A bit like opening a time capsule. As mentioned in the companion article, Isaac Asimov was no Nostradamus. https://www.thestar.com/news/world/2018/12/27/isaac-asimov-you-were-no-nostradamus.html And where is my flying car that we were promised was "just around the corner", in the 1060's, dammit!

His predictions on education and the moon are wrong for example RE: The predictions the world of 2019 of Isaac Asimov - Dan - 01-08-2019 07:03 AM (01-07-2019 12:42 PM)EugeneNine Wrote:  Doesn't appear to be all that accurate, maybe 50/50.
