About this site:
"The Science Behind The X-Files" (a.k.a., "The FILE CABINET" or "scixf") has been running
on GeoCities since early January 1997. To my
knowledge this was the very first set of web pages to explore the actual science on which
the episodes are based. Inspired by an
by Mr. Lawrence Krauss (author of The Physics of Star Trek) of a
Science of The X-Files book, scixf was created for fans of the show and
science enthusiasts alike.
If you like this site, you may also like X-Files Ultra, a similar exploration of
this theme, at Area51/Lair/1465.
Jeanne Cavelos' book, The Science of The X-Files
is a thoroughly researched, engaging work. I'll post a review of it here when I get a chance.
The Real Science Behind The X-Files: Microbes, Meteorites, and Mutants, by
The X-Files' science advisor Dr. Anne Simon
is finally out in hardcover. It should be a good read; I'll post a review here if I get an opportunity to read it.
The X-Files is copyrighted ©1997, trademarked, and all
rights reserved by the Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation. This is simply a "fan" page, and thus all the
graphics and web design was handmade by me and not taken from the official site.
Likewise, I've worked pretty hard on this site, so any of you with a penchant for web-kleptomania
don't steal this site and post it as your own, please. Thank you.
If you'd like to use any of the graphics, just
The X-Files is a television show with a TV14 rating (last I checked). I'll try to keep this site
kid-safe, but some elements of the show do require parental discretion.
If you don't have it already, I highly suggest you download the free font
Trebuchet MS for viewing this site. It's an elegant
typeface that's very legible and clear at all sizes. And it's free!
