Many happy returns to the living on our list.
Prediction: February, 2002: Ninety thousand people now live on Mars.
Predictor: Ray Bradbury in The Martian Chronicles, published in 1950
Reality: This is one of the really short chapters, only two paragraphs long. As much grief as I give Bradbury, if you are of the opinion that writing is about sentences, you really should give The Martian Chronicles a read. He worked very hard at his craft and it shows.
Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!
An exact date from 2015 is going to preempt our regular schedule of predictions for most of this next week.
And, yes, there are flying cars.
Join us then... IN THE FUTURE!
