Today I read a fun article by Donna Dickens titled 27 Science Fictions That Became Science Facts In 2012.
It’s the whole gist of sci fi enthusiasm, to wonder what it would be like for the fictional to be factual.
Some things on this list totally surprised me, as in, I had no idea they were scientific realities.
Most things on this list naturally made me wonder what it would be like to be someone wondering what the world would be like with them–and of course realizing that I am now doing the same thing with fictional ideas, some of which will some day prove to be factual. That’s why this article also strikes my alternative history nerve.
It’s a totally fun read!
