JETPACK VACATIONS

FUTURISM

 

If there's a common trope about "futurism," it's that it gets everything wrong.

 

From jetpacks to vacations on the Moon, any discussion of futurism in broader culture very quickly turns into a listing of the various crazy things that "futurists" (whether or not they'd call themselves that) have said over the past century.

 

Here we explore some of these predictions and look at some very real technological advances that have came out of pondering the future.

TECHNOLOGY PROGRESS
INNOVATION COMMUNICATION
Come!...
LETS TRAVEL INTO THE FUTURE.
WHAT, WILL, WE, SEE?

Technology can point the way to a future of limitless promise, a world of communication tailored to the needs of Today & Tomorrow.

 

A new world of innovation is constantly opening before us at an ever accelerating rate of progress, but man must carve his own course into tomorrow, a course that frees the mind and spirit as it improves the wellbeing of mankind.

THE SPACE ELEVATOR

SCIENCE FICTION BECOMING REALITY

In the future we might be able to use "Carbon Nano Tubes" to build a highway into space.

Space travel is too expensive, we need a way to go into outer space without using all that rocket fuel.

 

Since the 1970's NASA has been funding a trickle of research into a permanent lift into outer space.

A space elevator is nothing but a super strong cable up to 60,00 miles in length suspended from space and anchored to the planet Earth.

What keeps it afloat is the spin of the Earth, due to the centrifugal force and carbon nanotubes have more than enough strength to resist the pressure of being suspended from outer space.

The space elevator would allow us to leap frog the gravitational barrier of Earth using no rocket fuel and could drive down the cost of space travel 100 fold, that is why NASA is offering a $500,000 prize to the first group that can build a simple prototype of a space elevator.

BIO MOLECULAR
REVOLUTION

TOMORROW PEOPLE

The discovery of the fundamental laws of nature in the 20th century are opening up unparalleled possibilities for the 21st.

We are currently making the historical transition from scientific discovery to the age of scientific mastery, in which we will be able to manipulate and mould nature to our wishes and determine the destiny of life its self.

The Bio Molecular Revolution will give us a god like ability to manipulate life at the most fundamental level.

 It will enable us to grow human organs in laboratories, change our genetic heritage, enhance our abilities even shape the evolution of mankind, going from being passive observers to the dance of nature to becoming active choreographers of life.

 

Entering an era of unparalleled possibilities which raises profound questions about who we are and how we will live. We hold the future of humanity in our hands.
