They weren't so much predictions as opposed to foundations for scientists to work with. It`s the same with Jules Verne. Scientists read things like this and begin thinking about how they can make it happen. While I`m not diminishing his contribution in any way, because he was a visionary, he just was not a prognosticator.

I cannot stress how much "All Summer in a Day" means to me. What a great loss. Yes, yes, go and read something that he wrote!! Anything!

Yup! I knew he was a good "technical" writer but had forgotten how imaginative he also was.

RIP! Now, everyone go Read A Book!

Mobile phones are not wrist radios. Total fail.

(I kid, I kid. This is very cool.)
