20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, a novel by Jules Verne, which was an early example of Science fiction.[1]

Science fiction was a genre of literature and films that contained elements normally thought of as impossible in a real world setting. It was similar to Fantasy, which was also a similar genre, but unlike fantasy, it usually did't involve magic.

Aliens, robots, time travel, Space travel beyond the speed of light, hovercars, flying cars and other things not typically heard of in the real world at the time were normal parts of science fiction settings. Some sci-fi dealt with dystopian and post-apocalyptic settings, such as stories set after a nuclear war. Many science fiction stories were set in the future, so as to make them more believable.
