This fantastic chart by Isabelle Turner captures the most notable times that science fiction became scientific fact. On the left side, there is a list containing the date that the prediction was made, the individual who came up with the idea, and where they made their forecast. To the right, there is a list containing the date of the actual discovery and the years that elapsed between the prediction and the discovery.

Of course, there are probably some that are missing. Leave your contributions in the comments.
