The Prophets Of Science Fiction

SF Signal: The Prophets Of Science Fiction

The Prophets Of Science Fiction airs on The Discovery Science Channel this week (multiple airings beginning August 6) and features the predictions of science fiction writers like Jules Verne and H.G. Wells. The Production company, Veriscope pictures, describes it thusly:
Jules Verne and H.G. Wells predicted how we would reach the moon, the future of the submarine, and the invention of the atom bomb. How did these prophets of science fiction see the future with such uncanny accuracy?
And this is not being developed by the Sci-Fi Channel because...? Oh, right. No monsters and no wrestlers.
