SCIENCE FICTION BECOMING SCIENCE FACT

April 10, 2016 at 8:07 pm 2 comments

Since I write science fiction, I had to give praise to SpaceX landing their 14 story rocket on a barge, not a very large barge, in the ocean.

How many of us, advanced in age and wisdom remember rockets landing in movies or TV in an identical manner.  I do not know why but watching the missile land, the fact that the top of the rocket was perfectly flat was something I had never pictured.  It’s delivery, gone.

I just had to mention this historic event and contemplate the next science fiction turned science fact.  I might share that War of the Worlds is one of my favorite science fiction movies along with The Thing from Another World which scared the shit out of the seven or eight year old Walt.  Remember the last line of The Thing after the vegetable James Arness is fried?

“Look to the skies.”  I love that line.

    So much of what some of us grew up with as science fiction is now fact.

    I thought the SpaceX rocket landing was amazing. I can’t wait to see what other amazing fiction-like things come true!
