glede na to, kako so bile ideje o bitjih iz vesolja, potovanju skozi čas in paralelnih svetovih predstavljene v trilogiji A Time Odyssey in kakšno mnenje imajo znanstveniki našega časa glede teh idej. Primerjava je pokazala, da so omenjene ideje tako del znanstvene fantastike kot tudi znanosti, saj tudi znanost preučuje te ideje in ustvarja matematične modele ter teorije, kjer so ideje, kot so obstoj življenja izven planeta Zemlja, potovanje skozi čas in paralelni svetovi, možne, vendar nedokazane.
Keywords:znanstvena fantastika, potovanje skozi čas, nezemljani, dimenzije, znanost, A Time Odyssey, napredek, tehnologija
