I have removed the 'reactionless drive' part from Firefly as according to http://firefly.wikia.com/wiki/Firefly-class_transport_ship it has two engine types: Bussard ramjets on the nacelles and an "Enhanced graviton accelerator core" that powers the main "Firefly drive". The former is conventional reaction engine technology; the latter is a bit more murky but seems to suggest the same, particularly as gravity as known cannot violate conservation of linear momentum.

I deleted the second-level bullet added to the following entry:
- Robert Charles Wilson's short story "Divided by Infinity" takes the idea of quantum immortality (a legitimate — although not universally accepted — implication of quantum mechanics) and starts running with it. It is shifted toward the soft end by the otherdimensional books at Ziegler's bookshop, however.
- Nope. Actual science, if niche.
