Do Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke, Jules Verne, Philip K. Dick, Hugo Gernsback, Robert Heinlein, or Isaac Asimov hold a candle to H.G. Wells when it comes to correctly predicting the future of science via science fiction?

Check out these other great H.G. Wells-inspired videos from our PBS friends:

PBS Idea Channel: "What Is Fiction?"
