Re: Future Anachronism-Science Fiction Gone Wrong
I believe so. Heinlein's story collection "The Past Through Tomorrow" has all sorts of predictions for the future, most of which occurred by the turn of the century. There were all sorts of cool things besides space travel and lunar colonies, like rolling roads.
The Clarke anachronism I think is closest to becoming reality is the space elevator (from "The Fountains of Paradise"). I'm pretty sure I'll see that within my lifetime, before any lunar colonies or regular intra-solar system space travel.
