If you could travel back in time three centuries, you’d encounter the last of Louis XIV’S wars for domination of the Europe, Benjamin Franklin publishing Poor Richard’s Almanack, and James Watt inventing the steam engine. This was a world during the Renaissance Age (14th to the 17th century) and a bridge between a period of European exploration and the age of machines.
But what if we could look 300 years into the future? What would Earth look like in 2300? For starters, what will the weather be like? Will artificial intelligence have taken over the world? Will we have established the first human settlement on Mars?
Depending on whom you ask, the year 2300 will either be very futuristic or an inferno of conflicts. Some experts suggest that by the 2100s, we will have begun using automation as a new means of outsourcing. We will begin harnessing atmospheric water to give the planet one more chance against a global water crisis. We will finally become a species harnessing the entire sum of Earth’s energy. Either way, the future looks quite impressive indeed.
What other technologies will shape the future? Will humans travel in starships? Will we reside in both lunar and Mars colonies? Where will we go from here?
