Astronomers make predictions about the scientific discoveries which are to be built in 2017. Some of the most famous scientists, astronauts and astronomers share their thoughts. Lawrence Krauss, a cosmologist at Arizona State University, argued that he does not usually make a prediction unless he is asked to foretell what it will happen in two trillion years from now.
He claimed jokingly that it’s easier to predict something happening so far out because nobody will be able to check. Nevertheless, Krauss shared his incredible forecasts. Other scientists, like Buzz Aldrin, expressed their opinions too. Buzz Aldrin, the famous astronaut who was the second person to walk on the moon, is a leading advocate of planetary exploration.
He asserted that Trump’s interest to develop a space council might lead to a unified approach to shaping several aspects of military, civil and industrial space sectors of the US. Probably, America will prepare itself for entering a competition with other countries analyzing the evolution of human spaceflight systems which are meant to be used outward from Earth.
Aldrin has also pointed out that he believes that the Virgin Galactic SpaceShip Two of Richard Branson will stimulate the rhythm of testing to develop suborbital passenger service. He is also confident la the SpaceX Dragon 2, and the Boeing CST-100 Starliner will represent the core for the restoration of human capabilities when it comes to spaceflight.
Another important scientist who shared her thoughts is Dr. Julie Brefcynski-Lewis, who is an assistant professor of physiology and pharmacology at the Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute at West Virginia University in Morgantown. She worked on analyzing higher-order brain functions like meditation, social interactions, emotions and attention.
This scientific method was based on the confidence of the public and of the government that scientists are dedicated being bound to obtain certain outcomes. She believes that the biggest concern of 2017 will be revealing how science may adapt to cultural landscape continually changing regarding global participation, funding and public attitudes.
She foretells that virtual reality will have an even greater impact upon humanity and science, becoming a significant influence. In her research she explained that she is working on adapting positron emission tomography brain image technology in such a way that it will be wearable, allowing people were moving in a virtual environment. We need to prepare to be amazed by the wonders of technology held by 2017.
