Remember, although Asimov was well ahead of his time and introduced many of the accepted Science fiction concepts, including being the recognised “father of robotics”, these stories were written in the 1940’s. Don’t forget the typewriters that you dictate to .. at the very least I was expecting these science fiction/science fact misnomers to be sorted out but, at the same time, this is where I was expecting the writers to embellish the old facts and figures with modern science fiction imagination.
