Is there any reason to trust the scientific imagination?

Doing real that exists in fantasies

A striking example of the implementation of the human imagination is a laser. The power of a narrow beam of light has long been intuitively realized by people and was immortalized in the novels “The War of the Worlds” by H.G. Welles and “The Hyperboloid of Engineer Garin” by Alexei Tolstoy written in 1897 and 1927 respectively. In the second half of the last century, thanks to the work of Basov, Prokhorov and other physicists, a powerful beams were man-made, first in the range of radio frequencies, and then of visible light. Today, lasers are without exaggeration widely applied to medical, military and many other purposes. Moreover, the modern microelectronics would be completely different without miniature lasers. Thus, the scientific imagination has come in the everyday reality much deeper than they could even imagine.
