Science 1

Derling Whirvish (636322) writes "Sci-Fi used to be about bold engineering, and so was America. Popular Mechanics Resident Contrarian Glenn Harlan Reynolds says that's the spirit we need to recapture. No more depressing dystopias (we're looking at you, The Hunger Games)—give us sci-fi that inspires people to dream big."

What do you mean "used" to be about bold engineering? Just read anything by Peter F. Hamilton. His latest series (Void) were both galactic in scope and positive in outlook.
