Robert A. Heinlein’s Legacy

Posted by Rob Longenecker on July 28th, 2007

There’s been a show on the History Channel that lists the number of technologies created for “Star Trek” that actually have become available to us in 2007. Unfortunately, I can’t beam myself to vacation spots around the world yet, but science fiction has often been the birthplace of ideas that become future reality.

Robert Heinlein, the late science fiction writer, also predicted future technologies in his many novels. I ran across an article about Robert Heinlein’s life and legacy that you may enjoy reading.

 

One Response to “Robert A. Heinlein’s Legacy”

  1. Joe Allen Says:

    We just had a big goings-on here in Kansas City to celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth. He was born in Butler, Mo and lived in KC and other parts of MO for a time.

    I was very dissapointed that I was too busy to attend, but there were some high powered sci-fi notables there, and it was good to see “The Admiral” honored.
