I came across a column about science fiction that I'd like to share. It's called "Science fiction futures unseen," published Friday (Nov. 5) by Alan Cherry on The Optimist website, www.acuoptimist.com.
The column is a humorous take on how there hasn't been any significant technological breakthroughs as foreseen by science fiction authors. It plugs in lots of references to these author's works and even mentions Gilese 581 g (the planet nicknamed Zarmina that's been in the news since September for being the first planet known to be in the so-called "Goldilocks" zone).
You can read the column by Cherry here.
Apparently, in addition to being a good writer, Cherry is a college student. According to the website, "The Optimist is a publication of the JMC Network, the student news operation of Abilene Christian University."
