I find it fascinating that during the time when the world was closest to nuclear holocaust, they had such a rosy, bright outlook on the future. Say what you want about "The Jetsons" and the boom in science fiction, but the people of the 1950s and 1960s sure had some great ideas. Like underwater cities. And dinners that you either ate as a pill or sucked through a tube.
