Hard Science Fiction - Stories

Primary Genre: Science Fiction
"Hard Science" Fiction. Stories whose scientific elements are reasonably detailed, well-researched and considered to be relatively plausible given current knowledge and technology.  This genre has a very, very strong aversion to anything fantasy or anything that can't be explained directly with ties to known science.  Example: Jurassic Park, The Martian
