If you don't care about science enough to be interested in it on its own, you shouldn't try to write hard science fiction. You can write like Ray Bradbury and Harlan Ellison as much as you want.
I enjoyed reading all the classic authors like Isaac Asimov and Bradbury.
I read a bit of Ray Bradbury when I was a younger man.
I don't read a lot of fiction anymore... like, none.
I don't go around thinking I'm Ray Bradbury all the time.
