Between 1903 and 1969, scientists and other experts made hundreds of predictions in Popular Mechanicsabout what the future would hold. Here are the very best of them, complete with the original, visually stunning retro art plus chapter introductions by astrophysics professor, science-fiction author, and former NASA advisor Gregory Benford. "Endlessly fascinating."-- Booklist. " A wonderful coffee-table book that you will also want to read page-by-page."--Joe Haldeman, Hugo and Nebula award-winning author of The Forever War. "All these fantastically fabulous futures, and I get to live in none of them--and no, having an iPod Touch does not make up for it--but at least I have this book, which almost does."--John Scalzi, bestselling author of Old Man's War
