Future Predictions from the past!

At this time of year many psychics try to make their mark by publicly declaring a string of “Predictions” for the year ahead. Sometimes these are spot on, whereas other times they are hopelessly over-optimistic, (I’m still waiting for that Hover board!).Anyway

I was interested to read this article today on the BBC News site reporting about an article written back in 1900 that made predictions for the century that would follow using only knowledge of contemporary science. However rather than taking that science to the next logical step, the author made huge leaps in his conclusions And still got a lot spot on!

 Anyway here is the link to the article  Have a read and let me know what you think.

It leads me to wonder if we can use our knowledge of today’s science to see where we will go in the next 100 years?
