Predicting the future (thats now our past)

What may happen in the next 100 years

It was written in 1900 as a prediction of key developments of the 20th Century. Seems to me that they didn't do too badly, at least with some of the predictions. Yes some of them were way off, but whose to say that they might not have happened if events had moved in slightly different directions?
