2001 Prometheus Award Nominees

Location: Worldcon in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Comments: In the book and the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, Arthur C. Clarke envisioned that by the year 2001 humanity have orbital colonies, regular passenger flights to Earth orbit, and a somewhat permanent manned presence on the Moon. The reality was slightly less impressive - 2001 was the year in which we finally got reliable public information concerning where and when the Prometheus Awards were bestowed. Although I'm pleased that the Prometheus Awards data is available, I think I'd rather have orbital colonies.
