Submission + - Scientific Landscape of the Next 50 Years

Slithe writes: New Scientist has posted numerous articles written by several top researchers who attempt to predict the future discoveries of the next 50 years. However, as with the Internet, we may not have even thought of the wonders that will await us. Anyway, the articles try to describe the next 50 years in the fields of ageing, alien life, consciousness, ecology, embryology, environment, evolution, genetics, health, humans, language, neuroscience, oceans, psychology, sex, social science, artificial intelligence, communications, computing, cosmology, space, chemistry, energy, materials, maths and physics.

No amount of careful planning will ever replace dumb luck.
