Science Fiction as Science Fact: It’s Okay to be SmartFebruary 20th, 2014
What technologies predicted in science fiction are available now or will be soon? Joe Hanson of It’s Okay to be Smart takes a look at the predictions of visionary authors like Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke and the relationship between science fiction and science. Some of the predictions are astounding in their accuracy. We wonder what people thought of them at the time they were made and what sorts of predictions are found in science fiction writing today that we may imagine are preposterous now and will be pedestrian in the future.
