Q&A: what are some examples of science fiction becoming science facts?

Question by anonymous: what are some examples of science fiction becoming science facts?
I have heard people are working on “smart” homes, invisibility cloaks and time traveling. These all used to be displayed as science fiction in literature/media. However, these will one day be science fact. (For example: Traveling to the moon was known as science fiction just 2 centuries ago. But now it is science fact.) PLEASE HELP! I NEED IT FOR MY EXIT PROJECT! I will really appreciate it!

    those are probable science facts that were proven not necissarily science fiction. They knew we had the means but did not have it develpoed yet. Like any other invention or new technology, they are just ideas that are proven not fiction.

    there was this show about how the technology of star trek was interesting because we have a lot of that technology today…

    like cell phones, they’re so much like thos little flip talkies they had in the show…

    ummm, we have a death ray which can shoot down incoming missles… and we’re really close to creating laser guns… pretty cool

    ummm… we now have robots, like the robot built in japan named ASIMO… http://world.honda.com/ASIMO/

    we have created EXO SKELETONS kind of like in Matrix 3 where they jump into those mech warriors… ours are more for lifting stuff, and possibly will be used in wartime situations.. but we have them…

    let’s see.. hmmm that’s all for now I can think of… but there is a lot…

    just imagine what the future will bring…

    watch a show called “beyond tomorrow” and a lot of discovery channel… I love it!

    Star Trek (ST) Communicator = Cell Phone
    ST DNA Identification = Forensic Science
    ST Phaser = Laser
    Superman once compressed a piece of coal to make a diamond = we make diamonds in the lab
    Miniature EVERYTHING = A transistor changed the world.

    Watch for a show, or research it, with William Shatner (Capt Kirk). It is entitled “How William Shatner Changed the World” or “How ST Changed the World” something like that.

    We are even working, with a tiny bit of success, on matter teleportation ala the ST Transporter.

    Much Science Fiction is based on a futurists look at the world. They try to research the projects undergoing experimentation in laboratories and extrapolating them to a logical conclusion. We are moving away from chemical rocket power slowely but surely. Space travel for the average man is coming fast. Solar Sails have been considered for space travel.

    You might want to read the article listed below. I didn’t read it all but it seems ok to me. It might help you a lot.

    Good luck

    Brave New World by Aldous Huxley is all about genetic engineering and now modern science can do that.

    Also, in Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, the kids all train for combat on video games and the United States military does that now.

    Jules Verne’s novels made many startlingly accurate predictions about future technology.
