(2010)
A non fiction book by

 
James Cameron's Avatar is the biggest movie of all time. Such has been its effect on audiences that some have reported begin depressed at having to leave the vividly realised setting of Pandora to return to the real world. In the Science of Avatar, bestselling science-fiction author Stephen Baxter examines James Cameron's epic. Over twelve years, the Director created richly imagined world that had its roots in real scientific discovery. From journeys into deep space to anti-gravity unobtanium, from Pandora's extraordinary flora and fauna to transferring consciousness, Baxter reveals that we are closer to world of Avatar than we know. Stephen Baxter is the master of what-if?' science fiction. In the Science of Avatar he's written a book that will appeal to fans of both science-fiction and popular science. And a book that provides a glimmer of hope to those poor film-fans bemoaning their return to the earth after time spent on Pandora.
