More bad predictions about the future

Top 87 Bad Predictions about the Future lists several predictions, which proved wrong.
Yitzhak Rabin made another bad prediction in his autobiography - that independent satellite launch capability would not be feasible for Israel, and that its military value would not justify its cost. At 1988, Israel launched the Offeq 1 satellite using its own launch vehicle.
The next bad prediction, made by unknown opinion leaders, is that smaller countries, like Israel, would not develop their own independent manned space launch capabilities. Also, that only big countries would invest in building their own space stations and space colonies.  The jury is still out about this prediction.

Here is another one for you - In the 1960s, demographers thought the baby boom would be a permanent feature of life, not a temporary one.

So they predicted there would be 75 million Britons by 2000. It didn’t happen that way. The baby boom was just that - a boom.
