I just wanted to post something that scientists and mathematicians, around 1970, predicted would happen in scientific breakthroughs. I thought this
was interesting because we have accomplished some of these things. Other things may not be accomplished any time soon.
I just want to hear what you all have to say about these predictions. If there likely any time soon, if they have been done, without the public
All of this Information was taken from a book called "Sound and Hearing" from the Science Program, Science Service.
Based on predictions by a panel of experts in a Rand Corporation study by Olaf Helmer (a mathematician) around 1970s.
"In This Time Period... Experts predict these developments!
1972-88, Reliable Weather Forecasts
1975-89, Artificial Organs made of plastic and electronic components
1978-2000, Primitive Artificial Life
1980-2000, Non-Narcotic Drugs for changing Personality
1980-2000, Controlled Thermonuclear Warfare
1980-2000, Mining of the Ocean Floor
1983-2000, Biochemical General Immunization
1983-2017, Psychotic cases treated by Physical or Chemical Therapy
1985-2005, Synthetic Protein for food

2005-?, Coma to permit a form of Time Travel
2020-?, Extraterrestrial two-way communication
2020-?, Control of Gravity

Well thats it for now. I'll come back on later with a link to predictions made by Scientists and Mathematicians of the present day.
