_Space-opera_, presumably < _horse-opera_, is well-known. But, what
about "science-fiction opera"? Per W:pedia, yes, but only in the
literal sense of "an opera based on a/with a science-fiction-y theme."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"––a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.

Once we recognize that we do not err out of laziness, stupidity,
or evil intent, we can uncumber ourselves of the impossible burden of
trying to be permanently right. We can take seriously the proposition
that we could be in error, without necessarily deeming ourselves
idiotic or unworthy.
