The Science of James Bond

Ever wonder if the idea of sending a spaceship into orbit that engulfs other craft and kidnaps their crews would be a feasible moneymaker? Turns out it’s not really practical, at least the way the criminal group SPECTRE tried it in the film “You Only Live Twice,” envisioned it. The idea that some of what’s seen in the Bond franchise takes some scientific liberties is hardly news. This book is interesting in that it goes into detail about exactly why certain things wouldn’t work, though. That said, this will probably be enjoyed more by fans of the superspy than by fans of sience.
