ESA's 'Science fiction - science fact' video

I came across the below video titled "Science fiction - science fact" and wanted to share it. It talks about the impact that science fiction has on real life science. Among the authors it talks about are Arthur C. Clarke and Jules Verne.

The video is by the European Space Agency, which says that "Whether it's Star Trek's USS Enterprise, or the iconic space station from 2001: A Space Odyssey, science fiction has always provided inspiration and ideas for the scientists and engineers that design and build real spacecraft."
