How will the world look in the future? Will we be riding in flying cars, will we be living on Mars, will we be able to bring dinosaurs back from extinction and keep them as pets, could we be 3D printing our dinner? In this book, you will imagine amazing new technologies and then find out how likely they could be according to the real life scientists who are working on making them reality. 

Have you ever wondered what the future may look like? In this book, you'll explore 10 ways technology could alter our way of life. The challenge for you is to decide which changes you want for yourself and the world. In the future, will we teleport from place to place, keep dinosaurs as pets, or 3D-print our dinner? Will we live on Mars or upload our brains to computers? Could we solve climate change by making all our energy from mini stars we build here on earth? In this book, you'll meet the scientists working to bring science fiction to life and learn how soon we might have amazing new technology. You'll also delve deep into questions about right and wrong. Just because we can do something doesn't mean we should. How can we build the best possible future for everyone on Earth?
