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.)

This is just about the very worst way to make a graphical representation of this information. Just have the items side by side with the year predicted and developed under them.
