Can you see into the future? Well, no – and no amount of staring into crystal balls, deciphering Tarot cards or reading tea leaves, is going to change that. Or is it…?

However, scientists do use mathematical projections to predict astronomical events, like eclipses. And they also use meteorological models to predict the weather. The predictions are not always right though because of course they do get a bit cocky about their abilities to see into the future sometimes! Not everything can be predicted accurately – especially the weather!
To be fair, it would have been very difficult to predict the explosion in personal computing over the past 50 years! It also would have been difficult to predict how much smaller computers would get. There is more computing power in your smartphone than in the massive contraption that was first delivered to the City Treasurer’s department in Norwich in 1957!
In fact, there’s more computing power in your smartphone than in the entire Apollo 11 mission to put mankind on the moon! So, there is nothing stopping you from going to the moon right now – go on, you’ve got a smartphone, what are you waiting for?!
The film did get some things right though – such as multiple TV channels. Nike are also bringing out a pair of self-tying trainers like those featured in the film!
So, it would seem that some things can be predicted – if you can think it, you can invent it – maybe? Got to be worth a try!
