Quote:
The second half of the sentence states that it would take a miracle for a person to get to another solar system. In other words, it’s more or less impossible. “Dementia,” “catastrophe,” and “hysteria” do not reflect this meaning. And while space travel would be an incredible “innovation,” innovation also doesn’t express the proper meaning of this sentence. “Delusion,” meaning a belief that is maintained despite being contradicted by reality, is the best fit.


+1 Kudo

Please next time provide your reasoning :)

The astrophysicist characterizes the depiction of space travel in our books and films as a mass something. She or he then states that only a miracle could allow humans to voyage to even the closest star in another solar system. Hence, clearly, the depiction of interstellar space travel in our books and films should be considered as fictional at best. Only the word delusion fits the bill
