Well Scifi happens ... because of (or in spite of)
the minds of those who have open minds.

Arthur C Clarke envisioned = satellite = before any satellite was invented or launched.
Cell phones (flip) were based on Star Trek communicators.
Holograms, cryogenics, space stations. bionic limbs...etc...

All science fiction is fiction, until it becomes science fact.

OK, cryogenics needs a bit more work 🤷 :)

Well that makes me feel a little better :)

Back in the day I knew the main Hugo's and Nebula winners (and runner ups), but have been lax for quite some time.
And there was a John Campbell award as well...

Now days, I only recall the parody from the movie Paul, which won a "Nebulon" award :D
