    1 thought on “The Real Science Behind the X Files: Microbes, Meteorites, and Mutants

    1. Having recently watched all 202 episodes of the original run of The X-Files (in preparation for the season 10 revival), I found this book to be a fun and engaging exploration of the science (and science-fiction) behind The X-Files. I appreciate that Dr. Anne Simon not only explores the correct applications of science in the show, but also critiques and corrects the use of artistic license to circumvent scientific reality. Ultimately, I find it very satisfying as a scientist to read about the car [...]

    2. Chris Carter, creator of the X-Files, hired Dr. Anne Simon as the show's science advisor. The Real Science Behind the X-Files: Microbes, Meteorites, and Mutants is a result of Anne Simon's work on the show. As she writes, "The goal of this book is to explain to nonscientists the real science behind The X-Files. To use the show as a springboard to examine the many science issues that are blended into plots - hot topics like cloning, aging, genetic engineering, and life on other planets (pg. 22)." [...]

    3. As a massive x files fan and sucker for all thing science i enjoyed this book. There were times where it waffled on or got off topic but it always returned to the point. As well as the above I found that the Author sometimes scoffed at or made fun of some of the ideas Chris Carter fallowed through with as if not happy by the fact that the x files IS fiction. Of course there are going to be something factually or scientifically incorrect in the X files, its based on Ideas, myths, legends, wives t [...]

    4. I love anything weird and unnatural. I am also a faithful X-Files fan so when I found this at Goodwill I knew it was for me. The author, using examples and plots found in the television show, explores the science behind it all. This book is fascinating and full of the impossible. What seems mysterious and bizarre is just science.

    5. Well written science-y book for non-science people like me. Very interesting, often amusing and neatly tied to specific X-files episodes. And I now know that star fish eat by extruding their stomachs put through their mouths and a surprising number of species reproduce by asexually by cloning themselves. If only I'd been taught biology by this author at school!

    6. Well written book explaining science to non science people. For me, BS, MS, and doctorate in science fields it was an enjoyable read but a little to rudimentary . I think for non science people who enjoy scifi it is a great book

    7. I picked this book up for fun because I'm watching the series right now. It was actually surprisingly interesting. It has many scientific facts about interesting anomalies and discoveries that the show uses for inspiration.

    8. I watched the x-files back in the 1990's (loved it), so I really enjoyed this book which touches on actual episodes. If you enjoy science-based or supernatural (but perhaps feasible) reads, check this one out!

    9. I'm surprised this doesn't seem to be a shared book. A scientific analysis of some of the concepts raised in X Files episodes. Fascinating and illuminating.

    10. This is a great book - very interesting. The author helped Chris Charter write some of the plots of the series.
