I don’t think it’s a particularly prescient movie, but one of the earlies

亚博app怎么下载「国际领导品牌」后花园The one thing that always strikes me about science fiction in those days

is that they got the space flight part wrong. For example, even in 2001: A Space Odyssey, the

y absolutely overestimated space flight capability and yet they completely underestimated computing power, which is ve亚博app怎么下载「国际领导品牌」后花园女神会所
