Science Fiction leads Reality: Kryptonite!

Just a few days back, I came across a pro­gram on Dis­cov­ery chan­nel about how famous sci­ence fic­tion authors had pre­dict­ed most of the astound­ing sci­en­tif­ic dis­cov­er­ies and achieve­ments that actu­al­ly hap­pened decades lat­er. It includ­ed H. G. Well’s fore­bod­ing of the atom­ic bomb, among oth­er things.

Today, yet anoth­er amaz­ing dis­cov­ery: a new min­er­al, with almost iden­ti­cal chem­i­cal com­po­si­tion as Kryp­tonite (a.k.a. Super­man Returns)  has been dis­cov­ered in a mine in Ser­bia! Read BBC’s account here.
