Talking dolphins . . . Underwater cities . . . Two-hundred-year life spans . . . Welcome to the present
People have always imagined what life would be like in the future. Most of the time they've been wrong. Often they were really, really wrong. "Your Flying Car Awaits" looks at the most outrageous predictions from twentieth-century scientists, novelists, and social commentators, detailing the technologies and philosophies that led some great (and not so great) minds to think the ridiculous was achievable. Includes phenomenally inaccurate predictions such as: Space tourism will be ubiquitous by the year 2000 Nuclear explosives will be used for commercial demolition Engineered and man-made oceans will cover the planet Weather will be as predictable and controllable as a train schedule
An eye-opening, fascinating, and endlessly entertaining collection of truly boneheaded scientific predictions from the past hundred years, "Your Flying Car Awaits" shines an illuminating light on the people of the previous century by examining the ridiculous theories they envisioned about this one.
