Science Fiction Day

January 2, 2023

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 00:00 on day 2 of January, repeating indefinitely

January 2
First occurrence:
January 2 is the birthday of the very famous science fiction writer Isaac Asimov.
Which is why this day is world wide seen as a day to celebrate science fiction. Mainly the literature because it’s a cool game to point out when a modern movie or series is based on an old story that once only existed on paper before it entered the imagination of an eager public that would give the fantasy a live of it’s own.

The first step in progress is to wonder what we can
or might have in the future.

We wonder how we can solve problems that we struggle with now.
We wonder what exciting fun things we can make
to enrich our lives.

And maybe we wonder what the long term consequences are
from things that happen now or might happen soon.

If we can dream it,
then we can write science fiction about it
and share those dreams.


We now have that future
where the Vulcan salute has been done in space.

A car has actually been in space, except with a different sound track.
We carry around communicators that are computers,
camera’s and tricorders in one.

And even better, many once lethal ailments
have become manageable or even eradicated.

May our future be inspired even more by creative dreams.
And may we live long and prosper!
