Imagination is more important than knowledge, Albert Einstein said. So let’s do a little imagining today by creating our own futures! I’m going to be listing down some things I hope the future will hold. And then hope against all hopes that I’ll be alive when that future comes.
Because I live in the city, the night sky is almost always void of stars. But just think. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to get boosted up into space, where you’re surrounded by nothing but planets and stars? And even better — if you could visit Saturn, the most beautiful planet in our solar system, or Jupiter, the biggest? Or maybe go beyond that, but we probably won’t be able to figure out the equation for warping just yet. However, I DO have some good news about this: apparently, NASA is working on a real life warp drive machine! The only problem is that one of the scientists said it would be impossible for it to happen in our lifetime. Aw.
No more traffic jams!
Laugh all you want, but I’m serious. Even though I don’t have a driver’s license yet, every time I am late for something, the traffic jams are to blame. If only our government could come up with a solution for this — like maybe cars that can squeeze through gaps between other cars? Think about it: you’ll never be late for work/school again! Or, they could even invent flying cars. Which brings me to…
Just take a look at this:
See any other cars in the sky? No? Then, ladies and gentlemen, you would be right. And did you know scientists actually predicted that flying cars would be up and running by the year 2000? Yep. Maybe they forgot to add in another zero when they made that statement.
I know we’ve read so many stories where aliens come to Earth to harvest its materials and kill off all humans, but what about friendly aliens? I think it’s fascinating that we’re not the only living beings in outer space, and that there tens, maybe even millions of other species of aliens out there, waiting (or not) to be discovered… But then I think about this, and suddenly I’m not so sure anymore:
Over to you!
What do you hope YOUR future will hold? Time travel? Teleportation? Inventions of your own? Feel free to share below!
