Art and science

Rene Bellwied over at the US LHC blog has some thoughts about art and science. I found this comment interesting:

Now sci-fi novels or movies might be good examples, but they are all too obvious, because the same geeks (myself included) that actually conduct the experiments will also read these books or watch these movies with great pleasure.

And also, as stated in the same post, some of the geeks conducting the experiments will actually write the books (or occasionally give advice to movie-makers, who will then anyway make a movie with very little connection to any real knowledge about how the world works).
