The World in 2019, As Predicted by Isaac Asimov

Famous science fiction author and a professor of biochemistry, Isaac Asimov was asked by the Toronto Star around 35 years ago what he think the world would be in 2019 and he gave a few interesting predictions. The question was based from George Orwell's 1984 which was published in 1949, predicting what the world might be 35 years later. Here is Asimov's answer:

Asimov wrote that it was pointless to imagine the future of society if the United States and the Soviet Union were to engage in nuclear war, so he assumed that wouldn't happen. He then broke down his predictions under two main themes: computerization and space utilization.
