By way of introduction, I’m posting this photo taken by Linda Burton at the Seattle museum of science fiction. Gort was the robot from a movie called The Day the Earth Stood Still. Despite the uncanny resemblance, I’m the handsome one on your right. The museum is extremely cool, and if you don’t see it next time you’re in Seattle, Gort will know where to find you.
Why do historians like science fiction? It has something to do with what history is and what it ought to be.
