Quaint in a 1955-Disney-Tomorrowland kind of way, but this may be the ultimate fate of all science fiction. Throughout the story, scientific principles are often presented in the context of a debate between the main characters, who take opposing sides. Since neither position is necessarily correct (we know now), this is entertaining, though certainly not in the way it was for the book's first audience.
