When thinking about the future, I can’t know anything for sure; I can only make assumptions.

I’m very much interested in technology, so I would very much like to know what scientists have to say about the goals for the technology that they are currently developing. Furthermore, although I don’t think it would be possible to know, I would like to know some of the defining moments and people in the research that takes place. Who will make the discoveries? What discoveries are going to be made?

They said that “Elon Musk burns with a passion to colonize Mars”, and he is only one of the entities
