National Geographic has two great articles on H. G. Wells who is celebrating his birthday today. If H.G. Wells were alive today, he would be 143 years ago.
According to one of the articles, “Wells, often called the father of science fiction, produced an explosive array of ideas and inventions that are now staples of the genre and, in some case, everyday items—including time travel, lasers, invisibility, interplanetary war, wireless communications, and answering machines.”
