Life in the future | |Can you imagine what our lives will be like in the year 2050? Perhaps you will be flying off for a holiday on the moon, or maybe you will | | |be taking your dog for a walk in virtual reality. We recently carried out a survey or 1,000 people from different countries to find out | | |what they think life will be like in the future. The results clearly demonstrate both our hopes and fears. | |The survey suggests that friendship -one of the most important human relationships – will have changed dramatically.
People will make | |friends through by Internet. What is more, a large number of people will even come across their future husbands or wives in this way | |Computers will have become absolutely essential by 2050. Even now, some people describe them as their best friend! Others, however, say that| |we will become much more isolated from each other because we will have little real human contact. | |Education will have changed a lot too.
As more and more children will be using computer in school, certain abilities, such as mental | |arithmetic, won’t be necessary since there will be computer programs for most calculations. Even writing by hard will have become a thing of| |the past. | |According to the survey, home life will be better. Most people believe that by 2050 robots will be doing the house work and we will be | |eating ready-made food. A lot of people think that we might only cook for fun in the future. | | | |Space exploration will become increasingly popular.
Fifty per cent of the people we talked to believe that man will regularly visit Mars. | |They also believe that travel on our own planet will probably change. Almost everyone thinks that there will, be no cars in the city | |centres. Some even think that environmentally-friendly electric or solar-powered cars will have replaced the cars we use nowadays. | |Pollution is something that seems to worry many people. Some fear that it will continue to get worse, and that our planet will become | |impossible to live on. Others even foresee that one day we’ll have to pay for clean air just like me do now for clean water. |On the other hand, people seem to be quite optimistic about the benefits of genetic engineering, as they think scientists will use to cure | |diseases like cancer and AIDS. If scientists manage to find a cure for these, we’ll have a much healthier society. Some people worry about | |the future, while others are full of hope and enthusiasm. No matter how dark or bright it my seems, it is up to us to look after our planet | |and try to make it a better place to live. | | |
