Creepily Accurate Predictions Made In The Past That Came True
We live in a highly technological world, where nobody knows what astonishing scientific breakthrough or advancement in technology is coming up. That doesn’t stop people from making assumptions and predictions of the future.
In the advanced world we live in, it doesn’t take a genius to predict things because most of what we can think of is already either in the works or has even been partially introduced. That’s why these predictions made by people of the past seem amazing.
We were shown a glimpse of the future either through the minds of renowned scientists, or just the imagination of movie and TV show creators. In a time when they had no information other than their vision and creative thinking, they made assumptions about the future that turned out to be true!
Here are 8 creepily accurate predictions made in the past that came true.
1. Moon Landing
In 1865, author Jules Verne published a novel called “From Earth to the Moon”, in which two men are rocketed to the moon using a cannon. The site of the launch was even supposedly set in Florida, the current location of the Kennedy Space Center.
This prediction became a reality more than a century later when Neil Armstrong stepped onto the moon and declared it “one small step for man, one giant step for mankind.”
Nikola Tesla is known to be one of the smartest people to live ever, so it shouldn’t really come as a surprise to anyone that it was he who made the prediction about of modern technology’s biggest advancements.
He told New York Times, “It will soon be possible to transmit wireless messages all over the world so simply that any individual can carry and operate his own apparatus.”
Keeping in mind that this was 90 years before the invention of Wi-Fi, and 60 years before the cell phone came to be, that’s pretty incredible!
