There were several. Probably the Best-known was Rocketship X-m the initials stoofd not for Experimental Model (or Missile) But Expedition Moon! If I remember correctly coded radio impulses sent by intervalometer (very High Tech) were used not only to pace the countdown but to time and control the staging of the rockets as the crew would be blacked out form accelerative G-forces for several minutes following the launch. now that"s thinkng Man"s science fiction.

The atomic bomb was invented by who in the 1950s?

The atomic bomb was invented in 1933 (by Leo Szilard) and finally built in 1945 (by the US Manhattan Project, which involved hundreds of thousands of people). It was duplicated in 1949 (by the USSR, assisted by information from spies in the US project). It was already in "mass production" by both the US and USSR by the early 1950s , thus not invented by anyone in the 1950s.

Is scifi true?

SciFi stands for science fiction, so by definition, it is fiction rather than fact. A science fiction writer can take a viewer to worlds that don't exist and to times that are far ahead of our own lifetimes. Some of the greatest science fiction writers have said that science fiction must still conform to known science. Isaac Asimov was a prolific writer in the mid 20th century and wrote several famous series of books. The recent film, "I Robot" was based on his book of the same name and relied on the three laws of robotics. Asimov claimed that well written science fiction could not make use of science or technology that conflicts with our knowledge of science today. Conforming to known rules of physics and chemistry means that the work is far more likely to be believable by the reader or viewer. With this in mind, science fiction should have at least some element of truth in it. As a testament to Asimov's adherence to real science in his imaginative works, in the 1950s, he introduced "MultiVac" into his stories. Multivac is a computer system that allowed every home to have a computer terminal linked to a global network driven my multiple data centers. He assumed that Multivac would be able to provide information, computing power and communication in almost limitless ways. At the time he wrote of Multivac, electronic computers were huge behemoths with no communication facilities and the convenient computer screen and keyboard were nothing more than a dream for engineers of the time. 50 years in and the Internet could almost have been created from his Multivac specification. So, his dream of computing was science fiction when he wrote it but has turned into science fact within half a century.
