Yup, you better believe it; Scientists have actually affirmed that some of the stuff that you see on Doctor Who is actually real. Ha! And all the time you thought the writers were just goofing around!
The first episode was broadcasted on 23rd November 1963, which reached out to the British audience with the help of radio waves. Now, these waves would have reached far and out into the universe, probably some 50 light years away from our planet Earth. And who knows, an alien might’ve just happened to pick up these waves! And who further knows, he might’ve analysed our scientific knowledge! Am I sounding too much out of the world? Well, pardon me and let’s get down to the point; It’s a known fact that science fiction is based on Science and what do you know? Some of the stuff shown by writers in the series has been stated as a hard-core fact. Wow! Take a look at them;
8. The So-Very Super Duper Sonic Screwdriver
You’ve seen this device manipulating electronics, operating computer systems and even light candles with the help of sound waves. Today, with the aid of the internet, you can purchase these sonic screwdriver shaped TV remote controls. However, would you believe if I told you that researchers at the University of Dundee are trying to create the real thing? The device that they’re creating uses an ultrasonic beam to manipulate objects. As of now, it is capable of lifting and rotating objects only. With the passage of time, you can expect this model to be perfected and to be used to perform non-invasive surgery. Whether it will work or not on wood remains to be seen.
7. It’s A Cracked World We’re Living In
If you thought Amy Pond was fooling around when talking about the crack that was following her around, you better beg pardon because there could actually be cracks! Apparently, these cracks are called “cosmic strings.” These little babies showed up during the creation of the universe and they’ve left their mark throughout the cosmos. More news on them is that they’re one-dimensional and are made out of pure energy. Apparently, as the universe is expanding, so are they. What’s more is that they’ve mass equal to the entire mass of the Earth in just one metre! Yikes! Does this mean that their gravitational force capable of pulling stuff right into its centre? Scientists are still working on it.
